Your comments are so true. Many people who write books have no personal experience. Many Family Services only know what they have been taught at University. I know a family with a special needs child with behavioural problems. They received an impromptu visit (no arrangements made). All the guy had to say was “do….”, “try …..” Things they had already tried to achieve with their daughter. End the end the Dad got really frustrasted and decided to “give the guy some of his own medicine back” He asked him if he wanted to care for her himself, pay all her expenses including hefty medical ones (Medicare gaps, medications etc) and the guy was lost for words. He told him when he had some practical suggestions from a person with personal experience not to contact them again…..They never heard from any of them again. His wife then told the guy that had her husband not been home she would not have unlocked the door. He than had the audacity to say he would have called the Police. Her response was our children are both girls One of them had better be a Female Officer.
