November Post of the Month

I have commented myself upon Mr Justice Coleridge's speech to the Association of Lawyers for Children, in which he called for a return to the golden era when courts were respected, parents did as they were ordered and children were seen but not heard. Whilst my comment was somewhat graphic (perhaps too graphic), Judith Middleton has set out some very practical suggestions for any nostalgia trip, including detention for parents who default on parenting information sessions and cod liver oil for parents whose children are just not quite well enough to have contact, but who miraculously recover once the hour for contact has passed.

These excellent ideas, and more, are contained in Judith's post ALL RISE, which wins my coveted Post of the Month Trophy for November.

(P.S. Sorry Judith, my engraver still can't fit the full name of your blog on the trophy.)


  1. You make me feel very humble John - but what about a bigger trophy to avoid the problem you mention?

  2. Well, I would get a bigger one, but with all these cut backs...
