Most people think of New Zealand as a wonderful place to live: beautiful scenery, friendly people, laid-back lifestyle. And for the most part, they would be right.
However, New Zealand has a shockingly high level of child abuse, and many disturbing cases have made the news over the past few years.

I recently read an article about what Kiwi children are wishing for, for Christmas this year.
Some of them are funny: “I am a good boy with an annoying brother so I think I should get something big this year.”
And some are a little bit heartbreaking: “I know there are lots of kids out there that won’t get much this Christmas so my biggest wish is for all those kids to have a happy Christmas and for you to give some of my presents to them.”
As I was reading through the article it got me thinking – what do I want for Christmas?
