Ban sexualisation of children & gay propaganda in primary schools & on children's tv/books
Firstly let me state I am not homophobic nor is this a homophobic petition; I have gay friends who agree that the sexualisation of young children through the media and schools has hit new heights and is unnecessary to education. This, as well as the gay and straight sexualised propaganda on children's tv, is a disgrace and we have allowed it to happen, hence the creation of this petition to see if the people actually care about the children. It is wrong to tell a young 5 year old there are 75 genders in primary school, it is wrong to explain they have sexual freedom, they end up coming home confused to confused parents who don't know what to say because of political correctness and liberalism. Currently, the Department of Education is making new guidelines and policies without your consent or knowledge. The Education Secretary sets out plans for relationships education in primary schools and relationships and sex education in secondary school, stating "The government is proposing the introduction of the new subject of ‘relationships education’ in primary school and renaming the secondary school subject ‘relationships and sex education’, to emphasise the central importance of healthy relationships." (https://www.gov.uk/government/news/schools-to-teach-21st-century-relationships-and-sex-education I've spoken to many other parents and they feel the same but are scared to speak out for the fear of being labeled homophobic, however the right to groom young children through the media and education systems is hitting fast forward whilst so-called caring parents hide behind false societal fears. If you tell a five year old they can be a unicorn they'll jump at the chance, so telling a boy he can be a girl in primary school is the exact same thing. If you actually care about the children's development and healthy mental health than please sign the petition and pass around to anyone you can. SEXUALISATION OF CHILDREN IS WRONG, GAY OR STRAIGHT ! Russia has this law to protect children why can't Britain? WE ARE THE PEOPLE, THE VOICE AND OUR FUTURE RIDES ON IT
Petition to Irish Retailers and Supermarkets
Enforce Parent & Child Car Parking Spaces
As a new mum, I use the parent and child car parking spaces provided by Irish retailers and supermarkets on an almost daily basis. These spaces are not a mere convenience for most parents or guardians, they are a necessity when getting a baby or small children in and out of car seats, as well as prams, changing bags and of course shopping. All of this is practically impossible to do in a regular sized space, which is why the larger parent & child spaces are so invaluable. However, these spaces are not respected by the general public. On a daily basis, drivers with no children on board thoughtlessly park in these spaces often leaving a parent or guardian with a baby or small children in the car left with no option but to park in a regular sized space further away from the door. Shopping with babies and small children is hard enough without having to try and manoeuvre them, their prams, equipment and the shopping in a car in a tiny parking space. Many retailers are not enforcing these spaces adequately. I've asked all the major Irish retailers to address this, however they tell me that because these spaces are not a legal requirement there is nothing they can do. In short, it is not a 'legal offence' to park there so they claim to be powerless to do anything constructive. I believe this is a cop out. Many of these same stores would happily clamp a car that flagrantly parked on its premises all day while the owner took the bus into town for example. So why can they not start to police the parent and child spaces? All it would take is for a few notices to be issued for people to start to get the message. I feel it’s a lack of will on their part, but as parents we need to stand up and demand action. If every parent voted with their feet and told retailers they would not shop in their stores until they started taking this issue seriously, you can bet they would take note. So why are you putting up with it? Sign this petition and ask the big Irish supermarkets and retailers to do something about it now.

Acknowledge transgender people on the birth certificate
There are a number of transgender men who want and choose to carry a baby. However, one issue that makes this difficult is that the process of giving birth is a determining factor in the transgender man being registered on the birth certificate as the ‘mother’ of the child. This is the present situation as written in British law; Section 12 of the Gender Recognition Act states, “The fact that a person's gender has become the acquired gender under this Act does not affect the status of the person as the mother or father of a child”. The law is unclear, but suggests that whilst protecting the status of parents who legally transition after the birth of a child, it also restricts parents who legally transition before the birth of a child. We believe that this is unacceptable, as transgender and non-binary parents who identify as male are having their rights to recognised fatherhood discriminated against. At present, a transgender father will be registered as the child’s mother. This will inevitably result in the transgender parent being ‘outed’ throughout the life of the child. In turn, this can cause embarrassment, discomfort, and potential cause for discrimination and- in the worst case- violence against them. As the Office of National Statistics identified of the 2014-2015 period, recorded hate crimes against transgender people were up 9% on the previous year. However, the Crime Survey of England and Wales estimates that there are 222,000 hate crimes of all types committed on average every year a difference of 169,472 crimes unreported to police. We fundamentally believe that transgender people should be registered as their self-identified gender identity on their own child’s birth certificate. Further, that the Gender Recognition Act is outdated on this matter. Please fight for transgender parents to have equal rights. Thank you for your consideration.
Petition to Governments of Iran & UK & EU, HR Federica Mogherini, President Hassan Rouhani, Iran, Theresa May MP
Bitte lasst meinen Großvater nach Hause kommen!
