Re: Dads in Distress and sacred cows of Australia!
As much as I understand 'for the sake of the children' we should all band behind children's rights, I'm sick of it already. Australia has now made it mandatory to dob in parents else a $5,000 to $20,000 dollar fine.
From my personal studies of child protection (done cause I'm up against those who study as child protection agents) it seems fathers are caught up in all this because they have been placed in giving discipline.
Besides Australia's social workers giving the formula for risk assessment that is used around the world, New Zealand added do it's evolution "Three Houses" where children place parents and situations as either good, bad, or different. Bad is daddy for handing down a punishment for children fear the punishment - it can be mummy too but studies show it to be a daddy thing, so children are asked immediately, "How does daddy make you feel when.....?" Thus it's in the best interest of children to have daddy's supervised when around children.
