Placer County STEP program is ruining little childrens lives! Help me stand up for our children!

If you have been involved with the placer county STEP program and feel discrimintaed against or feel that either of the women in charge have been biased, one-sided, not considered your concerns for your child, or if you have had ANY problems, please address your thoughts, feelings, or any statements here. This is the main statement about the program on its website, and if you read it below and do not feel that the program has lived up to its standards, please, share your thoughts.

The Placer Superior Court STEP Program
A Placer First Five Program
The Placer Superior Court’s First Five Program for Parents experiencing high conflict child custody issues is a voluntary program for court-referred families in Placer County.
The STEP program offers a multi-faceted approach to provide services to families and specifically to children, ages 0-5, whose parents are experiencing high conflict child custody litigation in the Placer Superior Court.
The program offers families’ intensive case management, therapeutic court interventions, and community referrals to assist parents and children with the goal of learning how to co-parent and communicate more effectively. Parents are instructed in techniques on how to reduce the emotional abuse of their children by limiting their children’s exposure to their parental conflict. The brain development message is shared to help parents understand the importance of providing a nurturing environment for their children to grow up healthy.
This voluntary program has continually served approximately 60 families per year with children ages 0-5, since it began in 2001. The families reside throughout Placer County and are court referred initially for an assessment. A bi-lingual Case Coordinator assists the parents by monitoring compliance of case plans, facilitating agreements, tracking court orders, providing them with referrals to community resources such as co-parent coaching, supervised visitation services and the High Conflict Co-Parenting class. Children are observed and assessed by a Parenting Specialist using the established screening tool accepted by the First 5 partners.
Other services that the program sponsors for children are play therapy, counseling, and early intervention. The parents receive referrals to counseling, co-parent coaching, substance abuse treatment and assessments or drug testing, mental health assessments, and therapeutic court hearings. All participants in the STEP program attend the six-week co-parenting class for high conflict parents, which teach them to communicate and put their children’s needs first.
STEP upholds the premise that by offering intensive therapeutic services, the families are better able to put the needs of their children first, namely that conflicted parents would:
√ Learn effective skills of communication
√ Avoid behaviors which increase tension and conflict
√ Develop child centered behaviors
√ Create parenting plans that limit children’s exposure to conflict and unsafe environments and ultimately, develop the ability to successfully co-parent
OUTCOMES
√ Parents will demonstrate effective skills of communication, therefore learning how to cooperatively co-parent.
√ Parents will develop child-centered behaviors, which promote a nurturing environment for their children’s healthy development.
√ Parents will demonstrate a sustained ability to resolve parental conflict independent of the court and utilize community resources as needed.
Categories of services include:
√ Counseling, parent coaching, and parenting plan facilitation
√ Intensive case management, monitoring compliance with orders in the case plans, track court orders, provide quick access to the court, ensure referrals, accountability and court reviews
√ Co-parent education and collaboration with First 5 Partners such as Golden Sierra Life Skills, Peace for Families and the court’s Legal Help Center
√ Supervised visitation and exchanges to avoid dangerous behaviors from occurring in the presence of the children
√ Court ordered drug testing
The STEP program utilizes a bi-lingual (Spanish) Case Coordinator to provide the intensive case management required in high conflict families. By monitoring compliance with the orders drafted in the case plans, and providing community resources, parents are held accountable to seek and complete the court ordered services.
The Parenting Specialist evaluates and facilitates parenting plans and makes recommendations to the court when the parents have not reached their own agreements. The Parenting Specialist observes the parent-child interactions, visits the child’s home or school, if appropriate, conveys child development information and helps the parents build a co-parenting relationship.
Each parent must attend a six-week Co-Parenting Class held in Roseville one evening a week for two hours. Two licensed mental health professionals teach the Co-Parenting Class. These classes employ role-playing techniques, forgiveness exercises, and child focused materials on brain development. Should the parents need further interventions after completion of the class, they will be referred to Co-Parent Coaching to assist them with the new skills they have acquired.
For some parents and children to have a safe and healthy relationship, they may need to be referred to Supervised Visitation or Supervised Exchanges.
Supervised visitation allows the parents the opportunity to work towards a more equitable parenting plan with their children. In addition, Random Drug Testing provides parents with an opportunity to establish with the courts their intention to safely parent their child.
Therapeutic Oriented Court Hearings allow the STEP program to offer the parents consistency by having the same judge hear their case over time. A special court calendar takes place weekly to allow easy access to the court.
The strategies employed in the STEP program are built upon maintaining children’s attachments to both parents and avoiding exposure of young children to emotionally abusive behaviors in their home environment.
One Case Coordinator, a part time Parenting Specialist and a Program Support clerk are the primary staff for the STEP program.
The Case Coordinator, Program Support clerk, Parenting Specialist, and the Director of Family Court Services review and analyze the data to gauge the achievement of the outcomes of the program. This information is then used to create the reporting materials for the STEP Learning Conversations.
The Program Support clerk gathers the data for the State First 5 annual report. This staff member also monitors the program budget and insures accountability within the required First 5 parameters.
Judicial officers review the data and outcomes to provide feedback to the court administration.

