There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children- Nelson Mandela

In light of the illegal and increasingly vicious trolling that Lighthouse International Group has received from a handful of aggrieved ex-partners and other trolls, along with a recent false libellous article in the Daily Mail, one of the anonymous trolls stated that maybe they should contact the local social services because they believe we are not qualified to work with vulnerable children.


Paul Stephen Waugh addressed this suggestion and we will be providing details of national child social services numbers on our website, so if they wish to report us and anyone else, they can.


Here is exactly what the anonymous troll “Impossible-488” said to the rest of the trolls on Reddit:


“On the vulnerable children thing, maybe we should report them to the relevant local Children’s Services? Because in what way are Lighthouse goons in any way qualified to work with vulnerable children?


You could argue, and I would, that turning children, not even those defined as vulnerable, away from families / friends is child mental abuse. They’re not qualified, monitored and regulated Social Workers.”


We are not here to play games with these trolls, especially when it comes to the safety and well-being of children, so we invite the anonymous troll to call social services if they believe they need to report us. If they are truly concerned, they need to get their facts and evidence in order and take action. We have even provided them with details to assist because we have absolutely nothing to hide. In fact, all our children here know they are protected and safe because we are holding people accountable to their destructive and murderous behaviour.


Kris Deichler, a Lighthouse International Associate partner, published an article on why the trolls' behaviour warrants them being called trolls; it highlights that they have absolutely no concern for anyone except themselves, much to say the welfare of children.


So, whilst they continue in their hateful attacks, we will carry on with our crucial, vital and critical service in helping children and adults alike.
