First, let’s understand the cost of doing nothing.
A grandmother in Florida had a suspicion “something was very wrong” with her daughter and her relationship.
Imagine for just a few moments. Would you be very forgiving if you knew something was wrong and you had no rights no way to intervene?
For any parent/grandparent – being helpless to save your child and her children.
Many people immediately blame the woman being abused. Sure, it’s easy to make judgements about things we don’t understand. Please, open your mind to the FACT a woman with confidence and all “the will” on Earth can and does find herself “isolated”, then emotionally broken down by her abusive partner and eventually the emotional abuse and control turn violent.
Personally, it would simply break down all hope for me if I was helpless. The nightmare no grandparent should ever face knowing their child is being harmed, then knowing our grandchildren are being harmed too?
Could you even imagine the horror?
Nothing compares to being without anyway to respond nor any way to protect the innocent grandchildren.
This grandmother in Florida lives her nightmare every day knowing she was helpless and because grandparents have no rights, she lost her daughter and her grandchildren. The abuser killed her daughter and her grandchildren.
In any situation where domestic violence is concerned we must assume the children are harmed when they are forced to watch a parent abused by another parent. The children must be allowed to go with their grandparents before strangers.
The opportunity in having “the Rights of a grandparent” forces the abuser to be much more subtle about the degree of abuse children witness.
A primary benefit of the concept of grandparent rights ensures the children are not removed and placed with strangers. The foster care system must support the transition to grandparents just as it would support a stranger to care for the children. The same issues will exist and often grandparents are not in a position to financially support the child(ren).
Legislation must be written and passed to support grandparent rights.
A grandparent rights approach allows the law to guide the inclusion of grandparents.
Systems which allow grandparents an objective forum to warrant temporary placement away from the abuse
Preventing grandparents from abusing their rights must be considered and safeguards put in place to prevent such threats.
Mentor support networks
Train both parents to be partners in healthy and realistic roles where both parents respect and treat each other fairly.
- Private forums where both parents are able to have visibility into education, medical and financial care
A risk for the child in all cases, when two adults are unable to put their own feelings aside for the best interest of their child is a risk for the child. Irrespective of the reason, no parent should be unable to separate the interest of the child above their own interest. In some cases, the problem is more about the new partners insecurity or expectations.
- Parentage Rights and Responsibility
- Preventing rather than promoting – False Accusations
Perhaps rapid family court models
- Grandparents as a support and safety system for children
A grandmother in Florida had a suspicion something was very wrong with her daughters relationship and was left no options and no rights. The woman was left with the bitter taste of helplessness as she buried her daughter and grandchildren.
The scenario appears to be a unique or something beyond the woman’s control. I assure you, having rights established for all grandparents is a safety net for the children. A parent being abused is slowly backed into a corner and often the person has no idea they are being groomed for a life of abuse. The only way to protect some children will be to through a mechanism where the grandparent and children are allowed the bond an abuser cannot control. The opportunity in having “the Rights of a grandparent” forces the abuser to be much more subtle about the degree of abuse children witness.
A primary benefit being the rights of the grandparent as unavoidable and non-negotiable without the legal system. Specifically, the elimination of such rights must be difficult and formal.
Well outside the abusers ability to control.
Grandparents Rights as an intervention and prevention mechanism
Creating the role of grandparents in the child’s life allows a subtle presence allowed by law when a woman is pushed into isolation by an abusive partner.
In the same context a role for fraternal grandparents when a female is the abuser.
Domestic Violence has many forms and the disturbing trend around female abusers is a no win situation for a man.
Whether the abuse is of the mental form or physical form has little bearing on the children. Abuse in any form is an unhealthy scenario and one where most crisis are born.
Abusive partners are determined to eliminate any interference from anyone close to the person being prepared for abuse.
Partners who harm are predictable and religious about the isolation stage.
The abuser will often accuse the person of not being sane or thinking irrational and isolation protects them from what others will say or do.
Early warning signs are the breakdowns in family relationships or loyalty test.
Who means more to you?
I can’t love someone who doesn’t put our relationship first.
These people are just trying to hurt us and our love.
A grandparent rights approach allows the law to guide the inclusion of grandparents.
-having rights as a grandparent breaks down the first layer of isolation
Powerful words from a parent who lost a child in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.
