Child Abduction: Teach your child about stranger safety


August 20, 2012

Source: The Asian Parent

It pays to be cautious of who your child engages with in public places, but are we emphasising the wrong things when we teach our children about stranger-danger?

We’ve seen and heard the stories in the news, on crime dramas and even from friends. Child abductions, paedophilia, even maternal psychological conditions that lead to women believing other people’s children to be their own. As parents, we treat any and every of such stories dead seriously, but are we scaring ourselves — and our children — into a corner?

Protecting our children will always be the foremost priority. But existing perceptions of “stranger-danger” builds itself around a stereotyped shady-looking person whose sole purpose in life is to take away your child and do bad things to him or her.

Reality check: I’m not that person. And neither is more than 99.9998% of the Singapore population (or just about anywhere else), the last time I checked anywhere outside my house.

In fact, teaching your child about stranger-danger based on popular concepts may end up harming your child’s social development – and may even put your child in more danger. We explain and bust 3 major myths of stranger-danger so you can be the judge.

Strangers are everywhere. They can be the neighbours that never say hi, casual shoppers in malls, hawkers selling you chicken rice, and even fill up an entire classroom on your child’s first day at school. Teaching your child not to talk to strangers will instill a fear of socialising within your child, when in reality, your child will need to learn to deal with strangers for the rest of his or her life.

Myth 2: Don’t go anywhere on your own

Part of a child’s learning and development depends on the ability to explore the world around him or her, with or without parental supervision. At some point your child will be old enough to take care of him- or herself, but before then, cautioning your child not to venture out on his or her own will only delay the process, and is also a major cause of parent-child attachment issues.

Myth 3: Stranger-danger is everywhere

Our media will play up missing children reports, not only for the sake of finding these children, but also because the drama draws more eyeballs. Similarly, local authorities will always caution for us to err on the side of safety, simply because it is the foolproof way of cutting down such incidents. Based on police statistics, though 3000 missing persons reports are filed annually, only 0.0002% of Singapore’s resident population remain missing every year, most of whom are adults and/or runaways, and not kidnap victims.

In fact, your child will much more likely be harmed or abducted by a known relative or family acquaintance than a stranger. But given that kidnapping is a crime punishable by death in Singapore, chances of your child being abducted is extremely slim given the risk the would-be abductor has to place on his life for the act.

We share some sensible insights by Lenore Skenazy, host of the radical parenting show “World’s Worst Mom”, who also helps reconnect worried parents with reality in her book, Free-Range Kids.

Teach your child to interact with strangers

Outside of your own family and social circle, the world is mostly made up of strangers, and in reality, we’re really all good people who just think your child is adorable.

In her book, Lenore categorically states that “(the) ‘Don’t trust anyone!’ lesson could conceivably end up making (a child) less safe”. In the event that a child does encounter a predator, he or she won’t be equipped with the social understanding that calling for help from other strangers and attracting attention is a viable option.

“The safest kids are the confident kids”

So says Ernie Allen, head of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. His organisation provides a solution based on studying children successfully escaping abduction attempts — the kids did it by kicking and screaming, a reaction that children with reservations about themselves would probably not think of doing. Allen also mentions that this is the “same techniques you’d use to resist peer pressure over drugs or bullies or gangs.”

You are the precedent

Remember your own childhood and compare it to your own child’s time. “Forty years ago,” Lenore says, “the majority of U.S. children walked or biked to school. Today, about 10 percent do. Meantime, 70 percent of today’s moms say they played outside as kids. But only 31 percent of their kids do.”

Lenore’s Free-Range Kids movement seeks to ensure parents around the world that the world is a much safer place than the media — or we — make it out to be. But more importantly, it’s also about giving our children the childhood they deserve, full of play and none of the worry, just as we had when we were kids.

internationale Kindesentführungen


Tragischerweise hat internationale Kindesentführungen weltweit epidemische Ausmaße erreicht. Laut führenden Experten wird die Anzahl der interethnischen Ehen und Beziehungen ansteigen. Die Anzahl der Kinder, deren Eltern aus unterschiedlichen Nationalitäten und Religionen stammen, wird somit ebenfalls deutlich erhöht.

