Stolen Childhood

Stolen Childhood

“Stolen Childhood” is a must read for anyone who is concerned about the violation of children’s rights. Featuring commentary from prominent Norwegian lawyers, psychologists, medical professionals and teachers, the practices revealed in these pages will shock you to the core. Stolen Childhood tells the terrifying stories of families who have had their children removed by Norway’s child welfare service (NCWS).

The book shines a light on the questionable motives behind the emergency takeovers that are destroying so many lives, which often lead to abuse, relationship breakdown, addiction and even suicide. It explores the ideology that has given NCWS such power and the cultural conditions that enable it to act without accountability.

Join the thousands of people around the world who are standing up against this hidden scandal. It’s time to tell NCWS that enough is enough, to demand that our children be set free.

 


 

Praise for „STOLEN CHILDHOOD“:

 

“A must-read for those who are concerned about the dangerous and deliberate erosion of children and family rights in today’s legal culture.”

JERZY KWAŚNIEWSKI, ATTORNEY AND PRESIDENT OF INSTITUTE FOR LEGAL CULTURE ORDO IURIS (“LEGAL ORDER”)

* * *

“Excellently done! Stolen Childhood maps out the terrifying horror that many children, mothers and fathers have experienced in Norway, including our family. The grotesque use of the term ‘in the best interest of the child’ has become a euphemism for ‘overlooking children’s rights and destroying able and caring families’.”

INEZ ISABEL ARNESEN, MOTHER AND HUMAN RIGHTS ADVOCATE

* * *

“A timely and necessary book that champions children’s needs while exposing a system that continually overlooks them.”

SURANYA AIYAR, MOTHER, LAWYER AND AUTHOR

* * *

“Well-researched, intensive and alarming. Systemic abuse and human rights violations by Norway’s Barnevernet are meticulously exposed.”

DR. CHRIS PRUNEAN, PHYSICIAN AND MUSICIAN

* * *

“A masterly collection of essays, stories, testimonies and quotes, with a thoughtful opinion that provides insight into Norway’s child welfare services.”

JAN AAGE TORP, PASTOR AND PRESIDENT OF EUROPEAN APOSTOLIC LEADERS (EAL)

* * *

“Cleverly weaved together, unbeknown that you are walking through the process that leads to the removal, separation and destruction of the child and the family unit.”

TRINE OVERÅ HANSEN, JOURNALIST AT IDAG AND TV HOST AT VISJON NORGE

* * *

“I’m delighted to see the authors and contributors bring their special skills together to show the world the truth. Ignore this book at your peril.”

DR. DANIELA MARIŞ, PSYCHIATRIST

* * *

“A remarkable book that poignantly shows what happens when a country creates ‘inferior groups’ and rallies the hangers-on for their support.”

MARGARET HENNUM, PAEDIATRIC NURSE

* * *

“Our people have succumbed en masse to the belief that children’s rights are adhered to in Norway. We need to remove the blinkers and stop needlessly putting families through terrifying trials that lead to disastrous consequences for children and their families.”

BERIT AARSET, NURSE, FOSTER MOTHER AND LEADER OF HUMAN RIGHTS ALERT – NORWAY (HRA-N)

* * *

“In Stolen Childhood an articulate and factual case is made on why the Norwegian child welfare service should be thoroughly investigated from top to bottom, disbanded and started anew.”

* * *

“An important book that proves that there is a case for Norway to answer.”

PREBEN KLØVFJELL, LAWYER AT NORWEGIAN LAW FIRM TVETER AND KLØVFJELL

“A fair and accurate account of the Norwegian child welfare service. It is not out of control; it follows the course the government and the politicians have decided.”

RUBY HARROLD-CLAESSON, LAWYER AND PRESIDENT OF THE NORDIC COMMITTEE FOR HUMAN RIGHTS

* * *

“The systematic violation of children and family rights is real, and it is happening today in my country, Norway.”

“If you thought you knew everything about Norway’s Child Welfare System, then read Stolen Childhood. Stolen Childhood has received much praise from those I have sent it to, both in Norway and the Czech Republic. It’s an extremely well written and thought provoking book, that provides an excellent insight into the gruesome happenings in today’s child welfare service in Norway. Every parent, church and library should have a copy of Stolen Childhood and take heed, these types of state sanctioned removals of children are becoming more and more common outside of Norway as well, as Norwegian influence around the world starts to take effect.”

JAN SIMONSEN, NORWEGIAN MP FROM 1989 TO 2005, AND MEMBER OF THE PARLIAMENTARY ASSEMBLY OF THE COUNCIL OF EUROPE (PACE), WHERE HE SAT ON THE COMMITTEE ON LEGAL AFFAIRS AND HUMAN RIGHTS

* * *

“Instead of listening to all the lies from the Norwegian authorities – please read Stolen Childhood. Everyone knows Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, but could you imagine living in that upside-down world? Stolen Childhood takes you deep inside the upside-down world of Norway’s calamitous child welfare system, a terrifying world that I live in.”

ANITA SKIPPERVIK, NORWEGIAN MOTHER AND HUMAN RIGHTS ADVOCATE

* * *

Stolen Childhood is a critical review of how Norwegian children’s rights are neglected by the government and the courts, and how childcare legislation really operates against children and families.”

OLAV TERJE BERGO, FORMER EDITOR-IN-CHIEF AND CEO AT BERGENSAVISEN (BA) FROM 1984 TO 2009. BERGO WAS A BOARD MEMBER OF THE EUROPEAN NATIONAL PUBLISHERS ASSOCIATION (ENPA) FROM 2001 TO 2006 AND WAS ON THE BOARD OF THE WORLD ASSOCIATION OF NEWSPAPERS (WAN)
