Me, definitely the latter...child abuse and neglect is horrible and efforts should always be ongoing to prevent it and stop it where it's already happening, but so many of us have either experienced or heard about so many different manifestations of this that there's really nothing that can be achieved by reading more other than wallowing in negative emotions. Now, if the childhood memories are followed up with how the person overcame them and went on to live the life they want to live, that could be a useful subject...I don't know how visible it would be because of all the other accounts out there, but if even one person learns that they're only a victim for as long as they choose to adopt the mentality then that could be a good thing.
Now, craft ideas are always a great and positive thing, and are a wonderful stress reliever. Positive parenting tips can help make sure that there are fewer child abuse and neglect memoirs to be written in the future. These are the types of things I'd rather dwell on :).
