Tell it like it is.

Not a day goes by when I am not asked this question,

Why doesn’t someone do something about, the abuse caused to millions of children, as a result of denying contact, by a family member.

Why indeed.

For over fourteen years now, we have been campaigning as have many other groups, to no avail.

Oh, we get the standard letter responses from government, saying how important the relationship between  grandchildren and grandparents are, during the last 15 months it has been constantly raised as an issue during the pandemic. Of course the grandparents we support wont come out of lockdown. Their living  bereavement goes on.

The difference as we all know is that the grandchildren who have been kept away from their grandparents because of a deadly virus, I would suggest that denying contact is in it self a deadly virus.

Like a virus it is invisible to many, because they don’t catch it. To those who do it is life changing and sometimes leads to death.

So to get back to the question.

As I have written so many times before, it is radical feminists who are blocking any change or acknowledgement.

This band of powerful, lobbying women will never allow us, to even have a conversation.

The government wont rock the boat, for fear of being accused of discrimination.

The radical feminists who hide behind equality, in fact don’t believe in equality at all, everything for them is gender based.

To them all men are bad, and it is only men who abuse women.

It is of course not true, women can abuse men as well, and I have to say some of the most violent/aggressive people I have met are women.

If they believed in true equality they would acknowledge the fact that abuse is not gender based. They would also acknowledge the damage caused by denying contact, to a parent or grandparent.

This belief continues within the family breakdown scenario.

No minster within government will challenge them, because of fear.

Denying contact is a child protection issue, if we said that two million children were suffering abuse, there would be a national outcry, there would be investigations, someone would be held accountable.

Even organisations that purport to protect children, refuse to accept that denying contact is abuse of children.

Due to this being a family breakdown issue, no one will get involved, and so children are left suffering.

It is a national and international disgrace.
