Postby koolcat » Wed Nov 23, 2011 11:50 am

what is the purpose of a tdm meeting if without any new allegation an administrative decision by one can overule all of the signaturesfrom the entire panel yu sit with to come up with a case plan can be changed by that one administrator ? if thats the case why isnt that person there for the tdm ? and why does my signature bind me , but dcps unit doesnt have to follow that same rule isnt that illegal .... all i kno is i hope i can find an attorney that can help me sue the crap out of this dept and make a positive change for families like mine in the future cause this is wrong !

I know, it's very frustrating that accused parents have to follow the law, but government bureaucrats can make it all up as they go along. I wish you success with your lawsuit.

Although officially TDM's mean Team Decision Meeting. Due to my experiences I consider them to be To Attack, Demean, Manage (as in control) sessions!

Good one Eljay! Yes, that about describes them! The 2 I had personal experience with left me feeling like the lowest piece of crap! Yes, they make a big thing about, "we're not here to attack anyone, blahblahblah,..." Bullshit!

I was only involved by phone, not allowed inside, which shows how important I was to the team. I simply announced my objections where appropriate.
Like any other action, it will be used to further the CPS narrative, regardless of your words.
They get to help each other rationalize what they are doing by surrounding themselves with people that agree; and fulfill a requirement of the process while doing so.