Was für alle Beziehungen gilt, wird es auch hier eine signifikante Zahl von Ehen oder Partnerschaften geben die in einer Trennung enden.

All zu oft, nach dem Zerfall einer Beziehung, wird ein Elternteil, gegen den willen des anderen Elternteils,  versuchen etwaige Kinder in ein Land, wo das Kind höchst wahrscheinlich nie gelebt hat, zu verschleppen. Dies wird als „Grenzüberschreitende elterliche Kindesentführung“ bezeichnet.

Obwohl es viele zivilrechtliche Rechtsbeihilfen für Eltern von entführten Kinder zu Verfügung stehen, sind große Hürden zu überwinden. In erster Linie den  Aufenthaltsort des Kindes zu ermitteln.

Leider ist der Großteil der Eltern die finanzielle Belastung zu hoch. Jedes Jahr werden zehntausende Kinder von Eltern entführt und viele von diesen kommen nie wieder nach Hause. ABP World Group widmet sich diesen Eltern und unterstützt diese mit Ortung, Rettung und Rückkehr der entführten Kinder.

RÉCUPÉRATION DES ENFANTS ENLEVÉS


Les enlèvements d’enfants ont tragiquement atteint des proportions épidémiques dans le monde. Selon des experts de premier plan, l’augmentations des mariages et les relations interraciales résulterons dans l’avenir dans une hausse de nombres d’enfants nées avec des parents de nationalités differentes.

C’est le cas pour toutes les relations, les statistiques montrent qu’un bon nombre des ces mariages ou relations, aboutissent à un divorce ou une séparation.

Trop souvent, suite à la rupture d’un mariage, l’un des parents enlève l’enfant de cette relation contre la volonté de l’autre parent, et les retirent souvent dans un pays où l’enfant n’a probablement jamais vécu. C’est ce qu’on appelle “l’enlèvement parental international d’enfants”.

Bien qu’il existe différentes remèdes civiles disponibles aux parents d’enfants enlevés, les défis auxquels ils sont confrontés sont énormes, y compris en premier lieu, la localisation de l’enfant.

Parental Child Abduction: How to Find a Good Child Custody Attorney / Lawyer


A good lawyer is an investment, and often the difference between win or loose. You will need a lawyer who specialize in international parental child abduction. This is the most important momentum in IPCA cases.

Divorce and parental child abduction is a very hard process in itself. And when the children are involved it’s always difficult. And fight for the rights to have the custody over a child may be a very important fight in a person’s life. But courts try to consider all the facts of the case and try to make the best decision for a child. This decision should benefit to a child greatly.

Most people do not have a clue how to find a good lawyer when they need one. In fact, statistics show that 68% of consumers spend two hours or fewer gathering information before selecting a lawyer. The vast majority of consumers report feeling they “can trust” their lawyer is the most important factor in the selection process. 

There are almost as many different practice areas as there are lawyers. For example, a lawyer who practices admiralty law might not be the best attorney to assist a person needing a divorce. Or, a construction lawyer might not be best suited for a real estate dispute.

Our advice is to avoid local lawyers from small law offices. Try to get a well experienced one that are recommended by your local missing children organization.

One of the best resources to find a lawyer that does the kind of law you need is through other lawyers. Everyone should know at least one lawyer they could call and ask for a referral. Even if the lawyer you know practices criminal law and you need someone to prepare a will, the criminal lawyer will be able to give you some referrals in the practice area you need.

There are also referral lists maintained by most local and state bar associations. The downfall of using these services is that there is usually no screening on the qualifications of the particular lawyer with the individual need. It is then up to the consumer to inquire sufficiently into the lawyer’s experience compared to the need of the consumer.

The internet is an extremely beneficial source of locating a lawyer. Many websites maintain directories of lawyers nationwide. Most law firms these days maintain websites and usually you can find those through any search engine. Often lawyers are active in professional or community organizations which may be featured on a website.

