Reports of a woman neglecting her 4 children in an Ainslie residence have her facing Court thismorning. Details are provided by ACT Police media here, the Canberra Times here and News.com here.
ACT Police attended the residence re reports she had breached a protection order and found the children living in squalor.
Reports state ACT care and protection attempted to remove the children back in 2005 and were denied by the Courts. They had since been checking in on them. The Crimes also reports of a simliar incident in SA.
One wonders if the incident of the twins dying in QLD will prompt the Courts to take action sooner in relation to neglect of small children.
Where is the best place for children as parents are deemed the best option although in severly dysfunctional households this is clearly not in the best interests of the child and foster care has a bad rep aswell. discuss
