Alternative health ‘practitioners’ need to be banned from treating children.

I am a child advocate. I advocate for the right and needs of children, to be treated appropriately and with respect.

This includes all their health needs.

Far too many of these alternative health people, who are not registered, are not doctors, are harming children.

Parents are often not discerning enough and need to realise, they are not front line health providers, even though many pretend to be.

I believe there needs to be a complete legal ban, on all alternative health providers, treating children.

Adults can do as they wish to themselves, but children need to be protected under law. Because all too often parents fail to provide appropriately. Continue reading

When not ‘fitting in’, is a really wise place to be.

The church as a whole, has a long history of acting abusively, inappropriately, lying, being devious, dealing with issues in house and failing to protect children. I’m not ignoring this, like so many choose.

I’ve come to realise today…….. I cannot and should not, put my trust in an institution with this background, knowing these issues continue on and so many church people make excuses and justify, rationalize and basically are very unsafe and dangerous people to be around.

So, I’m not even going to try. I’m not going to even entertain the possibility of trusting any of them.

The church I go to, has the children’s ministry – where I can see them at all times. The toilets are single toilets, so no predators can be hanging out in the toilets.

So as long as we are in these areas, where I can monitor and see my children at all times, ‘I’ know they are safe.

I don’t have to talk to any of them. I don’t have to socialise with them. Just turn up at the time the service starts, leave when the service ends. And that’s it.

I don’t trust the minister will be truthful, so why even bother asking her anything.

I don’t trust my church going counsellor is truthful with me about these issues, so why bother even trying. The church she goes to doesn’t even allow female elders. That’s how disordered and right wing they are. There’s red flags, right there.

Trust is a huge issue to me. And why would I bother assuming I can trust people, who have a deep history of such unwise, opinions & actions, dishonesty, dealing with things in-house and in secret……and abuse so many people – children, LGBTIQ, women?

I don’t have to trust any of them. I just have to trust me. And trust my capacity to keep my children safe. And I will keep them safe. Because, I am a real mother, who cares more about protecting my children, than being a mindless sheep, in a church going along with the hierarchy, just to fit in. Continue reading

If I’m going to do this Inner Child Healing……I’m gonna give it my all…

Today, I went to the shops to buy my son some new texta pens, as his are all running out.

So, I decided to buy myself, a girly pencil case, as well as some texta pens for me and some for my 5 year old son. I bought a few girly colouring books of Fairies and Rapunzel and a few cute craft things to make with my son.

My son is very ‘crafty’ at the moment and loves writing, drawing and colouring in too and I am encouraging this.

A few weeks ago, I bought some plain cardboard house cut outs (I love the craft shop Riot), with opening doors, and my son I enjoyed drawing and colouring different designs onto them. His are very boy like, very 5 year old, with lots of solid colours, basic windows, as you would expect from a young child. Mine are cute and girly, with pretty curtains, and a teddy bear in the window, butterflies on the walls, birds on the roof and flowers growing up the walls. Continue reading