The next step is to conduct an in-person meeting with the attorney. The initial interview with an attorney that you are considering hiring is extremely important. Take with you to the interview all of the documents and other information that relates to your problem. Also take with you the names and addresses of the important people that have something to do with your case.

Don’t be afraid to ask your lawyer about his or her credentials. Ask how many cases similar to your’s that she has handled. Prepare a list of questions to ask when you get there – what is the law related to your case? What are the realistic outcomes? What is the lawyer’s philosophy for handling your case? Does she recommend an aggressive approach or one geared more toward settlement?

Consider your comfort level with the attorney and the personal compatibility. Did you get a feeling of trust from the attorney? Did the attorney seem to know what she was talking about? Did the lawyer seem confident about your case? I never recommend that a person hire the first attorney they meet with – always interview at least two attorneys before making a hiring decision.

The next step, once you have decided on an attorney, is to establish reasonable expectations. Many people have never dealt with a lawyer before, so they don’t know what to expect. First and foremost, you should expect frank, honest advice. Your lawyer should point out for you the strong and weak points of your case and give you a realistic expectation of the potential outcomes. She should keep you informed and send you copies of documents pertaining to your case. If a lawyer gives you a guaranteed result, run the other way!!! Lawyers are prohibited from guaranteeing any particular outcome, so be very leery if this happens. Don’t expect your lawyer to act as a psychologist, financial advisor, tax planner, or to give any other advice outside of her expertise. If you need advice in other areas, consult a professional in that area.

Likewise, you should be completely honest and upfront with your lawyer. The best way for your lawyer to protect you is through complete information. Be prompt for appointments and hearings. Some people are not used to having major consequences for tardiness. I have seen more than one judge who doesn’t hesitate to dismiss a case or fine a person for being late to court.

Keep your lawyer advised of your address and phone number. Although this seems simplistic, you can’t imagine how often I have had clients move and fail to tell me. Also tell your lawyer if there are any developments or changes that affect your case.

If a problem arises between you and your lawyer, be open and discuss it. Give your lawyer the opportunity to correct the problem. If the problem can’t be resolved, you have the right to hire another lawyer to help you. Be aware, however, that you shouldn’t make these kinds of decisions too close to a court hearing, as you might not be given additional time to find a new attorney.

A very important aspect of hiring an attorney involves payment of the attorney’s fees. Most attorneys require an initial consultation fee. In other words, you’ll have to pay for the attorney’s time during your first meeting. This fee is usually not more than one hour of the attorney’s time at her usual hourly rate.

During the initial meeting, the attorney should explain the fee arrangement for your case. Most cases are handled on a retainer basis. The client pays a retainer to cover a certain amount of time spent on the case (usually between one and two months of work) and is billed hourly. Most attorneys require that the retainer be replenished when it has been used up. If your case is a simple matter, it may be handled on a flat rate. Most simple wills are done on flat rates. Personal injury cases, like automobile accidents, are based on a contingency fee. The attorney takes a percentage of any collected award – usually between 33% and 40% – and the client doesn’t pay a fee if there is no award.

You should always have a written agreement with the attorney about the fees. Further, make sure you fully understand what you are going to be charged for – like copies and phone calls.

Many people want to know if the attorney can get the fees from the opposing party. The answer is relatively simple – probably not! There are very few instances where the opposing party will be required to pay your attorneys fees. In the rare case where it happens, it will come as a reimbursement at the end of the case for what you have already paid.

If you are a person of very modest or low income, you may contact the nearest legal aid office to see whether you qualify for free legal services. If criminal law is involved, you may be entitled to have the judge over your case appoint a lawyer to represent you.

What Qualifies as Parental Kidnapping / Abduction ?


