Family controllers by Step up 4 Children’s Rights·Wednesday, 6 June 2018

Gro Hillestad Thune, a Norwegian lawyer by profession, was a member of the European Commission of Human Rights for 17 years. She is regarded as Norway’s leading expert on human rights, and her name is recognized internationally.

Gro Hillestad Thune, in her article last week, “The child welfare services have become family controllers”, explains that the concern messages that child welfare services receive are often very trivial, and although Norway’s CWS can help people who need help, in many cases, they create more problems than they solve.
According to Thune, the notes that employees make in the pre-schools are very often inadequate and full of errors, that give a totally wrong picture of the child’s situation. They are simply not educated enough to question and ask children about the home care situation.
“A message of concern from pre-school provides an access card to a family. The child welfare services can call them, visit them and demand that they come to the office. They can talk to children and parents separately. They have free passes into family life.
The “interrogations” are often initiated with a number of leading questions, and the children feel compelled to answer something to satisfy the caregivers in the pre-school, and then the imagination is fuelled. Often, what the children are talking about is also misinterpreted. It can have disastrous consequences for the child and the family,” says Gro Hillestad Thune.

Save Tyler from Barnevernet Monster

When the five little ones of a Romanian father and Norwegian mother were seized by Norway ‘s infamous Barnevernet, thousands protested at embassies around the world, and a delegation from the Parliament of Romania went to Norway.

When a baby was wrenched from the arms of her Slovakian mother and Norwegian father, “the Slovak republic . . . intervened in the case and asked the Norwegian court to admit Slovakia as an independent party of the litigation …”

One case involving a Czech family in Norway . . . led to a major diplomatic row between Norway and the Czech Republic. Czech President Milos Zeman accused Norwegian social workers of acting like Nazis.”

When an Indian child was seized, the Prime Minister of India intervened.

BUT WHEN  an American mother and Norwegian father have their nursing baby seized? Amy’s pleas to the Obama government fell on deaf ears. Can we get help for her NOW???

Can we expect Americans to stand up and speak out and hold a candle to the rest of the world?

Call your members of Congress. (It’s not hard to do if you have a pulse.) Ask your church for prayers for Amy and Kevin and their son.
