Hi,

You need to break this hole issue down, in doing so make it as small as
one can. 

Now the simple facts that must be stuck to are. 1. You haven't committed
any crime. 

2. Yes your daughter has, and she is going to admit her guilt without
any problems. 

3. You are a parent, and therefore standing by your own daughter as best
as you can. 

4. Your daughter although guilty is meeting all conditions layed down
for her to meet. 

Simply stick to those facts and take all emotion out of the situation,
and you'll find they don't have a leg to stand on,

Brent.

Subject: [bactttoma] Latest issue with Melton Shire.



 From Steven Taylor.

Everyone on this list will at  least know some of the recent events  
which have taken place, and the most serious of which I am not in the  
least responsible for committing.

Having said that, having produced all statements to those who actually  
needed to see, because there were plenty of sticky noses who don't,  
it's no surprise to find myself the subject of a fight launched by  
some "concerned parents" of people with a disability of a certain  
group I attend purely as a volunteer, not that I mind that, but these  
"concerned parents" well, they're making some loud noises.

You can't allow this man to attend this group, he's unsafe.  Our son/ 
daughter is in danger.  Our son/daughter can't always express their  
feelings about what they're hearing.

Well, not that they are hearing a lot, but of course, you can count on  
it that parents are showing others any newspaper articles about at  
least one recent event, no surprises there.

What is worse is the Melton Shire is starting to listen to all of this  
stuff, most of which is not true if they cared to read the statements,  
but unfortunately, this looks like one of these situations where  
Melton Shire will have no other choice but to kindly say, sorry  
Steven, you can't attend this particular group any more.

I attend 2 groups, but only parents of one group are "concerned"  it  
seems the other group is happy for me to continue, but how long before  
the concerned parents of the one group get on to the parents of the  
other one is a question which nobody can answer.

For my part, I love attending both groups, it's a pity as the group of  
parents which is pushing me out is the group I am closest too, not  
just the activities which I thoroughly enjoy, but the kind people who  
do all sorts of things I never ask for, because volunteers are not  
allowed to ask a group member for anything outside of the group, and  
fair enough too.

I never joined either group for anything, all I wanted to do is  
volunteer, I attended the formal training, got asked to join both  
groups, I was extremely happy to do so, and I love the challenge of  
helping others I consider less fortunate than myself.

To give you a general idea, the group where the parents are trying to  
have me pushed out is made up of adults, some with more than one  
disability, most living with caring parents, most stuck at home apart  
from an occasional group activity, some of them extremely hard to  
accommodate because of transport issues etc.

It's hard not to have some pity for these people, because if their  
parents should pass away, god only knows where they will be  
accommodated, some  of the adults are under 40, but will likely end up  
in full time nursing care which means even less activities for them in  
some cases.

I guess that I'll  have to do whatever the Melton Shire decides I  
guess, I don't see any other way they can handle this issue and  
believe me, they have been working extremely hard to defend me in  
regards to these matters.

I won't give up, I remain committed to both groups until I am politely  
asked otherwise.

Steven.
