09 Episode 09 Norman Weistuch Ph.D. talks about CPS and other Government failures. These are issues discussed in his book titled, A Kid From The Bronx.
Powerful quotes From Dr. Weistuch’s book relevant to this week’s Podcast.
Pg. 40 “Part of this resistance is repeated experiences with Child Protective Services which is out to monitor and not assist the people they are responsible for.”
Pg. 88 “they (Child Protective Services) have caused further delay in reunification (between parents and children) or worse, created a paper trail to bolster a request to terminate parental rights for parents whose identified needs were simply incorrect.”
Pg. 91 – “Kids are often more traumatized by the placement process and the belief that their parents don’t love them than the process could be if the child had remained at home with effective services.”
