The iron hand that rocks the cradle by Marianne Haslev Skanland, Professor Emeritus, Bergen, Norway
Some extracts from this article:
The truth is: Almost all families attacked by the CPS are both good and loving. Some need help, e.g. financial; but most of them need nothing other than to be left in peace by this vicious agency and its helpers. The CPS smashes the family and destroys the individuals.
Parents who are frightened or who protest are stamped with a quack psychiatric diagnosis. There is not much need of real social work in Norway and what there is (helping out with practical tasks such as washing and cooking in homes where the parents are ill), the social workers do not want to do. The CPS, in order to have work, wants children and they attack anybody who is vulnerable. That means mostly poor people, Norwegians as well as foreigners, because they are helpless to defend themselves. The general population chooses to disbelieve and despise the families, to believe CPS lies, and to believe that they themselves could never be hit because they are such good parents.
It would be useful to make a list of the countries where such crimes take place in order to warn families who go there with their children. I know so far that such are Scandinavian countries, Germany, and the UK. The following comment to the above mentioned article talks about Switzerland.
I saw a subtitled documentary on french channel TV5 about Switzerland and how it had been removing children from their homes for years for the mildest of pranks like hiding the clothes from the clothes line of a grouchy neighbour or listening to modern music not conforming to a dress code They were kept in juvenile homes for years together. There were actual victims ( the children now adults ) .. speaking out about how their lives had been ruined by this .. and their parents too similarly had no recourse to the law to get their children .. the state organisation had psychologist which branded them with tags like sexual addicts ( because some underclothes had also been in the clothes hidden from the clothesline ) The Swiss story too echoed the things in this article and I think it would be great if the Hindu continues its coverage.
BarnasRett.no: a forum for people focusing on children and their obvious right to live with, and have continuous contact with, their biological family.
