If emotional abuse is to be a crime, who is guilty here?

If emotional abuse is to be a crime, who is guilty here?

A mother's misunderstood comment led to her being jailed and her daughter put into a care home

Each time I investigate a new instance of how crazily our “child protection” system has gone off the rails, I wonder how any story could be as bad. To paraphrase the opening lines of Anna Karenina, “all happy families are alike, but each unhappy family that has fallen into the clutches of this system experiences how corrupted it has become in its own way”.

This week’s example is that of a mother and daughter who lived happily together in the middle of one of the most beautiful areas of countryside

THE protection of troubled children has been hijacked by obstructive control freaks who rely on psychological advice instead of obvious solutions, a judge says.

Senior Youth Court judge Stephen McEwen has levelled scathing criticism against the Department for Education and Child Development - formerly known as Families SA.

In a transcript obtained by the Sunday Mail, he said the department was paralysed by its reliance on a team of highly paid psychologists.

Children and Families Bill becomes law after receiving royal assent

Children and Families Bill becomes law after receiving royal assent

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

DAVE FAGON, disgraced "night shift groper" wins probation.

 DAVE FAGON, disgraced "night shift groper" wins probation.

File this "probation" of the infamous 40-year old Dave Fagon, Children's Aid group home worker in Sudbury Ontario under "WTF"

This guy gets not even a slap on the wrist, it's more like a feather. He must be having a pretty good laugh.

OK, he was fired, and presumably to longer a social worker with CAS (he is now a "restaurant" worker), there is this very strange four year lapse by CAS in reporting the incident to police as a criminal matter.

The success of a newly qualified social worker’s first year relies on the retention of experienced staff to work with them

The success of a newly qualified social worker’s first year relies on the retention of experienced staff to work with them

Employers must be careful to maintain the right balance between newly qualified and experienced employees, says social worker Nikki Burton

Support for newly qualified social workers (NQSWs) in England has significantly improve over the last two years, thanks largely to work by the Social Work Task Force and The College of Social Work, and the development of the assessed and supported year in employment (ASYE). This has seen an increase in NQSW employment, particularly in the public sector, where ASYE programmes are more easily accessed.

For some local authorities, this can mean a higher

FACS NSW Stealing Twice as Many Children

Rates of abused and neglected children on the rise in Australia: report

Updated Fri 25 Oct 2013, 4:59pm AEDT

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

Please email us if you are interested in acting as a support person for someone in your area today. No one will know that you have found your family through Luke's Army, we offer this service only as a way of helping to improve the child protection system.

Kristie Harnish: You know a lot of powerful people. If you could share w any one that can help me make this video hit national news please send. This is a complete horrible display of system. Thank you sooo much.

I am absolutely disgusted with the woman who made this video.  I have  reached out to her on Facebook for comment and would give her the opportunity to tell her story right here on Legally Kidnapped if she chooses to respond and I will offer the father the same opportunity except I don't know who he is.  I have not yet heard back.

Nonviolent Parent Spent Year Reuniting Family

Nonviolent Parent Spent Year Reuniting Family

(WOMENSENEWS)-- When Nancy Vivioda, 26, set off for a meeting with Detroit's Department of Human Resources in 2004 she brought all five of her children and a false expectation.

The fast food worker was working nights and paying her bills. She thought she was going in to discuss some discrepancies with her current food stamp case. But the appointment turned out to be about her husband of four years.

At the start of the meeting the children were escorted into the department's playroom by a social worker, a common practice in child welfare.

NOTE: This is proof that privatisation of child protection is not the be all and end all. In Australia all states are currently rushing into privatising child protection as soon as possible. These treacherous ministers of child protection departments insist on privatising everything possible, except for the complaints sections, as this would be the end of hiding the truth about their heinous operations of family desecration on a mass scale.
