    Default SBS Insight looks at Removing Kids

    hi everyone ...

    Just got a press release about an upcoming episode of Insight on SBS that I thought might interest some on you.

    INSIGHT: Removing Kids
    Tuesday 6 March, 8.30pm on SBS ONE

    "This week Insight puts kids in the spotlight and asks them whether children are better off with their biological families – even when it is abusive or dysfunctional.

    Some child protection experts say children are left for too long in unsafe homes because the system is wrongly geared towards the rights of the parents. They say money is being wasted on family intervention services that simply don’t work, and vulnerable children should be removed earlier and permanently adopted out.

    But others say a tougher approach would wrongly punish lower socio-economic families, and say parents should be given chances and support to improve their behaviour.

    Insight asks kids themselves just how bad a family situation needs to be before a child is removed, and whether they think we've got the balance right.

    Agree with this.

    But others say a tougher approach would wrongly punish lower socio-economic families, and say parents should be given chances and support to improve their behaviour.
    This attitude has widely contributed to the current mess the system is in and why children continue to suffer.

    There's also not enough training for child protection workers who are often vastly under equipped to deal with even the simplest of situations. In order for the children to be properly served, more formal training should be demanded for new incumbents and regimented. As it is, too many untrained workers are presently in the system and often make bad situations worse and that's just not acceptable in my view.
    Allowed??? Um... isn't it YOUR body, baby, birth??? You can put whatever you want to in your birth plan... it's your human right! Hospitals are very good at acting as though THEY are in charge of you, your body, your baby and your birth, don't fall for it!- AM on The Politics of Breastfeeding
