Grandparents Bid to Protect their Grandchildren.
Now it’s the festive season again how many children will be neglected or abused during all the partying and coming and going. When a child is abused or killed it is a horror story in the media that everybody says “is that not terrible something should be done” but are they asking the authorities if they are using every means of protecting our children? NO! Are they using the army of grandparents that can put a stop to ongoing child abuse if given the chance and costs next to nothing to do the job? NO!
Have you ever thought why society is getting more violent and muggings are on the increase. Why you are afraid to open your door or go out at night.. why you are afraid to phone the police for fear of reprisals. It is because society is turning a blind eye to how our authorities are dealing with the treatment of children.. Children are not getting the love and respect they need to grow up into decent citizens. Think about it when you next see a newspaper that carries a story of old women getting attacked or maybe yourself getting mugged or your house broken into.
The Charter for Grandchildren was created by The Scottish Government but not made legal. It states that when anyone is dealing in the welfare of children the role grandparents play in their lives must be considered more seriously. Not to take over or step on any parents toes, just to be considered more if the children are alone or have been abused or taken into care rather than go to strangers which the social services are famous for just to cut costs.
Grandparents go out of their way in trying to look out for their grandchildren’s welfare but are never recognised for their effort. Social services and the governments are the worst to acknowledge that grandparents are in a better position than any other organisation for early detection of child neglect and abuse and are always willing to put themselves out to accommodate children in a crisis situation.
Please care and help grandparents put a full stop to child abuse this New Year by telling your council that The Charter for Grandchildren should be mandatory for professionals.