“According to the 2011-12 National Survey of Children’s Health, nearly half of America’s children will have suffered at least one childhood trauma before the age of 18. They need your love.”
Design for the rule, protect and prevent.
If we follow the approach and understand that when we design something, especially in relationship with kids we must assume the following;
Here’s my argument with an understanding that I am a proven innovation expert. Not bragging, rather qualifying my ability to speak on innovation.
Why Big Data isn’t about financial and operational data?
The type used to run the business during transactional events used to report revenue or on expenses. In the public sector we refer to this type of data as cost and benefits.
Financial Transactions by stakeholder dependency across the life of the activities. Each output becomes the input to the next process stakeholder with a record as an output. The record retention requirements for financial transactions typically is 7 years or more.
Today, we are trying very hard to not include these points to avoid this issue with compliance or another which sends up read flags with security.
What’s my cure for these types dilemma’s? I eliminate or move the threats vectors to their rightful home. Big Data isn’t the system of record for financial management capabilities, nor the home for the party or offer management capabilities. For the same reason, a single copy of the expense and revenue transaction capability results are protected within a data store.
How does the suggestion help solve the problems with security, governance and compliance? The 5 capabilities are operational and the foundation of any companies business management system. The scope for Sarbanes Oxley and all regulatory reporting. Record retention requirements with zero data loss and zero down time are all part of the scope.
IF we scale the operational and financial information back to their system of record, integrity of the financial records and retention is not going to hinder the objectives of a big data solution. The technology and requirements are only a problem in regard to the financial and operational processing moving to a big data store.
A great example being records management outside the technology designed to retain records for an organization or agency. The management of data derived from a record is not going to attain the right retention treatment when converted back to a data expert in a data store.
Gary Mazzaferro supplied this template to the Reference Architecture team in NIST Big Data Work Groups in the first phase of NIST development on the subject.
A horizontal segmentation of inbound from source using 1 of 3 types of feeds over a network connection an API requires an ACL or similar connection.
The segmentation within the data mart section allows each functional group to own their connections and sharing with external parties based on the containment of the authorized users within the data mart for each function. Rather than rely on offline tickets which are merely rubber stamps without the integrity of the segregation of duties requirement and intent continues to be lost in the translation between IT and Business.
In the private sector we have an option to include the 2nd horizontal data as segmented by types and use in most organizations across the world. Most businesses are not integrating their voice, video, and data and when they are we can assume streaming (real time) feeds or unstructured in column 1 or column 3.
Column 2 Operational (see above)
Column 4 Fit for purpose anything goes information we all know and most peoples desires are in their data marts.
The requirements we hear about are best segmented by the groupings identified as the grouping will manage access and allow containment when sharing beyond the organization in a shared cloud scenario. Marketing allows other marketing stakeholders to access their information.
We want to avoid situations where marketing grants access to operations data without operations having anything to do with the decision.
The real world assumes fact based sources and actual dimensions for example zip codes are fact based and actual dimensions are related to the zip code.
If we acquire information from the Census Buruea we have acquired “facts”. If we acquire information from a report, we are acquiring a sponsored report which will reflect the views of the person sponsoring the report. Certainly some reports are derived by people who intend to acquire facts, although the scope and facts are limited to the views and understanding of the people performing the work.
The report sponsored by anyone whether private or public sector and regardless of the people performing the work, the results must be assumed as “Fit for Purpose”. The world has taken on this assumption about the viability of a any successful company as an example; people believe the company requires fit for purpose above the Real World in all scenarios.
However, we know that most companies are in silo’s and this introduces significant waste in an organization. Therefore, fit for purpose is not the best approach it is an acceptable approach if the business and management systems are tightly integrated away from fit for purpose layer.
These two terms were introduced to me by an expert blogger Jim Harris via a Radio Show he hosted with a guest speaker who framed the conversation in the same way with different examples.
Let’s consider the external stakeholders, shareholders, investors and regulatory requirements for any company would need to be working by Real World definitions. We might have very strategic ways of supplying both with little disruption in most cases.
The approach would restore systems with leverage points and feedback looks at the places where both suppliers and customers interact with an organization and employees in ways that could be determined by each company, knowing these are vital to the companies quality management systems.
Enabling discreet monitoring and fact based decision making using the highway analogy.
