THE CASE IS ABOUT A MOTHER AND FATHER WITH TWO CHILDREN

The case is about a mother and father with two children, eight and three years old.

The mother abused alcohol, misused the child support grants, and neglected the children. Before the father and mother separated the children were exposed to violent behavior the mother displayed towards the father. After the separation, the mother frustrated the father’s contact with his children.

  • The social worker from Childline North West intervened and assisted both parents with parenting skills.
  • Taking responsibility to care properly for her children were specifically addressed with the mother.
  • The children received therapy to assist them to heal emotionally and to empower them. The mother started to take responsibility regarding alcohol abuse, managing the child support grant and taking proper care of the children.
  • The social worker assisted the parents to agree on a parenting plan stipulating how each parent will exercise their parental responsibilities and right in the best interest of the children.
