All of this. All the time!!
Safe boundaries are the only solution to Gaslighting. The only issues is, I’ve heard a number of parents this week who, when using safe boundaries with professionals have then been threatened with social services or the EWO and fines.
It’s reminds me of domestic abuse in that way, as many abusers keep their victim quiet by shaming them and convincing them that if they tell anyone Social services will take their kids.
I do have a hope for a world where Social services could be the place to turn to, rather than the weapon used against us.