لطفا پدربزرگمان را به خانه برگردانید
Mein Vater Kamal Foroughi ist ein 78-jähriger, britisch-iranischer Großvater. Er wird in einem iranischen Gefängnis gefangen gehalten. Seit mehr als sieben Jahren gilt für ihn ein Besuchsverbot und er hat keinen Zugang zu wichtiger medizinischer Versorgung. Amnesty International sagt, dass „seine Gesundheit sich verschlechtert und er spezielle medizinische Versorgung außerhalb des Gefängnisses benötigt“. Wir, seine Familie, leben in Großbritannien und haben schreckliche Angst, dass er bald sterben wird. Er ist einer der ältesten und einsamsten Gefangenen im Iran. Mein Vater wird seit Mai 2011 im Evin Gefängnis festgehalten. Er wurde ohne einen richterlichen Beschluss oder eine Erklärung festgenommen. 2013 wurde er der Spionage schuldig erklärt. Dabei handelt es sich um einen schrecklichen Irrtum. Mein Vater ist kein Spion, er ist ein Großvater, der gern Zeit mit seiner Familie und seinen Freunden verbringt, Tennis spielt oder Wimbledon-Spiele im Fernsehen ansieht. Es gab bis jetzt keinen einzigen Beweis, der seine Verurteilung rechtfertigen würde. Gefangene werden normalerweise wegen gutes Benehmens im Iran früh freigelassen. Vati kommt seit Januar 2014 jeden Tag für Entlassung in Frage, und sein Verhalten ist immer einwandfrei. Jedoch wird er trotz vieler Versprechen nicht freigelassen, und wir wissen nicht warum. Unsere Familie ist verunsichert. Mein Vater Kamal Foroughi hat uns seit mehr als sieben Jahren nicht gesehen und seine Enkelinnen hören nicht auf zu fragen, wann Opa nach Hause kommt. Bitte helfen Sie unseren Alptraum zu beenden. Unterschreiben Sie diese Petition und fordern Sie die britische Regierung und die Iranischen Behörden dazu auf, Kamal Foroughi nachhause zu bringen, zu seiner Familie. Damit er den Rest seines Lebens mit uns und in Frieden verbringen kann und wir uns um ihn kümmern können. Am Oberhaupt Ayatollah Khamenei, am Präsident Hassen Rouhani, am obersten Richter der Justiz Ayatollah Larijani, an Iran: Bitte zeigen Sie Mitgefühl und lassen Sie Großvater Kamal Foroughi nach Hause zu seiner Familie kommen. An den Britischen Premier Minister Theresa May undAn Federica Mogherini: Bitte behandeln Sie weiterhin den Fall von Großvater Kamal Foroughi mit höchster Priorität in Ihren Verhandlungen mit dem Iran.

Let my son be with his family
Where to begin. First and foremost Birmingham Children's Services have themselves stated my son has NEVER come to ANY harm in the care of his mother/myself. My son was placed on a child protection register at birth due to me having convictions for violence 4 years previous, he was kept on child protection aged 3 months due to the fact he was "a very advanced baby" and this "may have led his mother to expect to much of him which might cause significant emotional harm". From July 2014-September 2014 my son , his mother and myself lived a happy peaceful life the days were spent loving,nurturing and enjoying our cheery,happy perfect baby ,however we made the grave error of reporting the fact social worker NADINE REDSHAW was turning up clearly intoxicated and had pictures on her Facebook of her friends babies drinking cans of carling, after that Children's Services embarked upon a smear campaign with the aim of stealing our son for adoption. We were branded "bizarre and paranoid" for refusing to strip our son naked in front of a room full of 10/12 strangers, his mother was labelled as "having a learning difficulty she struggled with" - she has genius level IQ (Children's services declined her offer to take an IQ test), we were branded "tremendously defiant" for refusing to sign our son over to my abusive mother , his mother simply asking for the law to be adhered to meant she had "personality difficulties" and quiet unbelievably our next door neighbours were asked to sign a statement "telling a little white lie" - the "little white lie" being that my son's mother had gone out and left our son in the house unsupervised. Back in December 2014 my son was illegally and viciously seperated from his mother by Birmingham Children's Services and my own mother who has a history of abusing children. 2 days before Christmas his mother went to collect him only to have my own mother refuse to hand him over whilst screaming PPO (police protection order) at my son's mother so his mother rung the police to retrieve our son only for the social worker SYEDA TAHERAH AHMED to lie to the police and claim my mother had custody. The reason Social Services gave for so brazenly breaking the law was "the child may be harmed" due to the fact that his mother and myself had had a verbal disagreement when our son wasnt in our care. His mother wanted to take our son to her fathers home in a different city without me. She kept trying to get our son back for the same thing to keep happening until we were taken to court. My mother made up a pack of lies to try and keep our son for herself. Social Services advocated for her relentlessly and the courts put our son in the care of this woman despite the fact at the time she was under police investigation for serious child abuse allegations perpetrated against her own children (me). Thankfully an independent social worker highlighted what a danger this woman was and my son was removed. Me and his mother PASSED a parenting assessment, we proved all allegations against us to be lies and his mother offered to take our son upon him being returned to her care to live at her fathers home away from myself (the "problem"). However Children's services decided to press for adoption due to facts we are still unsure of. At the Final Hearing the social worker was proven to have lied repeatedly about his mother and so had the guardian ELAINE BENNETT. After a 5 day hearing and a 2 week wait we were told our son would be placed for adoption due to the fact his mother had "drawn a malicious