  1. Let's just say that there are a number of women in Placer County that have a problem with these control freak demonic satanic ladies that work for the S T E P program: Christine Taylor Brown and Chris Trejo. They love to put innocent children right into the hands of their abusers. I personally know of 3 women that have dealt with this problem firsthand.

    If you are a woman stay away from this dung pile of a program. These women are so ignorant they fall for abusers charm like someone put cake in front of them. (If you saw them you would know what I mean) You have no chance from the get go.

    They hate women and I mean HATE women. They don't care about you, your opinions, your fears, your childrens well being, etc. These two witches have adopted the same belief system as your abusive ex your fighting with in court.

    These witches aren't smart enough to realize that the reason you are in a custody battle in the first place is the fact your ex is a lying, manipulating abuser that you are trying to protect your child from. They will ignore prior domestic violence, their alcoholic issues, their anger management issues, their drug addictions, any prior restraining orders you've had. They don't care about the children or you.

    These two women literally are the devil and I recommend to all women to stay away from them. Christine Taylor Brown is a mediator for the court as well. If the court appoints her to your case get her out of the picture asap.

    If you are in any way decent looking these two female dogs are jealous of you. I've seen it done to a number of my friends and their children as well.

    These two couldn't see the truth if a they got hit in their head with it.



    Look what they did to this poor Placer County baby:

    Christine Taylor Brown and Chris Trejo need to be sitting in jail for some of the things they've done.

    May God punish people like these two ladies for doing the works of the devil.

If you know of any other women tell them also. There is a lawyer looking for a group of women in these positions ready to rock Placer County. She has done it for other counties also. It's reform time. Certain people shouldn't have the jobs they have. Christine Taylor Brown is one of them.

  5. I had a similar experience with Christine Taylor Brown in my custody case. My ex was emotionally abusive towards myself and my children. He has been manipulating my 12 year old son and using him to stalk me. He has so emotionally brainwashed my son that it is causing severe damage to our relationship and his attitude toward women in general.

    In December of 2008, my ex screamed profanities at my son because he would not tell his father where I was and what I was doing. He then told my son he was going to kill me and my son called me histerically crying and frightened wanting to be picked up. Due to this incident and many others in the past (I already had a restraining order for previous death threats and stalking)I was awarded temporary sole custody of the children. After two months, their father was given supervised visits 4 hours per week. Two months later, he was given 25% custody. We returned to court in June 2009 and were sent to mediation with Christine Taylor-Brown. My ex brought our 12 year old son to court, coached him with accusations against me and he was allowed to speak with Christine. She determined that the allegations against me were true despite the fact that I had letters from my exes two adult children describing the horrible incidents and abuse they witnesses their father commit toward myself, my children and them (she refused to even look at the letters or speak with them). CPS also investigated the claims and dismissed the case because my son could not remember what he had said and later admitted that he lied because he was angry with me. My son was removed from my home and placed with my grandmother for 30 days until we returned to court. We saw Christine for mediation twice in the mean time and each time she refused to listen to anything I had to say and assumed that all allegations were true and told me I needed to go to anger management and parenting classes and learn to communicate with my ex. I am a very passive person, which is one of the reasons I remained in an abusive controlling relationship for 15 years, and I was shocked that despite remaining calm and even though my ex had screaming outburst in court and during mediation that I was being labeled the bitter one.

    It absolutely breaks my heart to see the destruction that is happening to so many families due to the lack of justice in the court system. I can't comprehend how the courts can jeapordize the health, safety, and well being of children even when presented with blatantly obvious evidence of abuse. My ex openly admitted in court that he threatened my life and shrugged it off as an every day occurence. He yelled at the judge numerous times. On top of that, his adult children from a previous marriage have no relationship with him and asked many times to speak on my behalf. Four of his six children refuse to have contact with him. This system desperately needs change. Our children deserve to have a voice and to be protected!

