I heard on the news on R4 today that child poverty is up. The interesting thing about it though was the way that they described child poverty. Apparently child poverty is not that the child does not have enough food etc. no. Its when these children do not get what other children take for granted. So any child who say does not have a bike is in child poverty? Or a skateboard? Or a Wii? Does anyone have the proper definition of child poverty?
