BBC - Three Girls

Watched the program about the Rochdale Grooming Gangs last night, I thought it was well made and very hard hitting, as a father of two girls it hit home on how easy it is for this to happen. In fact on my morning run it was still going on in my mind how powerless the families and "Maxine Peakes" character were.

Now toying with the idea to let my 14 year old see it?

Absolutely shocking how the Police and Social workers turned a blind eye to it.

Note: Lets be very careful what we write also :)

Just watched it on iplayer , some of the comments in the Mail piece are on the nail , a difficult watch.
Maxine Peake was probably first on the list to play the sexual health worker , good casting as she gave a stellar performance . A must watch folks.

Not seen but we stopped this happening to a family member, my direct family became concerned so kept an eye on family members online profile, once they became concerned brought it to my wife and I's attention.
We went and spoke to parents of intended victim, they had no idea about persec and what the modern child could be up to on media devices, child involved could not understand why they were being restricted on media use, police were called, eventually somebody was court around the smoke, 2 years on police came back to show he had photos from on line, intended victim included, who at the time was about to go one a trip to meet what was thought to be a hot date, he was not hot or young. Intended victim has now been able to help a school friend in the same position.

Guilty party had got contact details from another he had groomed who moved from Guzz to the smoke area, we persuaded parents to police Faceache etc., that all contacts were known contacts, intended victim had over 1000 friends?? they personally knew an hand full at best.

Don't be afraid to have a say on some of your children's persec requirement's, they will kick off, normally with every one does that etc, one day they may thank you, it is an whole different world of communicating from when my children were young, the dangers were always there but the methods of contact have changed and become invisible.

Decided our eldest is going to watch it on I player later.
Brave but if you think it necessary then good look, just remember all teenagers think they are bullet proof and it could never happen to them?
My daughter used to moan like hell at the restriction put on her, now she is a mother she gets it and said thanks.

I read the iplayer version is slightly edited
 
Hopefully, there was a few tears and I think it was a short sharp shock type thing. Mrs JFH found out that the police nipped one in the bud locally about 2 years ago

She's watching it now, I think there will be questions at the end by the look on her face ☹

Mentioned it to Mrs S, she said you know your daughter best, and with some teenager, the shock treatment is a lesson never forgotten. Being there to answers her questions is needed but may not be a smooth ride, good luck.
 
She's been pretty good and even said that some of the girls in school could end up being like the two ring leaders, the penny has finally dropped, we tried telling her ages ago!!

She didn't watch episode two, but I think the message got across, about a hour later she came to us and sat cuddling mum asking questions on how the police didn't do anything etc. I think it will be a topic of conversation today at school as her best mate watched it last night as well.

It was an eye opener on how the young girl "Holly" turned her life around only to be hit by the 10 tonne lorry that opening the case again brought along.
