The majority of child abuse cases are by parents.
so all parents are assumed guilty,
I'm afraid it all comes down to the authorities covering their bums
err on the side of caution. I wouldn't post anything untill it's all over and you get back home to honest mate.
It's a question of probabilities. Assume they're guilty because they probably are. Then when you find they're not...well no bad press.
Is that a suggestion, a comment, or an accusation?
Lad climbed out of bed and caught his legs in the bars and went straight over, legged snapped. He was 13 months.
Took to hospital, to get it sorted.
Anyway... Never been asked questions so many times. Together as parents, separately, then together, then again separately.
I was defo under more suspicion than the wife.
In and out in 4 hrs. Lad walking on cast the next day. He'd only been walking for 2 weeks lol.
They won't be looking for obvious current breaks. They're looking for old untreated breaks that suggest a pattern of ongoing physical abuse...
That was a concern that crossed my mind, also. The thing is, you're damned if you do and damned if you don't. If you have any objections then 'What are you trying to hide?'. It's a terrible situation. Stay as calm as you can OP, gently but firmly keep it remembered that it was you - the parents - who raised this concern (lest any overly enthusiastic social worker forget) and, as someone above said, it shan't do you any harm to talk to someone in the legal profession about your rights and what might happen next. All the best of luck with getting to the bottom of things, and I hope your daughter is OK.
Moral of the story don't report any injuries and never take your child to hospital, brilliant.
Not in the slightest. If your child has been injured get their butts to hospital ASAP. Their health is worth more than you being asked awkward questions.
Kids probably walked on her by mistake. Kids probably too old to be in the same room.
Itll all be fine. Just not a nice situation to be in.
They are not covering their arses....they are ensuring the safety of the child. As we know... There are some true monsters out there who look as nice as anything, they walk amongst us..
Geez just focus all your energy on getting your family home. The hospital is just doing all that they should If it looks iffy.
My wife, who spent almost 15 years in senior positions in day nurseries, just snorted when I read your reply and said 'Yeah, OK...'. Private day nurseries are companies first. The fact they make their money from paying minimum wage for someone in a blue tunic to wipe someone else's kid's nose for a few hours doesn't change that, unfortunately. She has stories that could make your hair curl.
Sorry mate. Not the nursery. Hospital/SS.
He was talking about the hospital/ss...
Don't let them do 25 X-Rays, thats rediculous.
Tell them they can do other checks etc, but that is a lot of radiation for such a small child, when everything is still in the early stages of development.
I hope I never get in this situation myself (I have a 9 month old) as my reaction would be just to start taking baseball bats to people accusing me of harming my own child.
a few awkward questions and 25 needless xrays all because they dared to question somebody else informally.
No wonder the nhs has no money.
Ah, yes in that case crack on and I agree. You didn't specify and because we were already talking about nurseries... My mistake.
I've never had much interaction with the NHS. I had Mark on my lung and they really took care of me as it shook me up a little.
Lad broke his leg and it cost me £4 in parking and 4hrs of my time... With lots of questions I knew were for the safety on my child.
Lad snorted a playmobil coin and they did soo much for him.
For me.. Very impressed with the NHS.
Cool story...they put him under for the search of the coin.... When they put him under they gave him a tablet to play on.. Mum said he was loving it until he went to sleep.
When he woke up he went crazy... 'where is the game I was just playing it!'
I'm a lazy poster.. Especially on mobile.
