Years ago when my son and daughter were little, I took them to a fun park.

My son went off to ride the toboggan and my daughter and I went to play mini golf, which unfortunately was closed, so she went and played to the swings and monkey bars and I sat in the shade under a tree.

I notice one mother come and collect her children, and the pattern was repeated time and time again. Until the only child left was my daughter on the play equipment.

Big Mama. "Far more children are killed and abused by their mothers, than by their fathers."
That might be so in some communities where many fathers are in jail or just gone walkabout, but I don't think the overall statistics will support your statement.

An overwhelming majority of physical abuse (both fatal and non-fatal) is committed by fathers.
