Gosh, Tayla, this is a really difficult situation. The law definitely states that the best interest of the child is paramount but I’m sure there are a number of complexities within this family that would need to be properly explored by a social worker. Is it at all possible to ask to work together with the Traditional Healer they propose to take him to, where some kind of compromise could be agreed upon? It would be interesting to hear what other people think but I do believe that a social worker needs to assess what should happen here.
