I've seen a lot of things in my 10 years of working with disadvantaged young people but I've never seen anything that best sums up how some people should never be parents.
A young lady, aged 16, walks in and in her hand she is clutching a typed letter, it is from her parents and they have addressed it to their daughter and it said that she has consistently broken house rules and that they would like her to leave the family home as soon as possible.
It was signed by both parents under the heading: "Yours sincerely" and "Wishing you all the best for future".
I don't ever want to understand how a parent could've sat down and typed that, or what they must have felt like when they signed it and worst of all, I have no comprehension of what it must feel like to be so fundamentally rejected by your parents.
This is the world we make.
