RE: Barnevernet - the Norwegian Child Protection Service - and it's (possibly) biggest problem

Hello! As already stated, I am digging through your valuable publications.

Concerning Barnevernet, CPS, or call it Jugendamt, or even Police, I don't think there is a problem with guidelines or supervision. I see the problem in budgets and budget sources. Whenever action and its funding is based on deception or violence (and this includes structural violence for being highly deceptive for everyone involved) we can expect the worst results at the highest price. That's a bold statement, I know: We can expect this! So expecting something opposite is insanity by definition.

The term "child protection" alone already contains enormous potential for structural violence. This is a complex issue around the topics of intervention and responsibility. For whose responsibility is child protection? A child - and here we mean a young human being - can already reject an intervention at a very early age with a small gesture, without having already learned to speak or walk. But often young humans (let alone animals and plants) are already spoon-fed with intervention. With this, it takes some time to recognize the beginnings and to refrain from intervention where it is obstructive. And then obstructive to who? Especially when it comes to financing.