  11. Thank you for your input. I was about to contact the STEP program but after reading these postings I have changed my mine. The courts don't know the whole story behind any child custody battle and in Placer County they tend to give the non custodial parent too many rights. I wished I had stayed in Oregon where the courts can settle these matters in a matter of hours not days and side with the parent who has the proof in hand. I am so sorry that any parent who has used this program has had to go through these miseries. My heart goes out to you and your children. Now you know why there are groups of people that help mothers run with their children.

  13. I sure wish that the above posting was untrue. I would love more than anything to be a part of this cause. Christine Taylor Brown has completely ruined mine and my childrens lives. I have been involved in a custody battle in Placer County for the past 4 years. Started out with joint legal/physical custody, equal parenting time between both parents, shared holidays. I have since lost all custody of my children and am allowed one weekend a month, no overnights and Christmas Eve day as my only holiday. The first time we saw her back in 2005 when this all started, she acted all compassionatley towards both of us. Was even kind enough to hand me a tissue when I shed a tear during our meeting. Went as far as to pat me on the back as we were leaving, telling me "No worries, everything will be just fine." LOL!!! Return to court a week later to see her report for the first time while standing in front of the judge. In which she stated that "Mother appeared emotional during mediation appointment and not handling this litigation very well. Suspected drug abuse and/or mental issues." Hello....my ex husband was trying to move 2 hours away with my children after being divorced for 5 years and sharing custody...he has deep pockets and an aggressive attorney...neither of which I had...and the fact that I had a few moments during our meeting that I had to take a few deep breaths, wipe a single tear and do my best to remain calm shows possible drug abuse and mental instability??? Step ahead 3 years later when we are once again ordered for mediation with guess who.....CTB!!! I said absolutely not. Will go to whomever, where ever, pay for it if I need to, but no way. Of course, his attorney objected and the court ruled again that we visit this life wrecker. She arrived 30 minutes late, with a Starbucks in hand...hmmm, what would the judge think of me as a Mother had I arrived 30 mins late to a hearing with a Starbucks in hand? Once again, she pulled the "drug abuse" card and said that she would not recommend in my favor if I refused to randomly test for several months AGAIN. (I was ordered to undergo it for 6 months at my cost as a result of her first report back in 2005) and of course, they all came back negative. When I told her that I would not subject myself to peeing in front of a stranger again when there is not one single basis for it (I dont use drugs, never been convicted for drugs) she shrugged and said "Well obviously you have something wrong with you and/or you are hiding something if you refuse to do this for your children." Heck, I did it before and the end result was I paid out $2400 and lost custody of my children! I'm sure she didn't think I noticed the few times during our meeting that I would turn away to gather my thougts and words or even gather my emotions that I saw her winking at my ex. I could go on and on given that this has been an ongoing situation for the last 4 years. But nothing will change the fact that Placer County court has ripped me of my children and my children of their Mother and given them 100% to a man that while is not physically abusive, has lied time in time again in court, has brainwashed my daughter so badly against me that it takes me begging to get a kiss and hug from her at each visit when its been weeks since we've seen each other, she commonly refers to me by my first name rather than Mom and a son who while has not been so vulnerable to my ex's tactics, has been so torn in the middle that even at 10 years old, was defacating in his pants on a regular basis. Yes, my friends...this is Placer Countys idea of "whats the best interest of the children"

  14. sounds like you have a host of mental problems "December 7, 9:36PM". If you lost your kids from a drug test
    and refused to do it again its no wonder your child was taken from you.

    (by your own admission - Heck, I did it before and the end result was I paid out $2400 and lost custody of my children!)

    Winking? Laughable. in the best interests of the child is for parents to comply and obey all the courts ask of them to ensure the childs safety. Sounds like your kids are where they belong.

    1. I had Christine Taylor Brown as an evaluator. She is due to show up for cross examination in my case in March. She messed up big time in my case by NEVER giving me a copy of her evaluation. It was so poorly written, the judge wanted to throw it out and ignored it after a long affidavit I wrote. The judge even tried to get taken off the case. I made the evaluation available to my therapist who testified against the summary of what she wrote about her conversation with him.
      It was sent up to the judge and has 3 different reporting dates and my judge can't use it at all because of the legal mess she made.

