Default Battle of Ideas: 'Cinderella Law’: Criminalising parental authority?

Stuart Waiton, Dee Thomas and Daniel Monk on the panel at the Battle of Ideas on 'Cinderella Law’: Criminalising parental authority?

Quote:
In this phenomenal discussion filmed at the Battle of Ideas, speakers provide a revealing and often shocking overview of the consequences of intervention in family life. From the ‘Named person’ act in Scotland to the criminalisation of alleged ‘emotional abuse’ of children, even raised voices or harsh looks can put parents in the dock. Does this create a situation where no one can exercise control over their own children? Are children being encouraged to interpret every criticism and hurtful remark made by their mum or dad as abusive?

Alice has blogged about the The Better Start experiment whose sinister agenda Dee Thomas has been actively exposing.

Quote:
"Dee also discovered an adaptation of Evidence2Success project is now extended into England in areas of poverty under the BIG Lottery Better Start project and she is challenging BIG to explain their stated plans to fund epigenetic testing (Buccal swabs /hair cuttings from small babies) only in areas of multiple deprivation. Dee feels ethically the "science" behind epigenetic testing is in itself very new, complex and unproven, that future implications of testing are as yet unknown and that asking young, often vulnerable pregnant women for consent to test their babies poses serious issues relating to the obtaining of freely given fully informed consent."
Quote:
So Better Start are looking to build up the evidence base to back up the early interventionist approach. People need to know that the Big Lottery Fund is being used for a giant social experiment which has severe consequences for the targeted population, many of whom are being set up to lose their children.

They go on: "Better Start have appointed the Social Research Unit at Dartington to support their (project)." This is the same organisation which the Scottish government commissioned for their surveys. Small world, isn`t it ?
