What is BLACK TEARS?

 

This book is written from experience both professionally and personally. It is about breaking the cycle of domestic violence, to keep our children safe for the future.

As parents, we don’t know what we don’t know but go with what experience has taught us. I reflect on the SBS program from the National Geographic Documentary Films Diana in her own words. And I quote; ‘He wanted to try and have a home life of some sort, but he didn’t know how to do it. He had never been taught so the whole thing just evaporated.’

My vision is to make a difference, to give parents insights, educators an early intervention and prevention tool and children a voice.
