Patch Self-help's insight:

This has happened to many parents for no fault of their own, most times, and is a very painful experience for the parent to endure. Concern for the children continues relentlessly as these estrangements are immeasurably damaging to the children too. Little sympathy tends to be given parents who are apart from their children and the children likewise might have to suffer in silence about their sense of disconnection.

More could be done to heal relationships which are breaking down or to sustain the bond beteen children and both parents if they have to part. Distance does make a difference. An Englishman traveling to Sweden to be near his child and even relocating there demonstrates the extent to which the power of parenthod is affected by distance and the strength of will that can be employed even if to no avail.

More support for children to retain both parents please.

Parents apart from thier children - PATCH -

Meet twice monthly 2nd Thurs & 4th Friday

for details or correspondence of any kind including letters for inclusion in our paper newsletter

(mark for publication) email: parentalquest@hotmail.co.uk

 

Thanks to Comic Releif and the support of Self Help Nottingham were able to plan an expansion in our activities for 2012. This was to include regular walks in and about the city of Nottinghams many lovely Parks. The rain during much of the year reduced participation but now at the end of July the sun is shinning again!

A boat trip to Highfields was a semi success as, despite a group of us getting there together on a seemingly suitable early summer day, it turned out the boating facilities were not available. We had so hoped to get rowing before the busy summer holiday period but we honestly enjoyed our lovely walk around the whole lake followed by a nice cuppa and a piece of cake. This how to take care of yourself by enjoying a treat once in a while.

 

We aim to have regular group walks in local parks when the weather permits - if you become a PATCH group attender you might like to enjoy the next one with us - email for details parentalquest@hotmail.com.

 

 

 

You can make a Self referal via Self Help Nottingham tel 0115  911 1661

You may prefer to ring the mobile to talk but if it is 'off'  try leaving a short message - after listenning to ours which may repeat some of what you have just read.  Remember we are not professionals but we have experience and various perspectives to offer on issues to do with 'absent' parenting - or what ever you may like to call it.

 

Thank you.

It was attended by just 4 people on this occasion. One who normally attends was kept away because they are busy studying for an Open University degee - another wanted to watch the Olympics on TV!
Those who came had a great time chatting, drinking tea/coffee and sharing food we'd brought for that purpose.
Its always good to share and care - like we do. A nice walk to the bus stop was the only exercise we got - but lots of laughs helps shed weight too, did you know?

Patch Self-help's insight:

Home schooling is right that needs to be held onto in all countries. there are good reasons why people need to be able to home educate their children. Besides that having children forcefully removed is wrong for almost any reason without good justification. Whatever justisification is clained to have been found needs to also be scrutinised before removal or any prolonged separation of the children from their family.

 

Watch out for each other people. Your child may be at risk of being thought to be at risk. Educate yourselves on whats happening.

Patch Self-help's insight:

It must be difficult to evaluate the success of case care outcomes. Is it really possible to determine what the out come would have been with no or differrent intervention? Each case is not the same so procedures need to be flexible and none assumptive. Spliting a child from the birth family is rarely a positve measure so maybe more needs to be known about Family Law Advisors.

Patch Self-help's insight:

In Finland there is also a development in mental health practice known as Open Dialogue. Look it up. In Nottingham there is a group of people trying to bring Open Dialogue to the UK starting locally. What is it? It is a way of treating people in distress with real care and understanding rather than sedating them with drugs and labeling them Psychotic for life with on going prescriptions. The best way to avoid side affects. It is a real education so do look up more about this and look out for MHAW in Nottingham where you can find an event focuswd on Open Dialogue in the orange leaflet out soon in Libraries and GP surgeries.

15-åriga finska elever har fått fortfarande bästa resultat i internationella PISA-studier. Därför talar man om den "mytiska finska undervisningen". Jag tror att bakom den där framgången är viljan att lära sig. De förflutna tider har inte varit lätta för Finland. Kampen mot fattigdom, kampen för nationell existens, kampen för ett eget språk. Är det möjligt att just den hårda kampen har påverkat finnarna så att uppskattningen av kultur, bildning och lärning har utvecklat särskilt kraftigt bland medborgare? Jag bara frågar.

some bedrooms are so small they are better classed as box rooms. This is a point that can be used to challenge the reduction of benefit. Apprently if the room is 6ft x 9 ft or less it would qualify as abox room - the total area has to be less than 70 sq/ft? Even so this money saving exercise is only causing harsdhip and distress.

