Parents Deemed Homicidal

British MP John Hemming describes assessment centers for parents with a few curt but accurate words.
Monday, April 07, 2008
I visited an Assessment centre today. I don't think most people know what it is like to be in this environment.
Frankly the Assessment centres show an aspect of the system that needs to be seen to be believed. There is a form of assumption that parents are on the edge of murdering their children and are only held back by the fact that they have to phone the office every time they change a nappy.
This is a systematic problem for which the politicians and judges are equally responsible.
