A couple was just sentenced to 5 months in jail here in Denmark. They had what they believed a daughter suffering from ADHD and tried to control her in their home. They removed all her belongings. It didn't work. They beat her. They locked her in a dog cage. They gave her work sheets in their garden in the middle of the night - even during the winter without proper clothes. Still it didn't work. While they were both professionals (The wife a nurse and and the husband a child care worker employed working with at-risk teens) they overlooked that they broke the law. Corporal punishment is illegal even if it is the parents who are doing it. It has been so for more than 10 years. So they ended up in prison and the daughter were removed a year ago before the investigation and the trial. They were allowed to keep a 4 year old son until now because placing a child outside the home is expensive and they tax-payers are paying more than 50 percent in tax and 25% of each penny spent in shops. After several appeals he was removed yesterday. None understand why they decided to treat her themselves because we have a rather good standard inside our DSS and after being removed from the home the girl was examinated. She is NOT suffering from ADHD according to specialists. Awful and wierd case.
