Should the boys have been visiting Josh Powell? Joy Silberg, a psychologist who specializes in child protection and abuse cases, says courts often place more value on parental rights than a child’s safety – or see them as equal concerns, when in her view, the parental rights should be secondary. “I have situations where the child has disclosed very clear disclosures about a parent, or terror at being near a parent … and the judge still orders a child to go [to visitation] because the parental right is seen as having so much more power,” says Dr. Silberg. While she doesn’t know all the facts of the Powell case, she adds, “it’s hard for me to believe that this was completely out of the blue and that no one knew he was this destructive. People usually leave clues.”http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/2012/0...ty-Should-boys-have-been-visiting-Josh-Powell I'm not a Christian Scientist, but I think this article is bringing up a lot of the same issues that we've been questioning in the threads.
