I have requested that Marilyn Stowe does a blog post on supervision as it has been my experience that supervision is used by resident parents to minimise contact and I think it''s an under-discussed topic.
One of the blog writers has emailed back asking for my experiences of supervision and the experiences of anyone else I know.
I have read on this forum about fathers who have had supervised contact for a variety of reasons including allegations of drug abuse, violence against children, mental health difficulties, prolonged absence from the child''s life and a lack of basic parenting skills. I''ve yet to hear personally from any mothers who have had supervised contact but I''m certain that it happens so if you are a mother who would like to share your experiences then feel free.
If you''ve got any experiences of supervised contact that you don''t mind sharing then please let me know either as a reply or PM. I intend to reply no later than tomorrow morning.
