Children’s rights of access

Comment 1st July 2010

The law current supports seperated parents' upsidedown ownership-based view of their children.

Establish in law that parents do not have right of access to children; rather that children have right of access to parents and that parents have a duty of responsibility to enable that access.

Why does this matter?

I get so frustrated at these illiterate Fathers For Justice-type people banging on about their 'rights' of access to their children. They strike me as possessive grasping at something they want to possess, that's not any sane basis for any relationship. What about their children's rights? What if the child doesn't want access to the parent? It should be the child's right to have access to its parents, and both parents' responsibility to enable that access.
