I dunno..I think I believe him. I know how corrupt officials can be and how deep it goes.

Hello there! I was just wondering how can I research more about the facilities Dr Xanthé Mallett was talking about. I'd be quite interested to learn more. Many thanks if anyone responds.

about time someone shared a perspective on all these things that was as intelligent as this guest's. about time someone made this much sense.

So glad there are now resources. The 5 days training worries me though.

Just listening to this man I like what he says a lot. He is very right. People often mistake love for sex and vice versa. Our way of communication has changed so much. I broke my ex's elbow just throwing a jam jar at him because he said something very hurtful. I expected him to catch it but really I wanted to express I was angry and hurt. I'm going to find the book and have a read. is it on Audible?

I never was in a church or anything but I totally understand. My sanctuary and my belief was my father and family. Until I realised a lot of things were wrong/illegal. As a 13 year old what do you do when you're threatened by someone you adored? You can't do anything but it sure dictates the rest of your life.

OMG!!! This was us too!!!! Avo's, breaking the AVO....12yrs on and we have had to move interstate, just me and my child. WA Police were so awful. I have sole custody now, but my child wants to change their name, but we can't without his consent......I mean wtf?? so I have to tell him where we are, so I can change my child's name?? Legal Aid dont know the answer....if they don't know, who can help?

This is just heartbreaking. I can't believe he had the nerve to say "sorry". What a b*std. I've experienced severe abuse and I know it messes you up for life. The system is set up so as this is the case unfortunately. Sending all my love whilst listening and wiping away tears 😭 💜 Take care of you and yours xx

Also a disabled mum, not sexually but in all other ways abused for 10yrs before I left and for 7 yrs after.i had no one. I was desperately trying to keep my child safe. He took me to court,admitted to hitting our child but told them it was the stress I put him under. The court used my mental health and gave him 50/50. He hit our child again 2yrs later. I took it to court in 2019 and he gave up his rights. Then we fled interstate. Still not sure how we did it. All of the systems are broken.

It has to stop, and it has to stop NOW....You should not have to sell up and move interstate to be safe and you should be able to rely on Police to uphold the law. We still live with this every single day. I applaud these brave ladies, and I applaud Lynn's Law. I hope and pray that someone finally listens.....my ❤ is with you.
