The territory of children and parents is sacred. It is not a commodity to be tampered with, nor should the role of Shared Parenting ever be discredited nor devalued by outside interference of any sort.
If the parents have irreconcilable differences, the objective should be set to determine what is best for the child's happiness and safety, without the need for Gestapo-like measures of a punitive nature which merely serve to muddy the waters, and compound the difficulties by becoming a part of the problem.
The Rule of Law, by its very nature of being Principle-governed, precludes any State
interference tampering with the rights of parents and their children.. It is not any
business of the State, in every sense of the word 'business', yet heinously, these sacred
rights have been distorted, exploited, abused, and tampered with by the State turning their focus on this area AS a 'business' - to engage in brazen child-trafficking whilst couching it in "acceptable terminology" like "Care Orders" and "Child welfare" when the opposite is true, and generating inhumane profits for corporations at the unthinkable cost to both child and its parents.
Where the parents are alive and capable, children need parenting, not fostering, and even better, shared parenting, to allow them to develop in a way that is balanced between the male and female energies and learning processes.
Also, to allow them to flourish in a safe and loving environment where learning and true caring (which can only be sensibly administered by the parents themselves), can take place without the threat of nonsensical 'care orders' which - nine times out of ten - are entirely unnecessary and best avoided at ALL costs, because they crush the child's confidence and sense of safety, reducing matters to a mindless tug-of-war and disrobing parental rights: the ultimate way to undermine a Society.
It is time to wake up and embrace our parental responsibility and to take our power back from those who would reduce this vitally important role to its lowest denominator: turning it into another "business" which sacrifices the happiness and welfare of the child, which would always be best served by those who genuinely have the child's best interests at heart: the parents themselves. Children are our future, and our Society can learn from them and our evolution depends on them: so their happiness and safety, best taught by both mother and father's balanced energies, must take precedence.
