Case Study
The article presents a case study of family in Scotland in which the husband wants his two eldest children with his previous marriage to live with him and his new partner. Anna McMillan, a senior practitioner with Scottish charity Circle, was approached by a local authority for a parenting assessment on this man who wanted his children to live with him. As both children suffer from attachment disorders, keeping them would be challenge for a carer.
