Children are the most common victims of neglect, punishment, and violence, whether physical, emotional or psychological. Violence very often occurs within the family or is committed by acquaintances - which can be particularly destructive.

In Hungary, one in every 10 children lives in danger because of five violence. Every second child got involved in a fight at school. Every month, 3 children die in the five baptismal sanction. Out of all the punishments for children, every second one comes out. The rest remains hidden. The child is alone and needs to solve the situation alone.

We use mobile phones, computers and the Internet in the most natural way possible. If we want to help them, we need to learn the language they speak. We need to use the tools they use.