    2. Julia Girl, I also had Christine Taylor Brown as a mediator and her recommendation was so ridiculously bias and did not reflect what we discussed at all. She is sloppy and incompetent. She had me waiting in the lobby for 30 min. before she came out and explained to me that she thought it was her "break hour". When emailing the CONFIDENTIAL recommendation to the parties involved, she mistakenly sent a copy to some miscellaneous person! Also, I explained to the judge that her office was in the same building as my ex's attorney which presented a huge conflict of interest. Although the judge assigned a new mediator, we are still ordered to comply with Christine's stupid recommendations...wanna swap notes?

  21. Am I the only person who here who thinks 1 of the "anon" is Christine Taylor Brown or her cohort you speak of? If they were successful, they would be in private practice. This fractured little sociopath is clearly sick (that is why many go into "psychology" Was I not the only person to see her fractured from the moment they meant her and she needs attention from any man she can get? I took psy 101 lol.
    Seriously I am signing my name. I hope you read this you demented pathetic sicko. You are a dangerous lazy slob. I actually don't know how you sleep at night or walk around without a bullet proof vest or helmet....huh...maybe I will wait on my name. BTW you pathetic lackey, I proved my ex to be the pathological liar he is in 5 minutes and your "expertise" was not used. Maybe, although doubtful, you might be figured out, and what would you do without taxpayer money? You are too much of a loser to make it on your own.

  23. This is actually really funny, anybody who talks about or slanders anyone else on the internet for one is immature and baisically a moron.... your writing on an internet blog to people who cant do anything about it, And i guess it takes a real big person to insult some online...see even I can do it and guess what you dont care. Secondly you shouldn't be blaming the program who is tryng to straighten your crap out, if you lose your children to an abuser its not the courts fault, its yours for marrying the loser or having a loser near your child in the first place and then losing your custodial rights to him so lets try to be adults and take responsibility. I say pop a midol and move on with your life. I would also say you should talk to the women which because of this program thier lives are so much better. I will say there is no such thing as perfection or fair but what i do know is that the intent of this program is to help parents to better thier families without involving our justice system like CPS or Prison or Foster families, Its like gettng a second chance after you have severly screwed up. So try thanking these people.

  24. I agree with the poster from 3/5/10. No doubt that this person is either CTB or a part of her clan. I am the poster that posted on 12/09 with regards to what goes on in this system. Since then, I have once again agreed to 4 months of random drug testing. I paid for every test. Each test came back negative. Unfortunately, 3 of the 12 that I took over that 4 months were negative/dilute. Which apparently is deemed a "dirty test". I never intentionally over-hydrating myself to dilute a test. I merely went on my lunch hour and took my test. So now I am off to take a hair test to override any questions to the authenticity of the results. Went to the court yesterday and requested a different mediator for our upcoming court hearing. And of course, was told no. I am willing to pay for a private one. I will even travel to where Dad lives. Nope, told no. Ok, now you tell me that there isn't monkey business going on.

  28. I am a father and I have experienced first hand the wrong doings of the CORRUPT Placer county Judicial System. I agree with the last 3 postings Taylor- Brown, Rudd, Rego, and Ferris who no longer is with placer County are simply corrupt individuals and it does not matter weather you are a woman or a man, what matters is who do you know and how much are you willing to pay.
    The problem with the placer county judicial system is not only limited to the different people involved in the money grabbing programs that have been developed by the presiding judges, but it is also corruption all the way to the Judges benches.
    Starting with Judge Kearney, Penny, Ginny of family court, to be followed by dependency court with all commissioners; CPS; CASA; the therapist that are contracted with the county to see these children, and lastly the attorneys that ultimately benefit from the continues custody battle.
    It is a disgrace these programs are being put up with tax payers money and are not promoting a set of boundaries to be respected by a disgruntled couple to overcome the breakup and avoid issues with the children, the programs are simply another case file, statistics, and funds in their bank accounts, these files means it is federal funds and state funds, from the government, for their own benefit.
    It is shameful to sit in the court room and see it happening case after case where they use the divorce as a way to get money from whoever is making it.
    My suggestions are follow the money trail these judges are appointed or elected??
    I believe only the presiding judges are elected the rest are appointed and everybody has ties to the political bodies in the city.
    No doubt children are being hurt and deprived of their families.

  29. I am sickened by all the horrible stories regarding Placer County and their lack of desire to figure out what the hell is going on in these cases. The bottom line is I wouldn't want anyone reading my file for 5 minutes before a hearing and making a judgment as to what is in the best interest of my kids. You can rest assured the only thing on their mind is where they are going to "lunch" after the hearing. It is very sad to say the least. Meanwhile, these individuals are left to pick up the pieces and when their kids are 18 Placer County are going to dump these kids in their lap and the kids will either go the wrong way in life or be so traumatized and messed up they won't know which way is up. Horrible... By the way, I am so glad to see Roeder retired. He has the compassion and intelligence of a door knob. Poor thing had a serious Napoleon complex.

