Re: At the End of my Tether!!!!

<t>David <br/> <br/> That is exactly what we did, mum was threatening us with solicitors and new hearings we waited for the dreaded letter to come through the door and when it did we replied like you and gave her previous solicitors details and just had a one liner back saying they were going to see...

Re: Early Years Intervention

<t>Thank you for that....<br/> <br/> Ummm, those are the days I remember, being shunted from pillar to post with every other person being another specialist in his/her field. <br/> <br/> I have since posting this discovered that a core group of professionals is set up to investigate various learning...

Support group in Dartford

<t>I have been approached by several people about a group in Dartford and just wondered if anyone has any plans to set one up. I currently have 2 ladies in need of support that I have met but know there are 2 more at least so think it would be a good start for a group. They need support now though a...

Re: Equal rights

<t>When we are put into difficult positions we all react with a fight or flight response, we don't sometimes have the ability to look from outside the box.
