Shelly DeWilde's comment, February 11, 2014 3:44 AM
I don't believe separating a child from a caring parent is beneficial to their own development, a fundamental right is a parents right to care for their children regardless of the outside context. I understand the reasoning for the 2005 act on automatically putting a child at risk if their parent is being subject to violence however shouldn't it apply to both of them? Unless I am missing something in this article. If the state were to remove the child would their situation actually improve and in changing their environment so drastically provide them with positive stability and support? The state is assuming a lot of responsibility making me unsure of its success. In the ending of the article Crime Prevention Minister Norman Baker wrote that they weren't cutting domestic violence, does that mean that are allocating larger resources for only those extreme cases causing a neglected party? How is the increase in financial support being used?