  30. Talking about this isnt going to get us anywhere and the purpose of me starting this website was to confirm that I was NOT alone in regard to the corruption of PLacer county courts, the step program, cps and the sherriffs department. It is clear that there are enough people who have solid proof that they have been disciminated against, or that their children have fallen victim to Place County injustice. Can anyone who is interested in standing up for their children and their rights please email me your contact info at fighting4justice_step@yahoo.com.

  33. I have just delt with Ms Brown and she was wonderful. My ex had a huge record and I made sure I had all documents, letters, proof of what I was saying was true. I went throught the STEP program and they saw my ex had many issues and at this time he is not allowed by any means to be in contact with the child and he now has to do many classes drug testing and some of his family members as well. They were brought in, they did invterviews with my family his family and some of his family was orderd to take classes if they wanted to be a part of the childs life.

    Now I am not saying that what others have said on here are wrong or lies, but I wonder if these mother went in ready to fight with papers, documents, ect. I know a lot of "women" feel because I am the mom I know best. Well I have been a pre school teacher and I have seen many women and men who do not deserve to have these wonderful children, but they just use them as pawns in their sick game of life.

    I wish that the right, emotionaly stabble, established parent have custody of the child/children, weather it be the father or mother. Bu8t reading these it comes across that its a poor woman thing. Not my child! And if this did have so many people agaisnt STEP, why hasnt this been taken more public, lawyers now how to get people on the band wagon, I mean look how the Harley shop goin in auburn made fron page news, you would think a problem like this would have by now.

    I dont know anonymous who posted march 20 2011, You tell me!!!!!... Would you think there was something better to do with your time then to try and save your innocent child from a molester an abuser, or a sick person who was harming them? Instead of posting on this page and making childish remarks calling these parents who are trying to protect their children whiny 2 year olds???? What are you doing on here anyway?? Dont YOU have something better to do!! Christine taylor brown is NOT a wonderful lady. She is sick, twisted,and gets cut a paycheck each month for putting innocent children into situations where they have potential to be raped, abused, or even murdered. I know Christine that you read this and I dont know how you sleep at night knowing that you have made orders in the court that children should be in the care of a parent who has once harmed them and continues to harm them. What are you going to do one day when all these innocent little kids grow up and come ask you why and how you could do such a horrific thing to them? What are you going to say when a child asks you why you made an order for him or her to go be with their daddy even after you saw pictures of the welts the father left on the childs body and after you saw the doctors reports where the child told the doctor my daddy hurst me? What Are you going to do when a child grows up and asks you how you could make an order to put them into the hands of a man who was previously convicted for sexually assulting his own sister?? What are you going to say when you meet God? I would be shaking in my boots!

  40. I am not a female, I am a father, a carrying, loving father with a devious ex with Christine, Amy and Chris wrapped around her finger. I am armed with demanding emails from my ex, numerous court order violations, and withholding visits, all of which Christine has giving my ex a tiny slap on the wrist for. However, I make sure I conduct myself respectful, like the judge is watching every second and I am still told I’m rude and controlling. Christine tells me I am controlling when I am helping or when I completed something she has asked me to do. She promised 50/50 custody and then lied in court. I have been told to walk on egg shells for my ex, to bend over backwards that Christine will make sure my ex will do the same for me; it has never happened. Christine has demanded that I give up my parenting time for my ex, she has allowed my ex to take 2 full weeks consecutively taking my parenting time away against court orders. I am shocked. Not once has Christine met our daughter. To top it off, my ex’s parents seem to have more rights than me, and I’m the father. I am the one who had to file for visitation because my ex was too interested in a check and not the best interest of our daughter.

  41. Christine is not going to take this blog seriously. She will laugh it off while trying to guess who are the people writing the comments. Christine makes a lot of mistakes which are then covered up with the help of Chris Trejo. When they fall for an abusive mans ( or woman) charm or story and make a recommendation, they will never admit to the mistake. They will blame the other parent and move on. They don't regret the mistakes that they make and they don't right any wrongs after the fact. I believe they help some people, but if it is a tough case or the client (s) aren't to their liking then they don't do anything. Christine's mediation reports are biased because of her involvement with the STEP program, and she is taking on too much by doing both things. She has way too much power for one person and it has gone to her head. I would say it should be considered an ethical issue because she is supposed to be ethically bound because of being a therapist. Her loyalty is to the courts rather than her patients or clients, and she does everything in a half-assed way. I'm going to email the owner of this site. Maybe we can get something done!

