Agree with this.
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.
This attitude has widely contributed to the current mess the system is in and why children continue to suffer.
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.
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
