Foster Father Abused Me!

on Tue, 01/28/2014 - 05:35

Hello,

I just wanted to say that the problems of the foster care system (corruption, incompetence, cover ups, etc) go far beyond QSLD or even Australia.

I stumbled across this site and I was raised in the foster care system in BC, Canada. I was abused in multiple homes, ignored by my social workers, and later had to endure a cover up when they withheld evidece from my case files (I obtained as an adult) so that I couldn't proceed with a lawsuit/investigation. All evidence of my claims/mistreatment/calls for help were taken from the file and all else was blacked out.

I recently discovered

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

CPS Imposes Tremendous Stress Upon Children and Parents by Acting on Anonymous, Falsified Reports

CPS Imposes Tremendous Stress Upon Children and Parents by Acting on Anonymous, Falsified Reports

Why filing falsified CPS reports is “legal” (not really, it’s just never investigated)

CPS will tell you they must protect the “integrity” of anonymous reporting, even if the report is falsified. They claim that in many cases, they don’t even know who made the report (untrue, because every telephone number is recorded in the file).

If I call to report witnessing a murder and I refuse to give my name or refuse to testify, there is no evidence of who committed the crime.

Northern Territory Child protection fears in 'broken' system

The Northern Territory's peak child welfare body says the child protection system is broken.

Lesley Taylor, the founder and Territory manager of the National Association for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (NAPCAN), says the system was not designed to manage the sheer number of people who need help in the Territory.

She says there must be a wider focus on early intervention and support for families.

"What we find is there is endless tinkering to try and make this system [work] that was never designed to work in this way," she said.

She says that to get numbers down to where

Child abuse and neglect statistics

Note: There are no figures here of the amount of people actually proven in a court of law to have abused or neglected their children.

In this paper we present and discuss a snapshot of data describing child protection activity in Australia. The data presented is a summary of the data provided in Child Protection Australia 2011-2012 (Australian Institute of Health and Welfare [AIHW], 2013).

In Australia, state and territory governments have the statutory responsibility for protecting children from child abuse and neglect.

Sweden pays out first compensation to abused foster kids

Sweden said Friday it had begun paying out 250,000 kronor (30,000 euros, $39,000) in compensation to Swedes who suffered abuse as foster children between 1920 and 1980, after rampant physical and sexual abuse was revealed.

A first group of 15 people were granted compensation on Friday.

They had all been subjected to "serious forms of abuse or neglect... for example repeated sexual abuse or systematic physical abuse while in an orphanage or foster care," the head of the Swedish state's newly established Compensation Committee, Goeran Ewerloef, said in a statement.

The committee was created

THOMASTON — After six years, two parents are still struggling to gain custody of their children.

Joe Watley and Karin Hasemann haven’t seen their children since September 2008, they said. Watley said since their birth, the parents’ visiting hours with the children were restricted to two days a week for two hours. Today, Watley said the children are five and six years old.

“We’ve been run through a gauntlet,” said Watley, who lives in Thomaston.

I was so damn young. All i wanted was my mum. a poem by Tayla Chambers

Forums: 

Neglected and hurt, defensive and sad,
When i was little, things were pretty bad.
Id been mistreated and forgotten,
And simply treated rotten
I was so damn young
All i wanted was my mum.

When they came to our door and took us away
I didnt know what to think, how to act, what to say.
I held onto my little brother and tried to be grown up
When my 'carer' did wrong things i did as i was told and kept silent.
A month with strangers then shipped off with another,
They said say 'bye to mum, and all you know, including your brother'.
They said he was my dad but he terrified a tiny child,
A big man,

Clumsy children labelled as neglected Australian Institute of Family Studies

PARENTS of clumsy children are risking neglect charges if they show up too many times at a hospital emergency ward.

A new report from the Federal Government's Australian Institute of Family Studies advises child protection workers to classify children who repeatedly hurt themselves as "high risk of neglect''  even if the injuries are minor. Accident-prone children might be the victims of poor parental supervision, it says.

"In an assessment of child maltreatment, child protection practitioners should consider children with multiple accidental injuries to be at high risk of neglect,

Advice for Parents dealing with DCF from an Attorney

In the article "Attorney Participation in Family Partnership Meetings," Sara R Brennan, NACC Legal Intern, wrote:

Without the assistance or guidance of an attorney, many parents volunteer information that can later be used against them, without a complete understanding of the consequences some of their statements can have. Parents may also agree to safety plans that can later be used against them in proceedings if they do not comply with every single provision of the plans.
