UNICEF Report Comment.


ANONYMOUS WRITES:

The New Zealand government is not interested in Child, Welfare or those of the family.

From my own experience of having my children Uplifted by CYF, at no time have they ever asked me to do any anti violence programmes parenting courses or anything else.

They would like the family court to believe that they have helped me, when in fact any and all counselling has been funded by ACC.

You see from young age I was abused by adults and spent most of my childhood in foster care.

It is extremely telling that our government does not collect statistics, on Child Welfare Issues.

Let’s have an informal poll of CYFS WATCH

1. ARE YOU ON A LOW INCOME OR BENEFIT? YES

2. ARE YOU A SINGLE PARENT? YES

3 HAVE YOU YOURSELF BEEN IN CYFS CARE? YES

4 DO YOU HAVE MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES/ OR HAVE BEEN TOLD BY CYF YOU HAVE? YES

5 DID CYFS BECOME INVOLVED ATER THE BREAKUP OF A SIGNIFICANT RELATIONSHIP AND WAS THAT RELATIONSHIP VIOLENT OR ABUSIVE YES

6 HAVE CYF EVER SUGGESTED ANY PARENTING COURSES ETC? NO

7 HAS CYFS USED STOPPING ACCESS AS A WEAPON (for instance if children misbehave in care they will stop or reduce access) YES

8 HAVE YOU BEEN TOLD WHAT CHANGES CYFS WOULD NEED TO SEE FOR YOUR CHILDREN TO BE RETURNED HOME? NO

9 HAS CYFS OFFERED ANY SUPPORT TO YOU AT ALL? eg money for food, home help etc NO NOT UNTIL I BEGGED

10 DO YOU FEEL THAT YOUR LEGAL REPRESENTATION HAS BEEN ADEQUATE? NO.

Let’s call for Cindy Kiro and her office to be closed down and the Famlies Commission.

The money spent here could be used to support families at the coal face, same with FGC they do not work for the most part and seem to be just a move to pit family members against each other.

Same with Strengthening Families.

I have to say with apologies to the Martin Family that perhaps their wee boy may have lived if 24/7 home help had been available to them.

After all Post Natal Depression is not a crime but an illness not caused by a lack of moral courage but by changes in brain chemistry.
