7 8 12 14 I currently have custody of the children the report did not represent the real situation for example
both Jessica and lilly may confirmed to me that they were aware as to why they had been asked to come in and talk with me and as this part of the descusion progressed it became very apparent that the children had perhaps been privy to conversations which had taken place with possibly adult members of the family regarding the present situation this was evidenced by lilly may telling me that mummy was playing a dangerous game and also that she was playing with our heads when these comments were explored with her in more detail it became obvious that lilly may did not actually understand what she had in fact said - neither did Jessie
Jessie went on to tell me that Christine had told them to choose mummy.
both girls emphasised to me that they were not happy spending time with mum at here present accommodation but both confirmed that they would want to stay with mum at the weekends if she were to move and also if she promised them that she would not go out and leave them with a baby sitter when they stayed over with her
The problem I have with this section of the report is centred strongly on a conversation between carless adults but seems to by pass the fact that
a-somebody was actively trying to influence the children as to where they wanted to stay
b- there were know questions asked or answers shown as to why the children did not want to stay with there mother at her present address.
c-why did the children not get asked questions as to why mum had to promise that mum would not leave them with a baby sitter
also the children had to score from 1-10 which parent they wanted to be with why was this not shown in the report
