Child protection can't be blamed here. From everything I have read, he showed no sign of being a risk to the child. Workers aren't clairvoyant. We talk on here about the fact teens can still be wonderful parents. But then blame the dept when a child dies to a teen parent.
Where is the ownership of the parents? and not just in this case, but in all cases of abuse. Many people that abuse their kids don't have a MI. They are not psychotic, they know right from wrong. The dept is spread so thin, I don't think the general public realises how much. They are also bound to the courts. They can't remove a child without firm proof, and without the permission of a judge.
I think our society has become one where we don't take ownership for our actions and always want to blame something or someone else. Barring psychosis, which I'm reading this boy did not have, he knew what he was doing. Yes he's had a sh*t life. I worked with these very kids for a decade so I feel I qualify to have an opinion. Their life is an explanation, not an excuse.
Sorry for my rant I just get frustrated that the dept cops a hiding all.the.time. They investigate 'supposed' innocent families and people hate them for that. They don't catch every child and some fall through the cracks and they cop a beating. The pressure and case load is unbelievable. Many run with 35+ families at any one time.

Most babies if they need monitoring at bunbury will be kept in the nursery but judging by the fact that they were going home the next day I would say the baby would be in with its mother. Two of my bubs needed extra care one was in a billy ruben crib and another needed sugar level monitoring and they were always in with my in my room

I stand by my previous comments. It's actually somewhat difficult to get orders and you need proof. I'm sorry you have had a bad experience, but in my experience, workers are extremely meticulous with the process.

Delirium I certainly wasn't bashing CP for my part, I think they need more staff and more resources and to be able to do lore than they currently can. And I agree they are bound by the courts, as
Many of us are, which is why is advocate for lobbying to change the family law system (again) to better protect families from violence. And I think it is Getting more and more likely given the awful stuff that's been happening lately.

The system needs an overhaul with more funding more workers and more help! But this wasn't their fault they weren't to know this boy in particular was going to hurt his baby having said that he did hurt the mother so this could have been prevented with a court order for him to stay away. From what I've seen if child protection are completely against DV especially around children so he should not have been there.
