Comment on ‘Out of home care’ system broken, Royal Commission told by Bev Emmott.

I agree with John that the responsibility for the children lies with the parents – no matter how well or badly off they are.
Teaching by example is important, to put the kids first and then slowly let them go as they grow up.
If they live with the example of beatings, neglect, alcoholism they are likely to repeat it. Also if they live with arrogance, over indulgence and are watching the adults treat others like dirt they will repeat it.
However if the live with an example of honesty and self respect in a stable family environment then that gives them the best start in life.
On top of that they need from the start to be slowly taught to look after themselves and find out if they do wrong there are very definite consequences.
The idea that kids are taken from their families should be only in extreme circumstances and they should definitely be put in a safe environment – not like the one they came from.
