Families

While parents do not always stay together, it is critical for children’s mental health that they learn to co-parent, so children have a secure, happy childhood. Parents can so this on their own or with the support of a therapist or mediator. SACCAR believes that 50-50 co-parenting should be the default position in parenting agreements. This will alleviate many issues for children and their parents

Community

Many problems children and communities experience, such as bullying, depression, violence and suicide, are as a result of a refusal to co-parent and keeping a child away from their parent or family. Communities play a key role in supporting co-parenting, and advocating against child alienation, and parenting alienation as domestic violence. It takes a village to raise a child. (African proverb).

Psycho-Social Legal System

While the support of professionals can be necessary, the adversarial family law system is not geared towards the best interest of the child. Parents spend money that they should be investing into the wellbeing of their child. SACCAR believes healthy, equitable arrangements regarding children must be prioritised and violators of children’s rights to parents/families should be accountable.

'protecting children's rights, is a gift in itself'