Source: Houston Divorce Blog

While parental kidnapping laws vary from state to state, two main factors determine whether a parent’s act qualifies as parental kidnapping:

  1. The status of child custody
  2. A parent’s motives in taking a child away from the other parent

Child custody status

Texas law criminalizes anyone (including a parent) who takes a child knowing that he or she is violating a child custody order. If you are the parent with custody over your child, the child’s other parent cannot do anything that violates the terms of your custody order. Also a parent may not move a child out of the judicial district area if he or she knows that a custody case is currently pending without seeking the permission of the court. Finally, Texas law makes it illegal for non-custodial parents to entice or persuade their children to leave the custodial parent or anyone else acting in that capacity.

For parents who would legitimately like to move, they have to petition the court with jurisdiction over the child custody case. This petition gives the non-custodial parent a chance to oppose the move. While the petition is pending, an act of the non-custodial parent to take the child away to avoid the move would be parental kidnapping.

The motives of a parent taking a child

If no child custody order is in place, the law generally assumes that both parents have equal rights to care for and spend time with their children. Brief trips and vacations with the child – even out of state – can be lawful assuming that the parent taking the child did so in good faith. Parents may not, however, take a child to hide him or her from the other parent or to terrorize the other parent. Many states, including Texas, criminalize this type of intent where one parent maliciously uses the child against the other parent.

Have you been involved in a parental kidnapping case? How were the courts able to help secure the return of your child?

Reunite has 47% increase in parental abduction calls


Child Abduction charity reunite has reported a 47% increase in calls to its advice line regarding children being abducted between jurisdictions by parents. 70% of abducting parents reported were children’s mothers.

Reunite’s Acting Director, Alison Shalaby, said:

“It is concerning that we have seen such a large increase in the number of children abducted, especially as we know this is just the tip of the iceberg – many cases go unreported either to ourselves or government departments.

“There are many reasons why a parent may abduct their child. For some it may be a deliberate act to deny the other parent contact, for others there may be sociological or economic factors, or in some instances a parent may abduct their child out of fear for the child´s safety. Whatever the reason, parental child abduction causes real harm to children who potentially suffer great emotional trauma by suddenly being ripped away from all they know and being denied contact with their left-behind parent and extended family.

“For the left-behind parent the shock and loss are unimaginable and they face unfamiliar legal, cultural and linguistic barriers when seeking the return of their child.”

If you have concerns that a child may be abducted, there are steps you can take to prevent this from happening, including alerting the authorities at places people can travel out of the country, and seeking a court order preventing a parents from removing children from the country.

Parental abduction in Japan – Child-snatchers


Source: The Economist

A dark side to family life in Japan

THIS Christmas Moises Garcia, a Nicaraguan living in America, got the gift he had spent almost four years and $350,000 fighting for: the return of his nine-year-old daughter. In 2008 Karina was whisked away to Japan by her Japanese mother. He set about fighting in the Japanese courts for the right to see her. During that period, he met her only three times. Their longest meeting lasted for only two hours.

Then he had a stroke of luck. Last April Karina’s mother travelled to Hawaii to renew her green card. She was arrested at the airport and charged with violating Karina’s custody agreement. As part of a plea bargain, the mother relinquished Karina, who became the first child seized by a Japanese parent to be returned to America via the courts. (Feel sorry for Karina, in the middle of this tug-of-love.)

Because of such cases, America is one of many countries that has pressed Japan to honour its promise to join the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. Japan proposes to do so this year. The convention sets rules for the prompt return to their normal country of residence of children under 16 who have been abducted by one of their parents. The State Department says Japan has about 100 such cases involving children of Americans. There are scores from other countries, too.

But for one category of parents—those living in Japan without access to their children—the Hague convention changes nothing. When parents separate, Japan’s legal system does not recognise the joint custody of children common in other jurisdictions. Instead, children are put into the custody of a single parent after divorce. The family courts usually grant custody to the parent, most often the mother, who at that particular moment is in possession of the child—even if the parent has abducted him. The courts rarely enforce the stingy visitation rights of the “left-behind” parent. And so many fathers, in particular, vanish altogether from their children’s lives. Every year as many as 150,000 divorced parents in Japan lose contact with their children, according to estimates gleaned from official data. Some do so of their own accord, but most have no say in the matter.