  42. I have a serious concern that someone who works in the Placer County Courts STEP program, Christine Taylor Brown is handling issues in a illegal manner and in direct violation of the following evidence codes of the California Justice System and in doing this an innocent person is being "prosecuted," having his parental rights stripped from him, and being given extreme recommendations by the court all based off of "evidence," that consist of false accusations and hearsay. There is no proof behind the accusers words and what is being done to the defendant is only based on mistakes the defendant had made in the past with no new admissible true evidence. This is a serious crime.
    Please see the below California Evidence Codes that are in violation:


    Evidence code 1202. Evidence of a statement or other conduct by a declarant that
    is inconsistent with a statement by such declarant received in
    evidence as hearsay evidence is not inadmissible for the purpose of
    attacking the credibility of the declarant though he is not given and
    has not had an opportunity to explain or to deny such inconsistent
    statement or other conduct. Any other evidence offered to attack or
    support the credibility of the declarant is admissible if it would
    have been admissible had the declarant been a witness at the hearing.
    For the purposes of this section, the deponent of a deposition taken
    in the action in which it is offered shall be deemed to be a hearsay
    declarant.

    Evediece Code 1101. (a) Except as provided in this section and in Sections 1102,
    1103, 1108, and 1109, evidence of a person's character or a trait of
    his or her character (whether in the form of an opinion, evidence of
    reputation, or evidence of specific instances of his or her conduct)
    is inadmissible when offered to prove his or her conduct on a
    specified occasion.

    Evidence code 520. The party claiming that a person is guilty of crime or
    wrongdoing has the burden of proof on that issue.

    Evidence code 500. Except as otherwise provided by law, a party has the burden of proof as to each fact the existence or nonexistence of which is
    essential to the claim for relief or defense that he is asserting.

    I hope someone see this who has the means to press charges against her if this too is happening to you.

    I will try to alert the media...pass this along...

  44. This is really crazy! I have been in the STEP program for a couple months and I made it extremely clear to Christine that I have just recently lost my job and I am attempting to go to school full time. So instead of working with me, she signed me up for mandatory anger management, parenting and co parenting classes! I have NEVER had a problem with my anger or parenting or have ever had a criminal record!!! My ex had beaten the shit out of me, had problem with drugs, completely left and never once supported our now 3 year old son. And now that he wants to play father of the year, she is all about helping him and not once looked at the shit Ive been through with this POS, or the fact that Im attempting to make ends meet with what lil tiny bit I have. The 'mandatory' co parenting class that I am suppose to go to is from 6-8pm ( though despite the fact I made it EXTREMEMLY clear I do not have a funds or a babysitter), I was dropped from the class and now have to attend yet ANOTHER court date.
    I forward all the emails between my ex and I and even though his bullying hasnt stopped, she doesnt do anything to help. This STEP program I thought was suppose to help me... Instead its really bitting me in the ass. I need help.

  51. Suzanne Feris was the caseworker. I am the mother who lost primary custody after my ex - who was CONVICTED of violating restraining orders, and spend jail time…who was charged with emotional and mental abuse of our minor children got primary custody because Suzanne believed his sob story. He's an habitual liar…a sociopath. How even handed was the investigation? She met with my 2 kids. My son, now 19, has confessed, in writing, that his father put him up to the fake testimony…and bribed him with a dirt bike…played on his anger towards me for "breaking up our home". he soon found out, first hand, the abuse his father was capable of, and that I was trying to save him from. Now, 19, he has written an apology, documenting that his father tricked him into testifying against me by promising that this would "finally bring me back home where I belonged" and offered a dirt bike and trampoline for quid pro quo payment to a 14 year old boy.

    This is a man who - this is documented - showed my children a hangman's noose, and said, "oh, I'm sorry, I forgot to take it down. I was going to kill myself if your mother didn't let me see you this time." He's a sick bastard. And now, thanks to Suzanne, he has primary custody of my daughter.

    Suzanne gave me a 7 minute interview on a static-ridden cell phone call, then ditched my calls and meeting requests when I drove 450 miles to see her face to face for a fair interview. Meanwhile she listened to, and even participated in "leading" the testimony from my young, confused children. It was a lie. My ex is a sociopath. She wrote a scathing, inference ridden, untrue and one sided custody recommendation. I lost custody. The "Los Angeles" courts couldn't possibly consider that a respected social worker like Suzanne could possibly be that biased. Trust me. She is. Why else was she so frightened to even have a face to face to even document or consider my side of the story? I currently have a private investigator looking into possible personal conditions between her and my ex's prominent family.


