Warning on Mediation From Retired Ministry of Children and Family Development Worker

 MEDIATION - THE POISONED APPLE OF CHILD PROTECTION

Ray Ferris has written another timely piece today. Ray is an occasional contributor who provides sage counsel because of his years working with the Ministry of Children and Family Development. He meets many families who are struggling to recover their children from MCFD and is justifiably critical of the cruel bureaucratic delays. Today he writes about Mediation and expresses caution.

Mediation-the Poisoned Apple.
Social and administrative law, such as the ‘Child, Family And Community Services Act’, has certain aims and intentions.

NSW police protects alleged Tweed Heads paedophile ring

In 2004, concerned parent and whistleblower Fiona Barnett became determined to end teacher Gary Willis’ (then) 15 year alleged child abuse spree — but the NSW Education Department and police had decidedly different ideas. Here, Fiona tells the second part of this story (with managing editor David Donovan).

In 2004, when I was six months pregnant, my lawn mowing lady raised the alarm. She began complaining about a male teacher at her children’s primary school who was reportedly abusing students.

Note: The following is the spin put out by the government to gloss over the fact that it will now be even easier for Social Services in the UK to steal children, and sell them off on the internet on adoption websites. Hundreds of parents have already been jailed for speaking out about this obvious violation of human rights.

Children's directors welcome 'significantly improved' Act, but warn more work is needed to ensure it supports workers on the frontline

Children in care, prospective adopters and young carers can look forward to greater government support after the Children and Families

DCFS’s real crime? Breaking up families

The recent news that DCFS investigations are missing the mark isn’t news to me. I have sued DCFS more than a dozen times and have established, through federal court findings, that the state’s child-welfare system has a staggering rate of error in its investigations. But the mistakes my cases have demonstrated are much different from the ones highlighted by recent news stories about child deaths. In fact, they are just the opposite: They show a DCFS too quick on the trigger to pull children from the care of suitable parents.

Without any oversight,

Breach Of Trust by Department of Child Safety- by Gloria May Biron

It comforts me to see and know the courage those have taken up, to speak their hearts and share their story like all of you have here. 

My heart aches with reading everyone here. There never again is true peace to a mothers broken heart when it comes to the broken or damaged sacred bond with her child. There is never a sense of true security or comfort for the child who's bonds are broken or damaged, away from their mother. While life has a cruel way of forcing us to cope with our trials & losses, its never truley ok, or alright for the hearts forever grieving...forever yearning.

Outreach - Free Legal Advice for Parents in Inala and Greater South West Brisbane

OUTREACH
The Centre recognises that there is a great need for free legal advice and assistance not only in Inala, but also in the greater south west Brisbane area, and in particular in the Inala to Ipswich corridor. Residents of this wider community often have difficulty in arranging transport to attend at Inala. To meet this need we conduct outreach services at Booval and Goodna for those clients who have difficulty in traveling to Inala. An outreach service is also conducted for child protection matters at Ganyjuu Family Support Service at Logan Central.

Child protection services: A mother’s diary records the awful death of a child 'in care’

Jonas, a child with Down's syndrome, 'visibly regressed’ and eventually died after he was handed over to foster carers

Lord Justice Munby, recently promoted to be head of our family courts, announced again last week that he is determined to meet the tidal wave of criticism being directed at the system

It is four years since I began regularly reporting here on the most disturbing story I have covered in all my decades as a journalist – the way our “child protection” system has been allowed, by the secrecy imposed by the courts on all its workings, to go so horrifically off the rails.

Note: Freya Peterson is a prime example of a journalist who is so far up the ass of the Minister for FACS NSW Pru Goward she has lost sight of reality. I can write whatever crap I want to, but to glamorise the stealing of a whole generation like miss Freya Peterson has done in the following article makes her no more than a child stealer herself. At least she has given the figures, they don't bullshit.

What we really want to see is how many children died while

For all Munro’s attempts to erase the social work blame culture, we’re still a profession dominated by it, writes an anonymous social worker

Note: I haven't even read this yet, but I can see where it is going... "Blame Culture." You stole the child, you degraded the parent and blatantly called them a failure as a parent, the greatest insult anyone could unleash upon a loving parent possible. You personally drag the child from his home to the house of some stranger, where you turn your back on him leaving him there alone and confused.

You are not there to watch over them or to check on them,

Child Protection - Reasonable Doubt creating throwaway children

Child Protection - Reasonable Doubt creating throwaway children

Last week, I walked into the courthouse and I saw a kid in handcuffs with two sheriffs standing near him. I was surprised for two reasons.

One, it is not common to see anyone walking through a courthouse hallway in handcuffs. Courthouses are designed with hallways/entrances/cells/offices that the public never sees, so as to allow incarcerated people to be transferred in privacy and some dignity to cells and the courtroom.

Two, children and youth are not often found in the courthouse unaccompanied by parents.
