A problem shared is just that, a place for you to share your problems and for other readers to respond, support you and give some useful advice. Today’s problem comes from a concerned mum and regards her dealings with their health visitor….
Which way do you turn for help and advice?
I mean, my child is young and recently placed, so we still have the health visiting team on hand. But how do you know when an issue is health-related, or part of a child’s normal development (or not), or when it’s related to their background, and requires more specialist advice from say, a social worker or post adoption team?
I’ve been accused by the health visiting team of blaming everything on my child’s past, but I don’t feel they take past trauma into account.
My health visitor has often just snatched my child away from me to weigh and measure without a second thought for our growing bonds and attachment. She’s even put the nappy on for us afterwards even though I’ve told her that primary care should only come from me at the moment.
I’m not sure where to turn when I have problems anymore, all I want is the best for my child. Any suggestions? Have you encountered similar problems with any of the professionals involved with your family?
