In Nanny's world she doesn't speak English, she uses a mangled mix of bullshit "management speak" and political/socialist double speak when communicating.
1 She is stupid.
2 She doesn't want people to understand what she is talking about, so she tries to be clever.
3 Her arguments wouldn't stand up to rigorous intellectual scrutiny if they were presented in English.
Such is the case for her stand wrt "behaviour management".
What pray tell is "behaviour management"?
In English, it is called smacking/chastising children when they behave like little shits.
David and Heather Bowen from Taunton have found to their cost that Nanny does not approve of "behaviour management".
The Bowens are foster parents who have been banned by Nanny from fostering, after they refused to stop smacking their natural child.
Nanny's adoption panel asked the Bowens to reconsider using physical discipline towards their daughter Emma, aged nine.
They refused, and have been blacklisted (that's a non word too these days isn't it?) over their "behaviour management".
Mr Bowen said:
"I am a parent governor at a local school, my wife works for the school parent teacher association, has been a special needs careers advisor and now works in the school. We both assist with children's work at our local church.
Based on the evidence presented to the council, we cannot understand why we are unsuitable and it seems that we have been excluded on the basis that we physically chastise our birth child, in accordance with our beliefs and UK law."
Linda Barnett, head of children's services at Somerset County Council, said:
"In assessing parents' suitability for fostering we take into account a range of factors which we gather from extensive assessment and discussion with the potential carers.
In common with most other local authorities, Somerset has a foster carer's agreement which describes our belief about parenting.
Where carers have a very strong personal belief that differs from the foster carer agreement, it is potentially unfair to expect them to operate to a set of guidelines which conflicts with this.
Mr and Mrs Bowen have lodged an appeal and we are in discussion with them about the hearing of that appeal."
It's not for the state to dictate to people what beliefs they may hold.
Little wonder that there is a shortage of good foster homes, if Nanny is so fussy about only hiring those with socio political beliefs that match her own.
Little wonder that "yoof" is so disaffected these days, as it needs boundaries. Nanny keeps removing the boundaries, what are kids and parents meant to do?
Could Nanny answer that please?
