      Yes, it is heart rending. I was unaware of the charity offering help and support to the children of alcoholics until I read this story. Its a terrible problem but good to know the charity exists to help children in that position.

      Thank you for your comment. You make a good point about there being things going on in children’s lives of which their parents are unaware. Certainly not all children report being bullied and there are parents who have little (if any) knowledge as regards their children’s online activities.
