Statistics On Teenage Depression?
Q: During pregnancy a medical person, typically a GP or obstetrician,
reviews the medical notes of the mother, and finds `indicants' of
future problems, such as depression, teenage self-harm, or personality
disorder (notably borderline), or having about three or more children,
especially if close in age.
A:The initial hearing results in the appointment of several expert psychiatric or psychological witnesses, each with their own eccentric pet theories. They argue in court and outside, leading to further hearings and extra experts. After five years the psychiatric model is eventually arrived at and configured vaguely to fit the particular case, and will consist of one or more of the following factors: (i) the mother suffers from depression, anxiety, or borderline, and makes false allegations against the father (ii) the father suffers from anti-social personality disorder, obsessive compulsive personality disorder (iii) the grandparents had a history of eccentric behaviour and abused one or both parents in the 1960s. All this is based on evidence of the parents' behaviour after the removal of the children, or previously confidential medical or social records. Social Services will either assert that `the abuser becomes the abuser', even though there is no evidence of abuse, or will assert their statutory right to maintain targets for adoptions (especially same sex parents). The `target argument' DOES take place in court. We have more and more children coming from broken homes, single mothers and so on. Why of all groups, is the government apparently acting as an agent to disintegrate families? Note: "no immediate risk to your child from yourselves" Because there is a huge demand from couples who cannot conceive, including same-sex couples, for healthy white pretty babies. It is far far easier for social services to do harvest children from broken homes than those with intact co-habitting or married couples. This is even more likely if the single parent is a father, both parents have limited education or presentational skills. The former will merely attract spun statistics on paternal child abuse. The latter will simply fail to present a defence and will give in or crack up. Also would-be adopters are unlikely to want