picture" of the social worker and because his mother had asked the social worker SYEDA TAHERAH AHMED and manager RUTH EVELYN HILL to apologise for the fact she had been told she could not care for him as a vunerable single parent. Barbara Carter of Barbara Carter Solicitors was the judge behind this scandalous decision she made findings on things his mother was not even questioned about,falsely claimed my sons mother accepted threshold and felt it appropriate to describe him as 'a very attractive baby to adopters' (one of the reasons the order was given according to Barbara Carter). Legal Aid solicitors CARTWRIGHT KING and BLAIR ALLISON colluded with BCS to remove our son for 'potential risk of emotional harm'. My son has until March to be rescued from the clutches of strangers, strangers who follow a completely different religion to him, strangers who are ripping a child from a loving mother to help fill a void in there own lives. My son is not your baby to have, He has a family who love and want him, he is the centre of the whole family and without him it is pointless. His mother says her home feels like someone has died without him in it. He doesn't deserve to be punished for my actions, his mother doesn't deserve to be punished because of my actions and he definitely doesn't need ripping from his family until he is 18 for things his mother "may or may not do" based on MY past. His mother due to Birmingham Family Courts decision to refuse to process her appeals for some unknown reason now has to wait to oppose the adoption order. Enough signatures will get my son's voice heard and just maybe if his voice is heard loud enough he might just might be returned to where he belongs and the courts might stop ignoring applications put before them and see justice done. If the family courts weren't secret he would have NEVER been removed. I quote Paul Pennington-Wilson (independent social worker) : "The parents present as loving parents who's lives revolve around their son" and finally i quote judge Barbara Carter "the mother is clearly a very bright,intelligent,engaging and fiesty young woman with much to offer those around her including her son."

Working parents should receive free child care for children from 6 months old!
Working all my life I recently looked in to help with child care for my 4 month old baby in a hope to return to work when she was 6 months old, as financially I, like many others need to. I was surprised that working parents have access to very limited financial support during these early months/years. This is a challenge for many parents across the UK. Mainly because we need to return to work to carry on being a productive member of society but to also pay for our families. Everyone is entitled to some free childcare hours when their child reaches a certain age, but there is no help before the age of 2. Some people who are on certain benefits can receive 15 hours free childcare when their child is 2 year old. But if you don't receive any benefits you receive nothing. Two of the largest problems us working parents now face are: * We go back to work part-time, with nearly all our earnings from the average job having to pay for our child care costs to do so * We cannot claim any other benefits to help us until the following tax year because we would have earnt "too much" though now we are struggling! So we are in a catch 22. We cannot give back to society without some help with child care costs in those early days effectively when all our money is spent on the child care itself and bills. We cant go and buy say fuel for our cars without struggling to add back to in to the system for example. People who receive certain benefits will also benefit from (and not just in the first year of the childs life): * Free dental, free prescriptions, milk vouchers, discounted rent and/or council tax. I believe working parents who are not eligible for other benefits (within reason) should be able to claim 15 hours free child care from the point of their child turning 6 months old. It benefits working individuals and benefits society with money being put back in to the system. Give us working parents a helping hand please!
Petition to Nutricia
Change Aptamil back to the old formula
The new formula for Aptamil does not mix correctly, leaving lumps, that leaves the milk watery. This has lead to a multitude of problems for parents. At the same time the pack size has shrunk by 100g making the product more expensive. He formula should be changed back to the one that parents and their babies are used to, and the pack size reinstated.
Petition to British Red cross, 1st aid, Paediatric 1st aid
Paediatric 1st aid training for parents
I work with young children and have 2 under 3 myself. Im no strsnger to the odd cough or something tickling the throat. I have my peadiatric 1st aid training purley because of working with children. You never think your going to need to actually use this. Least of all on your own children. My youngest recently choked at home on what I can only presume to be the most minute piece of fluff as we hoover every day. She stopped breathing twice through choking. I believe if it wasn't for the fact that I was already aware of what to do I would have been a lot panicker and the paramedics may have been dealing with a whole new situation. Thankfully by the time the paramedics arrived little one had managed to dislodge what ever it was through vigorous back slapping and tilted positioning. I'd love the idea of antenatal classes offering paediatric 1st aid training compulsory or for there to be a way to make paediatric 1st aid training compulsory for parents. I'm not saying it's going to make you a paramedic but in the worst possible event it may at least make you more relaxed about the situation whilst seeking professional services help knowing you may be able to help.