    I am considering a lawsuit against Placer County. Suzanne needs her licensed pulled. This is a disgrace. How do you put a price on a mother who loses her children at the hands of a negligent and biased, so called professional?

  61. So, I have not been on here for awhile but to no surprise nothing has changed. I am saddened by the amount of people that have responded because it just means that more and more children are suffering as well as the parents who are losing custody of their children. I am the creator of this site and thankfully i was able to get out of the STEP program. However, the damage that has been done to my child could have been prevented if it wasn't for Christine Taylor Brown and Chris Trejo. There is no way that this can just keep happening. I know several of you post anonymously on here in order to protect you and your children from further harm, but there has to be a way for us to get heard. The courts make it difficult to be heard and easy to be silenced. However, justice can prevail without the court system. This NEEDS MEDIA attention and I think if we all come together, we can get this out there. I am starting a petition and would like to know if you are willing to sign it and try and move forward. I am determined to get Christine in trouble for the pain she has caused and lives she has damaged. The courts protect their own and unfortunately, she and the judges and even some attorneys within this county, will vouch for and protect one another. I find it odd that Christine taylor brown has compassion for children after what she did to me and my child and what she has done to all of you. No, this isn't a site to call her names but when you mess with a child's life because you know you have the "power" within the courts to do so... then you are asking for trouble. I don't think Christine Taylor Brown would sit back and be ok it if someone told her to hand over her son to an ex who had beat her, molested her son, been in jail and or prison, and the list goes on. I'm sorry but for those of you who post to back her up, you have no idea the pain that this woman, along side with PC court has done to several families and children. My advice to any of you who are thinking about getting into the STEP program is RUN. It seems mostly women have been affected by her however, as you can see, males have posted on here too. And for the record... This is not Connie Bedwell, I met this wonderful mother because we experienced similar terrors from Christine, Chris, and the entire STEP program, amy Rudd included...Keep all of your conversations with her and anyone in STEP, emails, or lack there of(document if she doesn't write you back) keep EVERYTHING. Ask her if all of your conversations with her be recorded because then there will be no here say... right? I wish i had done this because then i could prove that what she said in mediation would always change when it came time for her recommendations. I have been out of this program for about two years and continue to see the pain my child has gone through because my custody went from 100% to 50 and i almost lost it fully as Christine threatened me, but was able to get out of the program before it was too late. I will talk to whoever i need to, and will help to get this going. I started this blog about 2 and a half years ago because i did not know how else to get the word out there. But, now i have seen that more and more of us have been affected and it is time to make a change and speak past this blog. my email is still up and running and i will be checking it daily. I don't know any of you but would love to do this together. Justice has to and will prevail...

    1. Both she and Placer Co. need to be held accountable for the lives they have destroyed. Then maybe from there we can rebuild our families with hope that this kind of wrong doing will not be accepted by "The People".
      And, yes she is still controlling the lives of children and the people who care about them most. I have never in my life felt so Violated, Yes Violated by the system in which I was raised to trust. If you can't trust the system for which you live and function as a part of, who can you trust? Does truth and justice really prevail? Who can we turn to when it seems the system isn't working? Does anyone who can help really want to step forward for the challenge. The reason the problem continues with STEP and Placer Co. is because we are scared, well I'm tired of being scared!!! I say we ban together and tell these woman to Bring It!! I am still wanting to contact this lady to start a petition, and hopefully a class action law suit. I will search for your email on different sites it's not listed in your contact info on your site profile, so please post on this site so i can contact you.

  66. That is so good to know! While my case was not "officially" a part of the STEP program due to the age our children, Amy Rudd, Suzanna Ferris and Chris Trejo had no problem jumping into our case and doing their part in depriving our children of their right to an equal and unintercepted relationship with both parents. Our case has been going on since 2005, however I finally had to step back and let it be for a while back in 2010. For now, I am trying to make the best of the time I am allowed with our children (albeit a pathetic 17 hours a month)and keeping the lines of communication open as much as possible with our children. Most people have no idea what going through a custody battle for this long does to a Mom physically and emotionally. Not too mention, the yet to be seen long term effect it will have on the children. I am not placing all the blame however on STEP. In my case, Christine Taylor-Brown, Judge Amara and my ex's attorney were all equal players in this tragedy. Today, our children are established in their high school, activities and their friends. As their Mother, I know that it wouldn't be in their best interest to remove them from this. (Amara granted a 2 hour "move away" to my ex in 2008) Hense, the main reason I am laying low for now. Soon they will be of legal age and able to come and go with me as they choose. I just pray that the brainwashing their Father has done and the corruption that was allowed by Placer County Court has not caused life long damage to our relationship as Mother and Child. With all that being said, I am still very interested in becoming involved with whatever legal action, protests or reforms that are currently forming in order to prevent something like this happening to others down the road. Is the email fighting4justice_step@yahoo.com still the best contact?

