@EvN:

I can't agree more. It is a crime treat it like one. Use laws in place for sexual assault on a child. If it was about incest the child would have been taken out of that home. This practice can be tried as a sex crime. It is a sex crime.

Maybe what they mean by guidance is tact. Approach the subject with tact after all the victim is a child. It is valid to train teachers how to approach the victim or potential victim and how to deal with the parents of the victim as well as what to do next and who to call in for investigation...

After this dentist's Exposé every doctor who has access to anesthetics should be monitored. Even veterinary doctors. The unscrupulous are fast and many.
