In 2004, when I was six months pregnant, my lawn mowing lady raised the alarm. She began complaining about a male teacher at her children’s primary school who was reportedly abusing students.

Corporate Child Abuse: The Unseen Global Epidemic

“There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul”, Nelson Mandela says, “than the way in which it treats its children”.

Who would disagree?

Yet today children may be assaulted, diseased, or killed by pervasive corporate drugs, junk-foods and beverages, perverted by mindless violence in multiple modes, deployed as dead-end labour with no benefits, and then dumped into a corporate future of debt enslavement and meaningless work. How could this increasing systematic abuse be publicly licensed at every level?

DoCS NSW minister responsible for not looking after families in the community

I think everyone on here should email their stories of children being stolen by DoCS to today tonight.

I have spoken to DoCS ACT and they said if my case was in ACT they would not be doing what DoCS NSW is. I had a former DoCS worker from Samaritans, she was former Department of Human Services Victoria (DHS Vic) worker from Melbourne transferred to Wong DoCS and left docs NSW as she said she could not believe how DoCS NSW runs, they just remove kids instead of meeting real needs. She took a 20,000 pay cut as she could not be party to what NSW DoCS do to families.

The new Director General was a Heroin addict, a Criminal and spent years in jail for importing illegal drugs and was a drug dealer ... He now has the parental responsibility for our stolen children OMG.

His degree is in Jouralism probably where he met his friend Pru Goward so together they can spin the media against us. More research reveals that this guy was kicked out of the DG position of Education because of his criminal history which would not allow him to even be a teacher and it was decided he was a poor role model for children as head of the Education system ... so now he has been

Pregnant at 13, teen mum Caitlin Lehmann's to celebrate first Mother's Day at 15

This is a lovely story but  on a day like today, it is also a story that brings me tears and anger, it is not a jealous thing or a hateful thing, this is the way the world should be helping and supporting all mothers but I am not allowed to know my child and I am an older mother with three grown children. Why would DoCS go out of their way to destroy families, is it a certain type of person who is targeted, a certain kind of mother?

Is it a person who is unable to deal with the stress that DoCS bring into your life? What is behind the Child Protection Industry that they attack the most

Professor of Aboriginal Studies Pushing For New Stolen Generation
What about this woman, she is indigenous and says all Aboriginal kids should get taken away from their parents and communities and put into boarding schools, so they are able to become just like other Australians. She says it is not a NEW STOLEN GENERATION  but that years of self determination have failed so this is the only way to rid Aboriginal Australians of poverty and addictions. She is a Professor of Aboriginal Studies, an academic up there on the stage extolling her view for all to hear and be increasingly racist towards Australians.

How America made its children crazy

Fight Child Protection Department Corruption: 

Now we know that computers don't help children learn and that drugs don't help them concentrate, because the establishment mandarins who sold us the computers and drugs have conceded failure. In the January 29 New York Times, [1] a prominent professor of child development shows that attention-deficit-disorder drugs only harm the three million children who take them. One out of 10 American children have been diagnosed with so-called Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder and most of them have been medicated. [2]

Some months ago, the Times reported that test scores lagged in school districts

Report recommends help at school for foster children

on Sun, 05/13/2012 - 08:31

Children removed from abusive homes and placed into long-term foster care do much worse in school than other children, requiring a host of legal and educational changes to improve their lives, a state-commissioned report concludes.

The report, released Thursday, painted a stark picture for foster children, who have higher dropout rates and lower test scores, are more likely to repeat grades and are far less likely to graduate from college — only 3 percent by age 25, compared with 28 percent of nonfostered children.

Addressing problems with education can have a significant impact on the
