Listen to children in court involving family issues

Court rooms, CAFCASS, social services need to start listening to children’s opinions and taking children’s feelings/thoughts into consideration when making decisions regarding their placement. Having recently watched a horrific video of children being physically dragged away from their father to live with their abusive mother, I felt I had to do something. This happened to me and my daughter 10 years ago, I was physically, emotionally and mentally abused by her father for years and then CAFCASS & the courts decided he was fit to have joint custody. She was abused and suffered, she would scream and cry, she would beg me not to make her go, I had no choice, I would be arrested and potentially prosecuted if I did not make her go. It took me nearly 4 years of blood, sweat and tears, I persisted and he lost interest and she didn’t go back. But it shouldn’t have happened in the first place. Please sign this petition so we can change what happens to these kids, so people listen and take them into consideration.