Patch Self-help's comment, August 24, 2013 6:45 PM
There are not enough homes owned by the council to re-accommodate those who are 'under occupying'.and it is truly just another financial penalty being invented to take more money away from those who have the least, because the wealthy can't afford to be the ones to pay their own debts. housing prices are faked to create wealth for a minority. It make no real difference to anyone else if a bedroom is empty or not constantly used.

At our little get togethers every few weeks , it has become a safe custom for us to have a wee snack , whilst in discussion. It is mostly cake . We share these cakes like we are in holy communion together. Todays gathering was about having a meal together or a takeaway. As you can see there is some fresh rocket on the table . Very tasty I couldn't help nibbling. On my other blog account I will upload the food minus the diners .

 

A lot of people go out clubbing on a Friday night . Well we go home sober ,at the time they are getting "warmed up".  I find it more relaxing to chin wag over stuff with friends , than shouting at 100 decibels over a bass speaker , using animated hand gestures.

Why have Antipsychotic Prescriptions in Children Skyrocketed?


By Dr. Mercola

Thanks to aggressive marketing techniques, pharmaceutical companies are raking in profits from atypical antipsychotic medications – drugs originally approved for mental illnesses that are as serious as they are rare.

It's no surprise then that a major portion of the sales of these types of "hard-core" psychiatric drugs come from off-label uses. Drugs such as Seroquel, Zyprexa, Risperdal and Abilify are now increasingly prescribed by psychiatrists and primary-care doctors to treat conditions they were never intended or approved for, such as:

Anxiety
Attention-deficit disorder (ADD)
Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
Behavioral problems, and
Insomnia
Most of the atypical antipsychotics were approved in the 1990's, at which time they were reserved for a very small minority of serious mental illnesses; primarily schizophrenia and bipolar disorder – diseases afflicting an estimated three percent of Americans. More recently, some atypical antipsychotics have also been approved for the treatment of severe depression. Shockingly, children as young as 18 months are now receiving antipsychotic drugs, despite the fact that the diseases they're designed to treat rarely develop before adolescence.

Why are the needs of the baby being dismissed despite evidence and common knowledge that the mother is the centre of that life?  By taking the baby away the mother is also being abused. Separation of this type is cruel.

When will the needs of people be put first with a drive towards compassion rather than the powers that steal children away?

Patch Self-help's insight:

This is no mere mom-with-a-mission melodrama but a serious drama rooted in fact. Yet the nature of the scandal supposedly being laid bare goes mysteriously unexplored.

Similarly today many children are being cared for by our government who have taken on parental responsibility and the mystery is - why? Children languish and feel unloved without parents and meantime the parents languish without them. it is a lose lose situation fo reveryone - so why is the basic policy to keep families together not being applied?

Children may not have to go to Australia anymore but they are still alienated from their own families and not given the right to decide what they want in respect of that.

The REAL but dark tale of Little Red Riding Hood

The REAL but dark tale of Little Red Riding Hood | PATCH Newsletter - NO 2. Winter 2014 | Scoop.it

The Tale of Little Red Riding Hood

 

Rewritten truthfully by Melizza Moore.

 

In another little hamlet , far far away , where nobody actually knows for sure where it is, there lived an anonymous family , who were unfortunately poverty stricken . This family consisted of a woman , husband and a singular feminine child, who seemed to have no name at all . For security and legal reasons,  she is simply known as Little Red Riding Hood.

 

 

This little girls Nana made her a charming poncho made of red fabric on her trusty Singer sewing machine. She presented this poncho on her seventh birthday. One day poor Nana fell ill (possibly from influenza), the little girl was despatched,  to go out all unsupervised to visit her beloved Nana. The little girls mother prepared a basket of goodies and a bottle of "grown up juice". ( Red Wine). Little Red Riding hood had been warned from a very early age , not to be chatting with people , who looked or smelt strange in long coats with deep pockets , because they might hurt her.

 

Off trotted Little Red Riding Hood , feeling all happy , skipping gaily along the pebbled path into the forest. She remembered the warnings from her mother , of not venturing off from the course of the pathway under any circumstances. Little Red Riding Hood sang pretty little lullabies, as she skipped along . Colourful flowers loomed in front of her , so she stooped to pick up, so that she could make a fancy flower arrangement for her Nana . She placed these thieved flowers in her little matching pinny.

