1: NEVER contact social services (child protection) for help or advice. You should consider very carefully before you report a partner who batters you or even a stranger who sexually assaults your young child, as if you do the SS will as often as not take your children into care (and later for adoption) to “protect them” from risk! If they have your children and you are fighting to get them back, NEVER NEVER tell social workers how you think you are going to defeat them, or what you are going to do next! Remember, without mentioning it to “them”, that even if your children are “in care”, social workers do not have the legal power to stop your children going to any call box (without any money) to dial 100 and asking the operator to reverse charges and to put the call through to their parent(s), or from going to any public library and e-mailing you, or even meeting you for a meal as long as they return “home” to the fosterers afterwards!
Care home girl abused by 25 men in 2 years | Mail Online – Last updated at 11:32 27 August 2006 …
A 14-year-old girl placed in a council children’s home was prostituted to a group of depraved middle-aged men because staff were powerless to stop her going out. The horrific story of ‘Becky’ is highlighted in a BBC television programme presented by Fiona Bruce this week which reveals how she was sexually abused by 25 men over two years – despite being known to social services and having been placed on the Child Protection Register.
Even when she was put in a children’s home – six months after her earliest allegations of abuse – staff allowed her to be used as a prostitute for fear their intervention might infringe her human rights. If the “SS” cannot prevent a young girl in their care from working as a prostitute, then surely they cannot prevent other young people they “care for” from spending the day with parents if they so choose!
Remember also that children of school age have a break; so you can call them and speak to them through the railings without trespassing and nobody can stop you except a judge by serving a court injunction on you that will be too late to stop you reminding your children of their real family!
Remember also that if your children suffer visible damage whilst being fostered, TAKE dated and timed PHOTOGRAPHS of black eyes, bruises, cigarette burns or other injuries and give them to the police, your MP, the NSPCC then ring Childline to make criminal complaints demanding prosecution of the perpetrators! Don’t take “no” for an answer from any of them!!!
Remember also that if children are 16 or more, they will often be released from care. Sometimes, however, the “SS” take a particular dislike to a family and say they will keep the child until 18 when the care order must expire.
NEVER MIND! There is a way out ! If a child marries at 16 then the care order ceases! A marriage anywhere in Scotland does NOT need parental consent. Take the hint!
