Failure of child care
Sir -- I have two foster sons. I am appalled, like others, at the Roscommon affair. But I am not at all surprised. I have had considerable involvement over the past 10 years or so with HSE "child care. Arrogance, ignorance and crass stupidity would best describe the characteristics of "child care" workers.
The family welfare conference on behalf of one of my foster sons was a brilliant example of the arrogance, ignorance and crass stupidity I refer to.
I sent written complaints to the HSE. I received a written acknowledgement and was advised my complaint was being forwarded to the relevant section. That section also acknowledged my complaint in writing and advised that my complaint was being forwarded for "attention" to -- guess who -- the "child care" workers I had complained about!
