According to the Director of the organization”, Barnardo” Anne Marie Carrieres, very sad that adults in the UK believe today’s children and teenagers a lost generation, comparing them with animals. Moreover, they try to close their eyes to what is often responsible for bad behavior of children lies with the adults. 38 percent of respondents reported that children and adolescents faced with problems, do not need help.
