Had to have a little think about this Steve simple because the powers to be have gone well over the top and too PC. Child Services, it’s called CYF in NZ should be for the safety and interest of the child & the family. Common sense doesn’t come into it they seem to want complete control over everything & will not even liaison with other departments, Police or Family members who probably know more of the family history or situation than they do & could help. Sadly because of this a lot of families are suffering & in the worst cases Children are dying, sadly our family as suffered because of this.
Regarding a clip round the ear it never done me any harm. No one should condone the beating of anyone let alone of a Child but a slap on the leg or arm, come on.
Now it’s go to your room & the Kids say great, away from the parents I can watch Telly, play my Computer games & even talk to my friends on the phone & Text, this is really a smashing punishment I should do this more often.
Have I become like the kids of today? Regarding the computer, yes but you can blame Lefora for that,
now it’s like playing catch-up but then you would not do it if you did not enjoy it. Luckily, we have people like yourself, Joe (Fosney) & I’ll include myself in that, who believe that the old Bermondsey & areas we love should be kept, stored & remembered. For myself I’m proud that I came from Bermondsey that’s were my roots are & I will never forget that.
Now what was the QUESTION? Cheers Ray (Kiwi)
