The ritual

Child starved
Child beaten
Child raped
Child killed

Please circle as appropriate
and state the year of concern

The teacher overlooked something was wrong
The doctor made a note too confidential to share
The social worker knocked at the door but didn’t wait
The mother never spoke
The dad never heard

Please circle as appropriate
and state the year of concern

They were overworked and not supervised
They failed to share
They were not trained for this matter
They did not listen

Please circle as appropriate
and state the year of concern
