This is not a completely unusual scenario for practitioners to encounter: it is based upon a number of real referrals for neglect. Once we view the family from the children’s perspective, another set of issues emerges. It may be that the children themselves are unaware of the full extent of their sibling and half-sibling network. It may also be the case that some, or all, of the children are uncertain about the biological connections. It is not unusual to hear children describe a half-sibling as a step-sibling, for example.
There may be other practice benefits from exploring the extent of the network in more detail; for example, it may reveal a member of the extended family who is prepared to offer practical or emotional support in child care. Key Messages for Practice 1. The role that the father has with his children, whether resident, or non-resident, has to be rendered visible. The impact of separation from the father, under whatever circumstances, should form part of the enquiry and assessment. 2. Practitioners need to ask about the relationship between each child and his or her father.
The guiding principle of intervention is that the child and his or her needs must be placed at the centre of every assessment of family relationships. 7. Practitioners must look at the structure of the family from the perspective of all its members without making assumptions about roles. 8. If there is to be direct communication with children, then it is essential to be clear about what they have been told, have inferred and know about who is their father. 9. If a man is considered to be a risk this should be dealt with explicitly and not hidden behind the fact that he may not have parental responsibilities.
