The mother of a two-year-old girl who was raped in Tennant Creek earlier this year has defended herself against claims she exposed her children to violence and neglect.
A 25-year-old man was recently charged over the rape as police dropped charges against another man.
A report by Northern Territory Children's Commissioner Colleen Gwynne said the child's family was known to police and welfare agencies for numerous incidents, such as domestic violence, aggravated assault convictions involving the parents, and sexual abuse against some of the woman's other children.
The girl's mother, who can not be named, rejected negative comments about her and her portrayal in the media as unfair, saying the rape was not her fault.
The woman is now in Adelaide and has had the rape victims and another young child removed from her but is still the carer of her older children.
"Just don't go talking about my life, and putting my picture up, painting me as a bad mother," she told SBS TV's The Point on Thursday.
"I'm not a bad mother, I'm a good mother. I worry about my children and their safety, and I love and care about them.
"The media's blaming me, putting my face up, saying that I'm an alcoholic, but I'm not. I'm a social drinker. I look after my children and my family.
"The media said that my house was a party house, but it wasn't."
The mother said alcohol restrictions in communities such as Tennant Creek were more of a problem than a solution.
"That's when they loaded up houses, townhouses with alcoholics ... it's just that some people would come past and sit down with their alcohol in my yard because they weren't allowed to go and drink outside of town," she said.
"This could have been avoided if people were allowed to drink everywhere, out of town.
"They can't drink outside of town because it's restricted and they have to have [an] address and have ID to help get alcohol and drink it at the house."
However, Ms Gwynne says restrictions have had a positive effect, reducing presentations at hospital, violence and crime.
The Prime Minister criticised the NT government on Thursday, saying "they have not done enough" to stop the abuse of children.
NT Treasurer Nicole Manison said the Commonwealth had committed no money to recommended changes to youth detention and child protection after the Royal Commission it called for.
