What a heart-rending picture you convey of this poor child and the selfish, immature and quite possibly unfit parents screaming at each other.
It is sad if any responsible organization is so ignorant as to assume that only physical abuse is significant or warrants intervention - though where they may be right is that it can be harder to prove. And isn't it also frightening that the wife is a teacher ? One wonders how she treats the kids in her care.
I agree with amanda that it could be a good idea to make video / sound clips in any form possible, and forward them to Childline and Child Welfare and even the media, accompanied by a complaint that Childline and whoever else is not properly trying to protect this poor child.
