Parents who emotionally abuse their children could soon face up to 10 years in jail

Emotional abuse to a child will now become law which can or may carry a sentence of up to ten years in prison included in the new law is that if families or carers do not show a child love and affection this will also become a crime of an emotional abuse with a prison sentence

Social workers on allegations against families of emotional abuse or future emotional abuse will now have more powers to take children into care on allegations of no love and affection, perhaps the governments have made a deal with the prison service to fill up the prisons so that they will have more cheap labour for the out side companies such as Woolworth’s use to have all of their garden furniture made in Pentonville Prison, and what the public are not aware of is PRINDUS (the prison industry) Burton’s suites were also made by the prisons and via PRINDUS the governments make megabucks from the prisoners who are cheap labour then last year in the news QC Alan Goldsack made a statement that all prisoner’s children should be put into the care system “In a child’s best interest” so lets question what is really going on?

The research undertaken by the charity has had many reports from families from all over the country with regards to contact with their children with being told by the social workers of what they are allowed to do and say when they have contact with their children, with many families who have first had to sign a contract before contact with all contracts written up by the social workers to say
YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SHOW ANY AFFECTION EMOTIONS OR LOVE AND NO TEARS as this is an embarrassment to the child and that the child is to old for affections, but we the social workers will allow you one hug on entering or leaving a contact room and should you not comply with the contract then your contact will be stopped immediately. and so the families are damned if they do and damned if they don’t

Who ever has given the powers to the social workers to enforce their own laws upon a Nation are guilty in the eyes of the law and until such time social workers are brought to account by the laws of the land no child will have any rights to their families with the loss of every child’s human rights, if no one in power will bring the social workers to account then it must be the people of the Nation who will have to rise up to protect the children.

Parents who emotionally abuse their children could soon face up to 10 years in jail.

New proposals would make anything that intentionally harmed a child’s “physical intellectual, emotional, social or behavioural development” a criminal offence.

Parents who emotionally abuse their children could face prosecution for the first time under a new “Cinderella Law”.

Starving offspring of love and affection could lead to up to 10 years in prison in a move to be unveiled in the Queen’s Speech in early June.

Currently, the law on child neglect, which affects as many as one in ten children, covers physical harm only.

Under the new proposals, anything that intentionally harmed a child’s “physical intellectual, emotional, social or behavioural development” would be a crime.

Offences could include deliberately ignoring a child, damaging their emotional growth by not showing them any love and forcing them to see domestic violence.

Police would be able to intervene earlier before children suffer physical or sexual abuse, it is hoped.

The charity Action for Children said reform of “Victorian” child neglect laws “will change lives”.

Sir Tony Hawkhead, the charity’s chief executive, said: “I’ve met children who have been scapegoated in their families, constantly humiliated and made to feel unloved.

“The impact is devastating and can lead to lifelong mental health problems and, in some cases, suicide.

“We are one of the last countries in the West to recognise all forms of child abuse as a crime.”

The campaign was spearheaded by MPs across the political spectrum, including the late Labour MP Paul Goggins as well as the Lib Dems’ Mark Williams.

Tory MP Robert Buckland, who is a part-time judge, also believes “the time for change is long overdue”.

He said: “Not too many years after the Brothers Grimm popularised the story of Cinderella, the offence of child neglect was introduced.

“Our criminal law has never reflected the full range of emotional suffering experienced by children who are abused by their parents or carers.

“The sad truth is that, until now, the Wicked Stepmother would have got away scot-free.”

Damian Green, minister for police and criminal justice, began gathering evidence to support the change last Autumn.

A department spokesman said: “The Government believes protecting children from harm is fundamental and that child cruelty is an abhorrent crime which should be punished.

“Every child should be able to grow up in a safe environment.

“We are considering ways the law can support this.”
