"A social worker has come under fire from a High Court judge after she took a young boy away from its mother, as she claimed she wasn't meeting his emotional needs.
The mother was accused of "not taken him out for an ice cream" and not getting his hair to be cut "in the way that he liked" in a 44-page document written by the social worker.

But today a judge ruled the mother and son can be reunited.
The local authority's evidence in opposition to the mother's application was contained in an extremely long, 44-page, witness statement made by the social worker," said the judge, who is based in the Family Division of the High Court in London.
"This witness statement was very long on rhetoric and generalised criticism but very short indeed on any concrete examples of where and how the mother's parenting had been deficient.
"Indeed, it was very hard to pin down within the swathes of text what exactly was being said against the mother."
He said the social worker had been asked to "identify her best example" of the mother "failing" to meet the boy's "emotional needs".
"Her response was that until prompted by the local authority mother had not spent sufficient one-to-one time with (the boy) and had failed on one occasion to take him out for an ice cream," said the judge.
"This struck me as utterly insubstantial criticism."

He added: "A further criticism in this vein was that the mother had failed to arrange for hair to be cut in the way that he liked.
"Again, this is obviously inconsequential."


Social workers....don't you love em? Rolling Eyes

Yes its hard to forgive those being horrible, but she is your family.

I doubt you took time to understand how it effected your sis

It clearly did and why only after she acted out

You were not to know, but you should have been there for each other. Instead, it seems you blamed each other. When your dad was the cock. Its allowed you to lose your sister. If i was you, I would do anything to rebuild that relationship with her.

Its hard to be there for someone who gets pleasure in beating you up every opportunity they get Didge.  Wink This carried on for years till I was old enough for her to realise that even a placid kid can give back as good as they get under duress....and its one of the reasons I cant tolerate bullies now.


Thanks for your advice, but tbh my sister doesn't figure in my life at all. Just because people are related does'nt mean that they have to be close, sometimes its better to cut ties....which I did many years ago.
I never think about her unless the subject is brought up, and I'm sure she feels the same about me.
So alls well. x


Sorry, but that is a shame

You do not have to be close but understand.

It seems to me you have never have, with your sister

Not knocking either

To think thus so to not think about her, to me is appalling, as she is your sister. No matter what she has done, she is your sister