One such father, an ex-deputy mayor, describes the system as a conjugal version of the prisoner’s dilemma. He says that when a marriage starts to break down, the unspoken question is: who will seize the child first, the mum or the dad? In his case, she did. For two years he has had no contact with his four-year-old daughter—even his presents are returned unopened—and all with the blessing of the family court. When he reminded the judge that the civil code had been changed to encourage visitation rights, the judge silenced him.

Satsuki Eda, who as justice minister last year pushed through the change in the civil code, says he hopes it will lead to more generous visitation rights. It may, he also hopes, one day lead to a serious consideration of joint custody. But, he cautions, judges are conservative, finding it “very difficult to change their minds”. And so, in a cruel twist, a country that has long sought redress for the past abduction of a few dozen citizens by the North Korean state tacitly supports vast numbers of abductions each year at home. “Many people in my situation commit suicide,” the estranged father says. “I can understand the feeling.”

Clinton urges Japan to take action on child abduction issue


Source: Japan Today

WASHINGTON —

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday pressed for action on the abductions of half-American children by their estranged Japanese partners.

Speaking to reporters after meeting Japanese Foreign Minister Koichiro Gemba, Clinton said she “urged that Japan take decisive steps so that is accedes to the Hague Convention on International Parental Child Abduction and address outstanding cases.”

Japan is the only member of the Group of Eight industrialized powers that it not part of the 1980 convention that requires countries to return wrongfully held children to their countries of usual residence.

Mindful of international criticism, Japan has agreed in principle to sign the Hague treaty. But the move would only apply to future cases and not to the more than 120 ongoing cases in which US parents are seeking children in Japan.

Japanese courts virtually never award custody to foreign parents.

Vater packt über Motive der Kinder-Entführung aus


Der Vater der vier entführten Kinder aus der Lüneburger Heide hat bei der Justiz erstmals über seine Motive für die monatelange Flucht nach Afrika ausgepackt.

Der Mann sagte den Ermittlern, er sei mit dem Lebens- und Erziehungsstil seiner Ehefrau nicht einverstanden gewesen. Deswegen habe er seine vier Kinder, für die er kein Sorgerecht mehr hatte, ins Ausland gebracht.

„Er war auch mit der religiösen Erziehung durch die Mutter nicht einverstanden“, sagte Staatsanwalt Lars Janßen der Nachrichtenagentur dpa am Freitag in Celle. Ursprünglich habe der Vater geplant, mit den Geschwistern nach Griechenland zu flüchten, teilten die Ermittler mit. Dies habe der 37-Jährige dann aber verworfen, weil ihm die Gefahr einer Entdeckung dort zu groß erschienen sei.

Stattdessen war der 37-Jährige mit den Kindern mehr als vier Monate in Ägypten untergetaucht.

Vor rund zwei Wochen war er in Kairo entdeckt und festgenommen worden. Zwischenzeitlich hielt er sich mit den Geschwistern im Alter zwischen vier und neun Jahren auch im Sudan auf. Dort sei es ihm aber zu risikoreich erschienen, so dass er mit den Geschwistern nach Ägypten zurückkehrte.

In Kairo wohnte der Mann nach Angaben der Staatsanwaltschaft in einem nahezu ausschließlich von Ägyptern bewohnten Stadtteil. Touristische Ziele habe er aus Angst vor einer Entdeckung bewusst vermieden, gab der Vater bei seiner Vernehmung zu Protokoll. Ägyptische Polizeibeamte hatten den Mann in einem Internet-Café in Kairo entdeckt.

Der 37-Jährige sitzt in Untersuchungshaft. Er muss sich vor Gericht wegen Kindesentziehung verantworten. Dieses Delikt kann mit bis zu zehn Jahren Haft bestraft werden – in weniger schwerwiegenden Fällen kann aber auch nur eine Geldstrafe verhängt werden. (dpa)
