Muggles the world over were captivated by the charm of Harry Potter's magical adventures, which spawned a new generation of readers and taught us lessons about everything from compassion to perseverance to the importance of standing against evil. But there's an even darker side to Harry's tale, one that, in reality, affects millions of children across the globe: abuse and neglect. This discussion focuses on how this affected the young Potter (and the older one, too) and how the reality compares. We talk about Lucius Malfoy, too.
