In desperation, Erik and Lisa approached a public health nurse admitting they sometimes used a smack on their difficult and strong-willed young daughter. With no previous record with CYF, they ended up with their daughters in care and a police investigation. This great law-abiding loving family was traumatised! They were given a ‘critical’ rating – the same given if a child has cigarette burns or is raped or has broken bones. The Latta review made the family sound like an abusive troubled family that somehow got away with it. The review even said that one of the daughters was sexually abused and the parents were aware of it – a complete and utter lie.After 4 years and the intervention of the Privacy Commissioner, CYF finally accepted and entered into permanent record a staggering two and a half pages of corrections on their file. Erik and Lisa are still fighting to have incorrect facts about their family in the Latta Review corrected.
