“Barnevernet – Child Protection Services in Norway destroy families”, says Professor Skaanland

Posted by African Press International on February 20, 2007

Not only minority families are destroyed by the CPS (child protection services) in Norway. It is done to ethnic Norwegians too, though it is correct that minority families are harassed to an even greater extent.

Ueland (comment above) is either naive or expressing the official, politically correct propaganda. I know very well several cases where foster families finance very luxurious living by taking on foster children.

The social services even advertise for foster parents to take on a foster child at a salary of over NOK 300.000 per year (approx. 40.000 Euros). Additional remuneration per extra child, often plus tax free “expense coverage” plus paid vacation on the Mediterranean, etc.

Recently foster parents have also had the monthly child benefit put at their disposal. The child benefit for a child not living with its parents was previously to be saved up in a bank account for the child, to be given over to the child at 18, or when it was allowed to move back to its parents. (The transfer Never happens)
The whole set-up is a social engineering project whereby children essentially belong to the state and in fact serve to finance several tens of thousands of “child experts”: CPS social workers, psychologists, therapists, foster parents, social bureaucrats, what have you.

It is provided with an ideology based on psychobabble and all sorts of speculation, biological relationship is considered without value and parents are considered the child’s natural enemies. In reality, very few of these children experience any harm from their parents, but a lot are mistreated in fosterhomes and institutions, and long wildly for their own families.

In the few cases where the parents are really incapable of taking care of their children or are a danger to the children, there are practically always grandparents or other relatives who beg for the children to live with them, but the CPS always prevent it. They likewise torture child and family by curtailing meetings, and have a whole crazy philosophy of

This crazy plague is much the same in all countries once they start building up their social services and train psychobabblers, but the Scandinavian countries are among the worst, perhaps THE worst.

One reason is probably that our populations are naively unsuspicious of the motives and mechanisms of state employees and public institutions.

Both Norway and especially Sweden have been found guilty of serious violations of family rights in the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg (I know these cases very well and some of them personally). But regardless of this condemnation our states continue all the same; it is even getting worse.

We need your help! We need information spread abroad about the destruction of families in our oh-so-civilised countries.

Kindly consult the websites http://nkmr.org and http://www.barnasrett.no, both of which have sections in English. http://forum.r-b-v.net also has a small section in English. nkmr.org is Nordic, the web-site is based in Sweden. The other two are Norwegian.

  1. Also native Norwegians fear badly the SWF system in Norway. They use children as trade objects out of greed for money. If you deviate from some strict and unnatural normality scheme or culturally, your children are really in danger. This system snaps children to the full extent of their capacity. If you give them the double capacity, they will snap twice as many children as now.Generally I worn families with children moving to Norway or even visiting Norway as tourists. To kis your child or give it a good embrace is enough in this country to be suspected of child sexual abuse and have your children taken away from you.

    Thank you for your efforts. Family is next to GOD. It is an absolute nonsense to say someone else loves kids more than their parents.

    This is the letter the United Nations sent regarding the Norway childcare agency expressing serious concern regarding the whole system:

    Thanks,

    So, Don’t Be Quiet At All.
