Four children – all under 7 – left home alone on Saturday night were found scared and crying when police went into a Whangarei house.

A 24-year-old Raumanga woman faces four charges of neglecting a child under the age of 18 and will appear in Whangarei District Court today.

7-year-old girl a victim of progressivism and political correctness.

October 9, 2013 6 comments

From the Stuff website:

The parents of a seven-year-old girl are backing a decision for her to live as a boy and to medically stop puberty.

In as little as two years the child, whom the Sunday Star-Times has chosen not to identify, could start a course of drugs dubbed puberty blockers.

This is the first step toward hormone replacement treatment and possible surgery.

It would mean the child, whose story is being told today  with the support of his family, will never fully develop a woman’s body and its natural functions.

However, if the injections, which are given once every three months, are stopped, the body would continue its normal development.

“If he reaches 11, 12 or 13 and decides it’s not what he wants, then he stops blockers and he’ll go through puberty as a woman,” said the child’s mother.

Comment:

This story is heartbreaking and tragic. In progressive P.C. la la land, a child’s every (progressive aligned) whim must be encouraged and indulged, even if harmful to the child.

The parents in this article have failed competely in their duty to guide their child’s gradual development into a happy, well adjusted, functioning, contributing member of society. Instead, the child will likely grow up totally self absorbed, unhappy, and confused.

Statistically there is a high incidence of substance abuse, mental health issues, prostitution, and self harm/suicide among people who have undergone sex change treatments.

All of this could easily be avoided with some sensible, firm, and positive parenting.

Willful ignorance means mother walks free in manslaughter of baby.

September 25, 2013 1 comment

Cherie Denese Nagle, 48, pled guilty to manslaughter after her 11-day-old baby boy (Reef Rippa Stone) died of extreme dehydration and severe meningitis.

Nagle walked free after Justice Joe Williams ruled that the baby’s death was not due to a lack of care or love but a lack of understanding of the baby’s gradually worsening condition.

My guess is the mother follows some kind of alternative religious or homeopathic lifestyle and shuns modern medicine, given that the baby and her other children were all born at home with no medical assistance.

In New Zealand where medical care is free for children, no baby should ever die due to a lack of medical care. The mother and her willful ignorance are 100% to blame for this needless death.

Abusive mother says “It’s the government’s fault”.

December 22, 2011 Leave a comment

A woman found guilty of abusing two of her children has hit back, saying she is “not really a bad mother”. She blames Social Welfare for not helping her enough, and has taken little responsibility for the horrific abuse she inflicted on her 9-year-old daughter, who was found hiding in a cupboard starving, dehydrated, bruised and suffering from broken bones and anemia from internal bleeding and her scalp had been half torn off.

Meanwhile the NZ government has released the Smith report, which details the history of involvement that government agencies have had with both the mother and the child in the article below.

Mum is girl’s worst nightmare.

An Auckland mother found guilty of horrific child abuse went to jail saying she is “not really a bad mother”. The woman, 31, who has name suppression, was sentenced to seven and a half years in prison with a non-parole period of five years when she appeared in the Auckland District Court yesterday.

The 10-year-old girl is so terrified she has nightmares her mother will get out of jail, find her and continue the beatings. Emotional pleas by the girl and her eight-year-old brother were read to Auckland District Court yesterday as their west Auckland mother was jailed for sustained and horrific abuse against them.

“I still have nightmares about what happened to me. In my dreams my mother and father are out of jail and trying to find me to hurt me some more,” the girl said in a victim impact statement. Her brother, through a statement he insisted was read to court, told judge Brooke Gibson he wanted his parents to stay in jail for a long time.

“I was hurt for a long time so I think they should stay where they are for a long time too. “There is nothing nice about my mum. I can’t think of any good things. I can think of lots of bad things. I don’t know why I was hit so much but I think it was because I wasn’t good enough.”

The case came to light last year when the girl, aged nine at the time, was found hiding in a cupboard in her home. She was starving, dehydrated, bruised and suffering from broken bones and anaemia from internal bleeding and her scalp had been half torn off.

The case appalled the nation and has been dubbed one of the worst abuse cases in which a child had lived. The mother pleaded guilty to 25 charges, including tearing off the girl’s toe nail and pouring boiling water and salt over the bleeding toe.

She wrote abusive comments on the girl’s body, kicked her in the vaginal area, and assaulted her with weapons, including a machete, broom handle and table leg. The mother also abused her son, who was seven at the time.

The mother has spoken out, saying she is not a bad parent and was simply trying to protect her other three children. “I’m a bad mum for what I done to the child but I’m not really a bad mother at all.”

