Children removed for co-sleeping?

I find it very hard to believe that this is the reason the children were removed, but that is what is reported.  If there is some other reason that the authorities in Norway want to keep confidential that I understand and respect ... but then why give reasons of co-sleeping and hand-feeding as evidence of improper child care and grounds for removing the children from their parents (while the younger one was still breastfeeding)?

 

Highly disturbing ....

This was already discussed in activism. 

 

Being from Northern Europe, where co-sleeping is no big deal, I do not believe for a moment that this is why the kids were taken. The family can report whatever they wish. The social workers cannot talk freely about the case...

Here is an interesting article from Professor Marianne Haslev Skanland
The iron hand that rocks the cradle

The article is quite scathing:  "The CPS, in order to have work, wants children and they attack anybody who is vulnerable. That means mostly poor people, Norwegians as well as foreigners, because they are helpless to defend themselves."

Being from Europe myself I also find it hard to believe that was the only reason.
