We ought to think that we are one of the leaves of a tree, and the tree is all humanity. We cannot live without the others, without the tree.” – Pablo Casals

me2013 Racism” is about a lack of knowledge and understanding, about a particular culture, or a group of people, and the person/s are happy with their lack of knowledge and understanding. It mainly has to do about power over a particular group of people. This, of course leads to “ignorance”. “Racism” is about “ignorance“.

That stated it is not that they do not know the rules.  These arrogant  people think it does not apply to them and play the tune that they are: confused, mistaken or unclear when helping each other cover-up their mistakes. What should be happening is that the confused, mistaken or unclear public official should retire and not before their bad practices are brought to light within the public domainContinue reading

Foster Care

Foster Care

Foster care is the term used for a system in which a minor who has been made a ward is placed in the private home of a state certified caregiver referred to as a “foster parent”.  The state via the family court and child protection agency stand in loco parentis to the minor, making all legal decisions while the foster parent is responsible for the day to day care of said minor. The foster parent is remunerated by the state for their services.  Foster care is intended to be a short term situation until a permanent placement can be made:

  • Reunification with the biological parent(s)
  • When it is deemed in the child’s best interest. This is generally the first choice.
  • Preferably by a biological family member such as an aunt or grandparent.
  • If no biological family member is willing or able to adopt, the next preference is for the child to be adopted by the foster parents or by someone else involved in the child’s life (such as a teacher orcoach). This is to maintain continuity in the child’s life ~ Wikipedia

Power of attorney: how flawed system cost one family £30,000 – Telegraph

Rules granting other people control over your money when you are elderly or infirm are open to abuse. We highlight one sobering case


With Britain’s population ageing fast and greater numbers of people unable to control their finances unassisted, a record 250,000 powers of attorney are being registered each year. The attorney system enables family members and others to take legitimate control of someone else’s affairs.


The relevant government authority – the Office of the Public Guardian – is struggling to keep pace, and registrations of new attorneys currently take more than three months to process. A spokesman told the Telegraph’s Your Money it was “recruiting additional staff” and the processing period would “shortly” be reduced to eight weeks.


The increase in numbers of attorneys is resulting in more disputes among families. The will, trust and estate division of national law firm Irwin Mitchell, for instance, has experienced a 75pc increase in attorney-related disputes in 12 months. And at the Financial Ombudsman Service, which arbitrates disputes between individuals and finance firms, new complaints concerning powers of attorney are up by 40pc since the beginning of 2013 and running at 35 a month.

Angelina Jolie’s Children to Appear in Cleopatra

Angelina Jolie has landed roles for all six of her children in ‘Cleopatra.


The actress and her fiancé Brad Pitt have previously said they didn’t want their brood – Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, eight, and five-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox – to follow them into acting, but it appears they may have changed their mind after they all appeared on set together ready to film.


A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “Their whole family life is rooted in films but Brad and Ange didn’t want the children to follow in their footsteps. However, acting is in their genes, and it could turn out to be the start of something big for the next generation.”

Termination of Parental Rights


Children from low-income households are more likely than children from middle and high-income households to be reported to child protective service agencies. Low-income children are disproportionately reported to child protective service agencies, which results in a disparate impact on racial or ethnic minorities being reported. The large number of low-income parents reported for child abuse and neglect results in the unfortunate separation of many low-income and minority families, making both children and parents victims of the Unites States’ child welfare system.

Being that low-income parents are accused of child neglect at a higher rate than parents of other income levels, it is both unjust and unrealistic to require parents who often cannot afford basic necessities, to hire legal counsel. While all parents regardless of their socioeconomic status have the constitutional right to due process, those who can’t afford it are at a greater risk of losing their children which impedes on their right and is unethical. Not only is a low-income parent likely to lack the financial means to secure legal representation but they are also likely to lack the necessary training to understand all of the important legal terms and issues involved during the proceedings which gives them a disadvantage.

Originally posted on Forensic Social Work Justice/Action Forum:

Family is described as a basic social unit consisting of parents and their children and is the cornerstone of our democratic society.  While it is not specifically mentioned in the Constitution, the family has long been given constitutional protection and family members have been held to enjoy rights of privacy and association.  Despite these constitutional rights, certain compelling circumstances, such as child abuse and neglect, allow the state to intervene between the parent and child (Sigmond, 1980).

The House Ways and Means Committee of the Administration on Children, Youth, and Families reported in the 80s, the number of children in foster care began to increase, while the number of children who were adopted from foster care remained static.  Most children who enter foster care eventually return to their families, but concern developed in the 90s about the growing number of children who did not return home and were remaining in…

Mom Jailed For Dropping Off Her 9 Year Old At Local Playground While She Worked (the story sparks spirited debate online)

You are a working mom who has a 9 year old daughter. You can’t find someone to watch her and you can’t afford daycare. What do you do?


For 46 year old Debra Lynn Harrell from North Augusta, South Carolina, she took the only option she felt was available to her. She occasionally dropped off her daughter at a local playground, for hours, while she worked her shift at a nearby McDonald.


Now she’s under arrest and is being charged with unlawful neglect of a child; a class E felony. She has lost custody of the minor to the Department of Social services.


According to Business Insider Harrell’s daughter initially played with a laptop at the McDonald while her mother worked. But after the laptop got stolen Harrell agreed to her daughter’s request to drop her off at the park playground, where she typically played with other  kids her age, with a cell phone.


But three days after the arrangement an adult asked her were her parent(s) where and her responds prompted a call to the police. The rest is history.
