Durham Children’s Aid Society: What’s the truth?
My experience with the DCAS (Durham Children’s Aid Society) has been anything but equal. Over and over again I’ve experienced first hand case workers that place the child welfare behind personal, and I think institutional, prejudice.
Case in point, during a recent interview held by a case worker my son repeatedly told her that he didn’t want phone access. I later found out that the case worker stated to the child “…don’t lie… I know you’re lying”. Her goal was to have him ‘change’ what he thought and bully him in to saying something else. Later my son said to me “how many times do I have to tell her until she believes me”? Good question, how many times does it take for an employee of the Durham Children’s (DCAS) to believe a child?
