Well, well, well! So, foster parents are not happy either!
One of the foremost journals in Norway, Aftenposten, had conducted interviews with Barnevernet officers and foster parents. While protecting their identity for very good reasons (Barnevernet has long hands, a sharp memory and lots of resources), the journalist describes how CPS works, as seen with the eyes of an insider.
I’m just giving you – in my own words – an idea about the content of the article.
First, even though I consider most of them as mercenaries of the system, I would grant some foster parents the ability to bond, relate to and care for a child. Complaining that many children are traumatized when placed in their care (really!), foster parents do not get additional help from Barnevernet (such as psychological evaluation and psychiatric help) but are left on their own to manage the situation. If things don’t go well, the next step would be to summarily remove the children from foster parents and place them in institutions. Thus, they complain, foster parents are treated like robots without feelings and preventing them from ever contacting those children and even know anything about them.
Moreover, if foster parents want to complain about management, Barnevernet can exclude them from the system, without any recourse, thus losing their source of income. Therefore, most would put up with abuse, incompetence and mismanagement.
Now, of course, my full sympathy is with the biological parents. But this proves how set on its goals Barnevernet is, without any scruples or consideration for humanity!
As very well funded as they are, Barnevernet lacks the tools necessary to evaluate and help children and families! What they don’t lack is the appetite to take more and more children, destroy families and as far as it is concerned, grow.
It is time to end it as we know it!
