Mother loses custody of children

Mother loses custody of children

A mother who did not discipline her children and adopted a “very permissive style of parenting” has lost custody of her two sons.  The court heard she was “more like a friend than a parent” to her sons, whose behaviour towards adults showed a “lack of discipline”.  Judge Laura Harris said: “I consider the mother’s parenting permissive, and, although the court must be tolerant of different standards of parenting, I consider the permissive parenting in this case has caused the children harm.”
