David Cameron recently inferred “We need to find out where we are going wrong in society” while talking about the two boys from Doncaster who committed evil acts.
Mr Cameron have you not been listening? You are forever being told by us and hundreds of other family groups all over Britain. It is the failure of well invested and thought out foundations of society that are to blame. Social services who are very efficient in business terms but failing the very people they are supposed to serve because of their main criteria of cost cutting and snatching children, alienating them from their natural family then adopting them to strangers. Their spiritual, emotional, mental needs ignored.
This regime is destroying family life as we know it and is creating a whole new type of family ‘The Family of the Gang’ where a child treated indifferently by social services finds a sense of belonging in a gang and completely rebels against society.
Gordon Brown Said there are 50,000 Dysfunctional families in Britain today.. With an average of 2 children in a family this gives us 100,000 children living in dysfunctional homes. It has never before been so obvious that social services cannot cope.
There is a need for the government to utilise every means possible as the problem is overtaking the help available. They need to make sure children are kept in a stable home by acknowledging their grandparents potential through the use of The Charter for Grandchildren.
Grandparents are ideal for early detection of child abuse because of their unique insight into their family's shortcomings and they can provide a stable a home environment not normally available in care and they should be the first point of contact. Social services do not recognise them as relevant persons in their grandchildren's lives and they are told "we don't need to talk to you" This is never in a child's best interest if they are in danger.
Why children need to be treated better.
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 children are not living with respect, love and stability they need to grow up into decent citizens. It is well known that these children are non achievers in life when they have been brought up in the care system they grow up turning to gangs for that family belonging and have little respect for society. 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 does not give grandparents any rights of contact with their grandchildren but It contains through the child all a grandparent needs to be recognised seriously in their lives.
The Charter if mandatory gives the children the right to expect professionals to comply with it or give reasons to the contrary. The ethos of the Charter is when anyone is dealing in the welfare of children the role grandparent’s play must be considered seriously.
We believe, if all is well, there should be equal parenting with grandparents as a back up for the welfare of children. We have no intentions of taking over or stepping on parents toes. Grandparents want to be considered more if the children are alone, have been abused or taken into care rather than go to strangers.
