Question It!


It’s amazing the amount of sadism parents will tolerate in the name of education – and initiation.

Researching Reform

Welcome to another week.

Abusive initiation ceremonies in sport where children are being sexually assaulted by peers are still viewed as ‘the norm’ by parents and sporting professionals.

It has also been reported that high profile and well connected parents have been trying to convince police receiving complaints that this kind of behaviour is ‘just a bit of fun’. A sharp increase in reports of child sexual abuse in sport raises serious questions about British culture and the pressure on children to ‘agree’ to being assaulted in order to be part of clubs and elite teams.

Our question this week then is this: how can we ensure this kind of abuse in sport is stopped?