 

Unbeknown to Little Red Riding Hood , she had indeed unfortunately erred from the path and had in fact wandered deeper into the forest.  ( Maybe it was an enchanted path - who knows) . From out of nowhere , as if by magic , there appeared a lone figure wearing a large shiny mackintosh . It was the neighborhood wolf , who was grinning amiably at Little Red Riding Hood. Pretending to voice concern , he asked

 

"Hey little girl, "where are you going too" ?
Little Red Riding Hood replied, "I am off to cheer up my Nana , because she is very sick".
The wily wolf replied back "Is it very far, little girl ?" 
Little Red Riding Hood replied, "It is the other side of the wood , Nana is far too weak to come to the door , so I just have to walk in".

 

Now boys and girls , ladies and gentlemen , what do you think happened next ? . A wolf is just like a great big dog. So with his four legs he can get anyway very very fast. Yes that is right , the wily wolf sped off in search of a tasty snack . He figured that he would save Little Red Riding hood for later consumption. ( As a wild animal would - sneaky thing )

 

One hour later Little Red Riding Hood reached her Nana's house , she carefully lifted the latch as instructed and entered the poky little cabin. Little Red Riding Hood shouted out , "Nana , I am here to see you". The wily wolf had already gotten there , so he gobbled up the weakened stunned aged female on his arrival. He was careful to disguise himself in the bedclothes of the Nana , ever so carefully folding back his enlongated ears in the pink frilly bed hat. He took a few throaty coughs to disguise his voice , to sound like a poorly person. "Come over here , my child, come and sit on the bed and cheer me up ". As previously mentioned , the wily wolf had cross dressed himself in Nana's regalia , as well as pouring half a bottle of Oil of Olay upon his person. His furry paws were partially deposited underneath the eiderdown .

 

Little Red Riding Hood sat down upon the bed , unloading the basket of goodies beside her. A nice Genoa cake , some homemade jam . Some perfumed soap and a botlle of Lucozade . Shen then noticed that Nana was indeed suffering from Influenza , as she looked very strange indeed.

"Oh Nana what funny lumpy ears you have",  said Little Red Riding Hood"
"All the better to hear you with , my dear" replied the wily wolf
"Oh Nana , what big funny looking hands you must have ", said Little Red Riding Hood.
"All the better to hug and touch you with my dear", said the wolf
"Oh Nana , what big teeth you have , that are all manky brown" , said Little Red Riding Hood
"All the better to eat you with , my dear" said the wolf

At this moment he leapt across the bed , not resembling Nana at all,  in his agility and stealth . He knelt down and gobbled her up in one whole piece.

 

It was this moment that Little Red Riding Hoods father happened to be passing the house . He was on his way home, from his hard day of chopping wood ( for he was a self employed carpenter you know). He thought he'd pay a visit to his mother in law, to see if she was feeling any better. All sounded quiet as he neared the front door. He could not hear the sounds of the wireless or chitter chatter. He opened the front door . In his wildest nightmares , he could have never expected to see the carnage before him. There , brazen as you like , lay the wily wolf relaxing in the bed , trash all over the carpet and a blood trail worthy of NCIS crime lab photography . In a frenzy , he bound over and hacked the wily wolf into two chunks ( Murder and Dismemberment). Just as he rested his axe to start weeping , out tumbled Nana and Little Red Riding hood out of the wily wolfs belly. Joy and Rapture they were alive , but not necessarily well for their trauma . I think that might take a lifetime of therapy for that ! . The father and daughter returned home , whereupon she was grounded for many days for disobedience . But yet the wilful parents not arrested,or interrogated by any public body for the criminal offences hinted at in this epistle. I would add that they lived happily ever after ( Whatever that means in fairy tale land )

 

 

THE MORALS of this story , is don't talk to strangers , don't trust big fierce doggies , they might BITE , because they are animals , that is what they do !. Supervise your offspring . At least give them a map and a whistle if you plan to get somewhere nearby . Or tell em about stranger danger at least .

Patch Self-help's comment, August 31, 2012 1:55 PM
When I go shopping in the supermarket I see so much on offer that is so easy to buy - money permitting - but always I can take home enough for my needs.
Even then it strikes me how much we have that we take for granted. Some of the produce we buy here in the UK comes from lands where growers recieve little in return for their efforts. They have barely enough and are lucky if it is enough to survive.
So what are we going to do for them?
