    Wouldn’t being a child – in and of itself – be a risk factor? Children are dependent upon their parents for safety, food, and shelter (in their minds, anyway, they have no other options). Children lack the understanding of any available alternatives. They also lack the capacity to analyze situations from an adult perspective. Both of these things put them at risk just by virtue of their age. They are utterly reliant upon a brave, ethical adult to intervene – which usually does not seem to happen, in my experience.
