    What relationship do you have with this child? How is it
    that you have the kind of detailed information that you
    present? Do you have childern of your own?

    If the mother is in fact hitting this child in the face he
    will certainly show bruises. I'm not sure that if Child
    Protective Services and the school counselor don't see a
    problem that help from outsiders is a solution that is
    logical to seek.
