Look what's happenin now in the world, children's rights are above all others rights. And under the specious pretext of such rights protection, children will be unhamperedly taken away.
All laws are based on the concepts that can be interpreted on their own way: well-being of a family, risks, if child is in the danger. Look reason for taken a child away may be based on low-income of parents, severe disease of parents, cramped living conditions, having many children, bad habits etc.
Can be absence of iPhone owned by a child counted as a problem? And who are the bad parents? Who live with children in two- or five-room apartment? Who can decide it?
I believe that the child can be taken away from the family only according to court's decision and only if the harm to the interests of the child can not be avoided by other means, and help that was given to child and parents did not give any results.
Child protection laws forbid the bad attitude toward the child, including physical punishment. Nevertheless, in certain cases, restrictions of the movement of the child and his actions is necessary to protect himself of herself from the threat. To do this, the parent is given the right to use physical force in a small amount, which does not cause a child physical, mental and emotional trauma and if possible, not strongly violates his rights and freedoms.
For example a child does not listen to adult and wants to run out into the roadway, of course, that an adult would intervene and use force in order to keep the child. And how it can be done other way? What is meant here is seconds to save a child.
And most importantly, that the law doesn’t protect non needy family when pre conceived social worker based on false information, may put the integrity of the family at risk. But human element is one of the most important factor.
Yes, we have to try to avoid human element as much as possible. Too many extremely important things depend on it. People's live depend on it. So it's impossible to risk such things as children happiness and strong family because of bad mood of governmental authorizes. Everything has to be double checked, every decision. And if any avoidance or suspect of prejudicial treatment occurs, such official has to be immediately pushed aside form his or her case. We all know that very often people with whip hand start using it with exceeding of the limits of authority. So in this case only trustful, tested persons can work with children and take any decisions. But this is so hard to do. So the selection of personnel must be very strong and thoughtful. And maybe this will help a little bit in such situation and will limit in the future as much as possible such terrible cases like case with Pokrovksiy's family from happening.
I hope that Pokrovksiy's children will be return home very soon and all guilty people will be punished, and will never be able to hold such position again.
