DCF's definitions of abuse or neglect is based on junk science or no science at all.

Hartford, CT - There is an on going trend in Connecticut and across this nation of parents and children not looking for medical help at the Emergency Room, the family doctor, the pediatrician or therapist or in other words, Rent-A-Friend.
Agencies like DCF are punishing parents for everyday normal occurrences that is just part of being human. Like a child being bit by a bird as part of the normal things that may happen when handling birds like parrots. Or a child getting hit by a bat while playing baseball.
The other part of the growing problem is that nurses, doctors and other mandated reporters are calling in false claims of abuse to DCF not because they feel abuse or neglect took place, they are worried about their license being revoked for failing to report anything.
Parents understand it is very dangerous to go to the ER or doctor feeling their a phone call away for benign injuries that occur. How about when a child breaks a leg skiing or falls off a horse or falls off a bike. Parents are afraid of being reported so they will not seek help in everyday injuries. And when parents tell the attending doctor what happens, they are presumed guilty.
We at Connecticut DCF Watch and attorneys are telling parents across the county to be careful not to go to the ERs and doctors to avoid fabricated claims of abuse or neglect. Case in point, if you are mother and a victim of domestic violence ("DV") be prepared to be victimized by the doctors a second time and victimized again by DCF a third time.
By going to the ER, Mothers need to know DCF will unlawfully abduct your children even though the highest court in the country has already ruled that DV is not emotional neglect or maltreatment of a child. Then they will sell them on the open market called foster care. So, if you do not want your children in a deadly foster care system, do not go to the ER or therapist or counseling. Seek help from family only. NEVER EVER go to purposefully to get help, they will take your child and blame you for the father's behavior.
DCF's policies here in Connecticut and the workers will tell you that domestic violence was allowed to happen by the victim and that the victim failed to stop the violence. DCF has been proven wrong by the US Appellate Court for the 2nd Circuit that witnessing DV is NOT emotional neglect or maltreatment of a child. The experts in this class-action suit overruled DCF and all of its workers by saying "Emotional Neglect" is neither medical or legal fact but a fabrication by DCF and its workers. DCF can not charge either parent any more with emotional neglect because its NOT true and they will loose at the high court.