She told counsellors she was reaching breaking point over her daughter’s deteriorating behaviour, she said. She hit her daughter on the bottom with a broomstick multiple times because she “couldn’t handle it anymore”, she told Radio Live.

“They said that I tortured her, I didn’t torture her. Yes I did assault her, I slapped her around, I punched her.” Defence lawyer Lorraine Smith said the mother’s actions were those of a woman let down by the system and multiple agencies, a statement that angered cabinet minister Paula Bennett.

“My submission is that both the Prime Minister and the Minister for Social Development failed both [the child] and her mother.” The mother wrote to Prime Minister John Key asking for help. He passed the letter on to Social Development Minister Paula Bennett, who replied offering six additional counselling sessions for the girl.

“In hindsight I wish I was writing back and saying the police are knocking on your door we’re removing your children from you right now,” Ms Bennett said. But blame for the horrific abuse lay squarely with the parents, she said.

“That child was so deeply failed by those very parents that were supposed to protect her, so it’s fine to sit back now and try and blame someone else or the Government while in the meantime you are dehydrating, starving and beating your child.

“I’m afraid, no I don’t stand and take responsibility for that, she should stand up and take it herself.” The girl has been in Child Youth and Family (CYF) care since she was four months old. She was returned to her mother after being allegedly sexually abused by a family member whose care she was in.

More than 25 agencies had dealt with the family, including 13 in the six months leading up to the mother’s arrest. A ministerial inquiry into the case was released yesterday and made 13 recommendations, including new CYF liaison workers for schools, mandatory reporting of abuse and neglect, urgent research on ‘family-first’ care and a new child protection court.

Man commits suicide, but not before killing his 2-year-old son.

Father, son in shock death.

A man has been found dead with his 2-year-old son, shocking neighbours in a quiet upmarket street – and leaving behind a grieving mother.

Waimauku neighbour Sheryl Houston was leaving work on Friday evening when she heard emergency vehicles heading into Cloverfields Drive as a Santa parade was wrapping up.

“I heard ambulances and sirens and all that going on. When I went to go home I thought there’d been a road accident,” Houston said. The apparent murder-suicide happened in Buttercup Place, a new subdivision in the area northwest of Auckland.

Police have not released any names but said they were not seeking anyone else in connection with the deaths. However, neighbours said the dead man had worked as an engineer in East Auckland. He was in a relationship with a woman who works at a rehabilitation centre. Their child attended a local kindergarten.

Neighbour Ian Barron said: “You think it won’t happen on your doorstep. They were just people minding their own business. It’s sad.”

A neighbour on State Highway 16 said police arrived on her doorstep on Friday night. “It’s just devastating.” Her suspicions were aroused when the couple’s dog arrived on Friday evening looking stressed. “He didn’t want to go back.”

Neglected 5-year-old sent to school smelly, hungry and riddled with head lice and scabies.

Sian Corbett-Pitman

Contender for mother-of-the-year Sian Corbett-Pitman has been convicted of neglecting her 5-year-old daughter.

A couple of pearls of wisdom from her Bookface page: “life is to short, so live it up, drink it down, party hard, smoke alot, break the rules, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh loudly, have fun, make memories, and never forget or regret anything that once made you smile :)”

Mother admits neglecting daughter, 5

A mum who sent her 5-year-old daughter to school smelly, hungry and riddled with head lice and scabies has been convicted of neglect. Sian Corbett-Pitman, 23, from Tauranga, was sentenced last week to 12 months’ intensive supervision and 100 hours’ community work. She had pleaded guilty.

Her lawyer, Tony Rickard-Simms, said in court his client was “naive, inexperienced and had difficulty caring for herself, let alone a child” and she recognised she needed help. After the girl’s condition deteriorated between February and June this year, Child, Youth and Family was told and the girl and her mother were taken to Tauranga Hospital.

The girl’s appearance was described as unkempt, her clothes were often dirty and as well as being heavily infested with head lice, she had not bathed. She often told her teacher she had not had breakfast and did not have any lunch.

The child was placed in her grandmother’s care and she is now attending another school. Corbett-Pitman told police she had noticed her daughter’s health had deteriorated and believed it was because of overcrowding at her home.

Judge Harding told Corbett-Pitman that, while the offending may have occurred at a time when her home was grossly overcrowded, she had let the situation go on for too long.

“Your standard of care to your daughter fell well below the standard expected by anyone. If you can’t do better than that, then no doubt Child, Youth and Family will remove the child from your care, which overall would probably be a bad thing because a child needs its mother.

Judge Harding added: “But if you can’t look after her appropriately, then someone else will.”
