Serious Failings In Care- Daniel Pelka Trial The Daniel Pelka trial highlighted the horrific abuse that the 4 year old boy suffered at the hands of his Mother and her abusive partner. However it also displayed a clear lack of attentiveness and communication between the people who could of taken responsibility for the childs wellbeing. Daniel Pelka was found dead in 2012, and the circumstances surrounding his death were horrendous by nature. The cause of death was found to be primarily starvation, although the child displayed clear signs of long term abuse, and was described by medical professionals as 'resembling a concentration camp victim', due to the severity of his abuse and weighing over a stone below the average expected weight of a child his age. His Mother, Magdalena Luczak and her partner, Mariusz Krezolek were subsequently tried and convicted of a series of abuse charges, which included imprisoning the boy for several years and force feeding him salt.
She has always struggled with her confidence and belief in her own skills and abilities but doesn’t know when it first started but always seemed to have been that way.

Father was very critical of everything/anything. The boys of the family were always encouraged to do well but the girls were always told by the father they would never amount to much as they weren’t very bright and it didn’t matter anyway, so were never supported/helped.
A Child Called “It” In Dave Pelzer’s memoir of A Child Called “It,” he expresses the worldwide problem of child abuse. Published in 1993, A Child Called “It” is still affecting people decades later. The title of the novel says it all. The mother doesn’t see Dave as a son, nor a boy but as an “it.” Pelzer writes this horrific novel to mention what people shouldn’t have to go through. He experiences an abusive mother his whole life that he deals with in a very proficient way.
Once or twice a week, he would show up at his sister's place, where he could get a bath, a meal and a decent night's sleep. Yet, all of those nights of sleeping rough, made him look more and more untidy. He felt like his sister's boyfriend/husband didn't want him there - just by looking at the way he stared, or the tone of his voice. He decided to leave, and headed into the dangers of the streets, with absolutely nothing. Trying to find a job in the big city, was a lot harder than he ever expected.

The book “A Child Called It” by Dave Pelzer is a very strong and emotional autobiography of Dave Pelzer childhood. He wrote in this book about his struggle as a child to stay alive in a home where he was treated worse than an animal or a slave. I chose this particular book because as soon as I saw it caught my eyes and my attention, especially because of the title. Dave was treated very brutally by his mother while living at home with his father and brothers. She would give him verbal and physical abuse instead of giving him all the love and attention a kid of his age could ever want from his only mother.
