A mother has had her son taken from her care after a social worker claimed that allowing him to sit in an Bob the Builder toy car was inappropriate for his age.

The social worker reportedly said that she had become worried about the woman’s ‘basic parenting skills’ and her ‘insight’ after observing her interact with the one-year-old over a period.

The private family court hearing is said to have been told that all professionals involved were concerned about the woman’s ‘lack of insight’.

The judge was reportedly told the social worker was concerned that the woman didn’t feed her son properly and hadn’t changed his nappy in a normal way.

The boy was put in the care of relatives. The mother is allowed to stay in contact.

The judge said the social worker watched the woman ‘spend about an hour holding the boy who was sitting in the Bob the Builder car’. The social worker thought the child was in danger of falling if his mother lost control of him.

The judge is reported to have said  in her ruling that concerns included not feeding the boy  in an appropriate position, not changing his nappy in the right way and placing the nappy changing mat close to a metal table leg.

  1. Scandal

    FBI Agents along with State Authorities need to break into state law family courts and review the documents. More and more and more these agencies are supporting a system they are not supporting the children this is a clear indication that Family Court watchers should be in our court rooms and these agencies along with Family Courts need authorities like Chief Justices to review the work of the lower courts and agencies associated with the welfare of children.

  2. The children are winning and Congress is enforcing that our Family Court system puts the children first and the relationship drama second. Family Courts have repeatedly ignored child abuse and claims of domestic violence and on Sept 25 2018 victims of family violence had a win, the U.S House of Representatives passed a concurrent resolution urging state courts to determine family violence claims and risk to children before considering other “best interest” factors.

    In addition to Congress the American Psychological Association has joined in and created a submission portal to facilitate professional and community input on issues related to high conflict family relationships. The APA has received so many complaints relating to court appointed psychologist and have recognized they need to take action where children are involved, mainly eliminate bias and rely more on scientific data. It is well known by the APA and Congress that the Family Court System has “ethical” issues and no resources when domestic violence is alleged.

    This is a major step forward for child safety in our Family Courts that will help lead to protection and more needed changes from funding to state law and adherence of laws.
