Hoe help 'n mens.

Ag julle sê tog net vir my hoe help mens iemand. My vriendin is 'n alleen ma met twee Seuns en 'n dogter. Die dogter het ook kinders van haar eie. Maar die seuns onderskeidelik 13 en 15 jaar oud gee my vriendin baie probleme. Hulle steel en ag alles wat vieslik is. Hulle het haar laaste geld laasweek gesteel (sy is geretrench in Mei laasjaar) wat omtrent R2800 was waarmee sy nog vleis moes koop en ook haar kar regmaak. Sy het 'n diefstal saak teen hulle gemaak in 'n poging om hulp van iewers te kry want oral loop sy haar teen 'n muur vas. Nie eers 'n maatskaplike werkster van die staat wil haar help nie. Maar nie te min is vir haar vertel dat die twee nie kriminele is nie. As hulle van hulle ma of ander familie steel is hulle nie kriminele nie. Hoe werk dit. Mag ek nou maar vir my dogters vertel dit is doodreg om te steel van jou familie. Die skool waarin hulle is weet van die probleme want hulle het ackermans kleure in hulle besit gevind maar het vir my vriendin gesê hulle gaan haar nie help nie want dan is dit net minder geld vir die skool. Die jongste een is in std. 5 en kan nog nie eers behoorlik lees nie. Hoe gemaak waar kan 'n mens aanklop vir hulp sonder om weg gewys te word of om vertel te word dit is reg om van die hand wat jou voed te steel. Boys Town het laas vir my gesê al hoe kinders in die skool kom is deur 'n maatskaplike werkster maar klop jy daar aan vir hulp dan weier hulle om te help. Help my groot asb. want ek kan sien my vriendin is by breekpunt want sy kan nie meer nie en die pa weier ook om enige iets met die seuns tedoen te hê.

Hi

if their behaviour is getting out of control and social services will not help then you may need to complain to the social services dept outlining your reasons why you feel they should assist you. The police may only be prepared to take action if you open a case against the children if they steal. This may seem like a harsh approach to open a case against your own child, but if they will no longer listen then the legal authorities may have to get involved.

Another resource is Childline which can be contacted at 08000 55555 or www.childline.org.za or FAMSA at www.famsa.org.za

my heart bleeds for you. My brother was a drug addict at the age of 15. Stole to feed his habit and no social worker would help. We begged, we pleaded, we also laid a case against him. Nobody would help. At last he commited a crime and was sent to jail. At the age of 29 he was released and is finding it difficult to get a job and cope. He no longer uses drugs but has no social skills. The government turns a blind eye, and that is the reason why our prisons are so full.

I cant offer you any advice, but I will keep you in my prayers.
