I know, I 've experienced similiar punishments as a small child, locked in a closet for days, without  food or water, one of many ways the "monster" dealt out horrible punishments for my brother and I, for the least little "infraction"/mistake.
Children are NOT commodities, they ARE human beings, so young, so vunerable, and SO defendless, many with no hope, abandoned by the families, friends, AND officials and society. When will this mode of behavior end?????
