An emergency care order was granted and the Child and Family Agency were now seeking an interim care order.The presiding judge was given a brief outline of the history surrounding the case and the basis on which the Child and Family Agency were applying for the care order.The young girl’s family had a history, which was known to the agency, of issues surrounding hygiene and neglect.The social worker said that the teenage girl has a “mild learning disability” and that there were “huge concerns surrounding her capacity to consent to sexual intercourse”.The interim care order was granted after the Judge heard that the father of the child was not known but a paternity test was to be carried out as soon as possible.The girl and her child are in separate foster care environments but the court heard that the girl had spent some time with her child. The baby was born at full term and was in good health.The matter was adjourned to allow the HSE apply to extend the period of emergency care and seek a supervision order.

Five mistakes women make when trying to find Mr. Right.

first_img 137 Views   no discussions Share Sharing is caring! LifestyleRelationships Five mistakes women make when trying to find Mr. Right. by: – April 14, 2011 Tweetcenter_img Share Share The bar scene, speed dating, online dating. If you’re single and looking for a man, you have probably tried all of these things.After a while, it can seem as if all the good guys are taken and you are doomed to a life of microwave meals for one and reading sappy novels for a romance fix.The longer you are single, the more impossible you may think it is to find the right man. Before you give up forever, make sure that you aren’t making mistakes in your approach to finding Mr. Right.Creating the “perfect” man who doesn’t existThis is one of the most common reasons women remain single. There is absolutely nothing wrong with knowing what you want in a guy, but if you have got your heart set on a perfect man you will be sorely disappointed. You don’t have to lower your standards but you must be realistic. Remember that everyone is flawed, and focus on the things you like about a potential partner instead of the things you don’t.Acting as if you are desperateDo you throw yourself at every man who looks at you? If so, you could be giving the impression that you will settle for anyone. Another mistake you may be making is spending a lot of time on your Facebook profile, complaining about how you wish you had a boyfriend. Just because you are among friends, it doesn’t mean there isn’t someone on your friends list who might be interested in you. Unfortunately, he will run a mile if he thinks that you are simply looking for “a” man rather than “the” man.Trying to rush things alongIt’s a great feeling when you meet a wonderful guy after a long search. However, if you plan on keeping him, it is important to remember to take things slowly. Don’t let your eagerness to settle down ruin what could have been an amazing relationship. Trying to move yourself into his apartment or discussing having children when you have only been dating for a month will only scare him away.Not realizing your own self worthYou have probably heard this a thousand times, but you won’t find a guy who sees how fantastic you are if you can’t see it yourself. Don’t let being single damage your self-esteem because it won’t make the situation any better.Have you ever noticed that when you have a boyfriend, other men start to take an interest in you? It isn’t because they want what they can’t have, it’s because you look happy and secure in yourself. Men are always attracted to women who are comfortable with who they are.Being too worried about your single statusBelieve me, I am familiar with the panic of being single. Up until a few months ago, I was in the exact same position. It wasn’t until I calmed down and realized that stressing about not having a boyfriend wouldn’t make me find one any faster, that Mr. Right came along. I am not a believer that you will find a boyfriend if you stop looking. But if you stop worrying about it, it is a lot easier because you aren’t pinning your hopes on the first guy who looks your way.There is no escaping it –finding Mr. Right is hard work. But once you relax and learn to appreciate who you are and what you already have, your ideal man will find his way to you. Accept that it won’t happen overnight, but make small changes and you will soon find yourself inundated with offers from eligible bachelors!By Karen SandersYahoo Shinelast_img read more
