Nick on Alcohol

Nick on Alcohol Hello I’m Nick for the Family Peace Foundation. When I grow up I’m never going to drink alcohol. I reckon it’s the worst thing when my parents drink too much. They think it’s funny. Well I don’t and neither does my big sister. And the mornings after they drink too much [...]

Sophie on Listening

Sophie on Listening Hello I’m Sophie for the Family Peace Foundation. I wish Mum and Dad would take the time to listen to me. I mean – really listen and take me seriously. If only I could tell them how I feel about…well, lots of things really. It never seems to be the right [...]
