Thanks everyone for the explanations. OK Gene, We call a broiler-- a grill.!!!!!!! US English can be quite a bit different to OZ English!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
One never realizes how many English(es) there may be, eh?
A few years ago, I was invited to Washington, D. C. for the International Poets' Convention....anyway as I requested a "no smoking" room in the motel where the Conv. was held, I ended up where the Aussies and Brits were stabled(ha)! I loved to sit there and try to keep up with the differences in the English spoken but as I was the only American in the bunch, they were always bugging me to talk....they loved my deep southern English....at least they said they could understand me because I spoke relatively "slow" compared to either one of their English(es)! I was lucky to obtain a seat in the conv. hall close to them and when it came time for different folks to read their winning poetry, these Aussies and Brits would "interpret" their country's poetry winner's reading! It was sure a treat to be mixed in with them!
Coupe of points about the WINGS website. 1) Why restrict it to sexual abuse? Why not emotional, and physical abuse also? Those are actually far more devastating, and are also illegal in 47 countries. 2) The 'Healing' section isn't that helpful. Abuse is trauma, trauma which needs a trauma specialist. Someone trained in EMDR or IFS. Read 'The Body Keeps the Score'. 3) Go to the ASCA site and read their book, do their program, attend their group therapy sessions.

ipsedixit: Further, if you have information about child abuse and are witholding it from the police (and posting it instead on tmb), pm me the information and your sources, and I will contact authorities for you.
