Ofsted states “Restraint of any kind can have a negative impact on a child’s mental health[footnote 2] and damage relationships between children and those who care for them.”
I wonder therefore why they tolerate it when children are forcefully removed from loving homes at 7 am or earlier and their mobile phones and laptops (for older children) are confiscated thus isolating them from family and friends.Such “restraint” is not only tolerated but actively encouraged by social services despite the humane stance taken publicly by Ofsted.

nothing about the use of pharmaceutical restraints? my eldest is back home after forced adoption, she can tell you all about how she was forcibly drugged with antipsychotics and other mind bending drugs to pacify her, just because she wanted to return home. she also told of how as a child she was chased down by a group of ss lackeys and one of them sat on her chest, and couldn’t breathe. she’s off all the drugs now, and her mental health has improved, but the trauma will be with her for life. where is support for children and families that are going through this never ending trauma? there’s plenty of support for fake families, but nothing for the victims of forced adoption.
I’m so sorry to hear about this. If your daughter wants to share her story, she’s very welcome to get in touch. I’m glad she’s feeling better.
