Apologies for the delay in replying, the reasons for her safety and well-being have been fought endlessly through the Courts and with Social Services.
Whereas I set boundaries and certain ground rules, my ex-husband has none.
He allows her out late, and even all night on some occasions, roaming the streets, drinking alcohol. She self harms is abused by her boyfriend, yet none of this was picked up by Social Services, or, they accepted this as being normal teenage stuff!
My ex-husband has manipulated Social Services and my granddaughter to such an extent that she and Social Services are convinced that it is I that has been emotionally abusing her due to the fact that I set certain boundaries.
In the final report Social Services have twisted everything around to suit themselves so that the problem will go away. As a result, their report states that I am the one emotionally abusing my granddaughter.
I find this very upsetting and derogatory to my character, to which I would prefer a legal representative with some clout, to challenge this report and subsequently provide a greater degree of safety for my granddaughter. I cannot fight the system any more on my own
