If you live in Fermanagh go along to this site by clicking on the logo, you can see what social services mean by assessment of need in your community. Apparantly breastfeeding has a lot to do with how your child will turn out.
Copied from thier Adult Free Zone. OK I accept that they are trying to tell kids thier rights but most of the kids they come into contact with will NOT have INTERNET Access so I suggest they spend the Tax Payers Millions on a format that is more available.
Adult Free Zone
Do you know your rights?
All children, from birth to 18 years have:
the right to life;
the right to a name and nationality;
the right to be with their parents or those who will care for them best;
the right to have a say about things that affect them;
the right to have ideas and say what they think;
the right to practice their religion;
the right to meet with other children;
the right to get information they need;
the right to special care, education and training, if needed;
the right to health care;
the right to enough food and clean water;
the right to free education;
the right to play;
the right to speak their own language;
the right to learn about and enjoy their own culture;
the right not to be used as a cheap worker;
the right not to be hurt or neglected;
the right not to be used as a soldier in wars;
the right to be protected from danger;
the right to know about their rights and responsibilities.
These people do not live in the real world. As Parents many PSNI officers face teens in our streets who KNOW all thier rights and use them to justify thier behaviors against society. Today in this year of 2007 Children dominate parents in the home because The Government decided to stop parents disciplining thier children, made all outside bodies responsible for reporting to social services any bad behavior then decide these children are "at risk".
