. . . The nature of CYF is chaotic because it deals with chaotic people. The organisation is in crisis because it exists to respond to crisis. No law changes, or system revamps, or ‘best practice’ applications will change that.
I feel sorry for the people who work with deeply dysfunctional families. The best of them burn out, and the worst become desensitized.
This latest from the Commissioner, and then s panel to “transform” CYF are just part and parcel of the ongoing drama that is chasing the tail of inter-generational social malaise driven by paying people to have babies. . . – Lindsay Mitchell