I don't have any photos of her but i'm sure you can find them online. do you need a photo for something??To get out of the step program you have to tell the judge that you don't want to participate any longer. It is a VOLUNTARY program that looks so appealing until they suck you in. They can't force you to stay in it however i wouldn't be shocked if they did. GET OUT!!!! all it takes is one time for them to make a recommendation to the courts and your child's life can turn upside down. It doesn't matter what anyone else says, their recommendation will always be made an order.

    ReplyDelete
  75. To anonymous who thanked Chris on here.... I'm glad you were able to get help, but your argument is strongly lacking. First off, I know my child very well. There's a difference between forgiveness and justice and justice will prevail. Forgiveness may come but it doesn't take away the pain this woman as well as this whole program has caused innocent children, mothers and a few fathers. If you had mental health issues I'm sure ms. Brown would be the first to know how to diagnose them since she has a few of her own. And yes I know she has a son which is even more sickening knowing she could make recommendations placing children with an abusive parent. Perhaps she herself is abusive. I once begged her to help my child after my child came home with welts and lumps that cps stated were there due to bring hit do hard that the skin cells underneath came to a bruising head... Her response" you're overreacting". So again I tell you, one can forgive but there's a time and place for everything.... Right now justice for these innocent children is what I'm worried about and one day it will prevail. I also question how you as a parent would react if your child came home with bruises, cuts, rashes on his or her mouth telling you their father stuck his worm in their mouth, made them cough and gag, and screamed for dear life to you so they didn't have to go with their father, what the hell would you do ?? Would you be ok with ms Taylor brown ordering your child to live with that parent whine stripping you of your rights to see your child for years. How would you react if your child came home telling you their fathers". Family members licked their privates and smashed their head in the ground when they got mad and your child told cps this yet your child is " too young too know what he/ she is talking about," so nothing was done and ms Taylor brown told u if u didn't stop making accusations the court would take away your child..... How the hell would you as a mother react??? If you would agree with ms. Taylor brown, then you are just as sick and need help. If not, then again, your argument is invalid without proof and provides no credibility. I again want to say I am not Connie Bedwell but Aaliyah will be saved and so will all the children who have been harmed due to the courts alongside with the step program. Justice will win... Because God almighty is more powerful then the courts and step and His hand is in the care of the righteous....

The step program will be over. How do you stop a lady like this? From hurting more people? She works for the courts?Thats a imposable task.How maney lives has she destroyed? Yes she had helped me but i dont think by choice. I think she just wanted to dump me any way she could. but i thank her anyway

    ReplyDelete
  78. The whole system is corrupt, but the only way to stop something is by starting something else... I believe nothing is impossible, and yes God will deal with her. Regardless if the step program is over or not, the fact that the damage done can never be taken back is enough to fight like hell to make sure legal action is taken. The courts protect their own, but as stated before, their "power" is minute compared to the power of God. There's no need for me to argue back and forth with those who post on here about how chris was right about me and i'm full of anger and need to get a life. I am 100% ok with you (anonymous april 3 2012 6:54 am, having your opinion. Really i take it with less than a grain of salt and you obviously have no idea what i am talking about or what you are talking about. Funny thing is Christine couldn't have been right about me because she doesn't even know who this is, neither do you. And the fact that you say it has been years move on... that's like saying, it's been years since your child was murdered, move on get a life... it's been years since you watched your child fear for his or her life knowing the second you let go, they were going to be subjected to rape, and physical abuse... get over it move on.. I'm sorry but i will never stop fighting for the rights and protection of innocent children. NEVER, and since you are so close with Ms. Taylor Brown, you can let her know that:) Oh and you might want to be careful of your word choice... According to Merriam webster, the definition of slander is "the utterance of false charges or misrepresentations which defame and damage another's reputation" These utterances are not false nor do they misrepresent the truth about what this woman and program has done...

  79. You seem well educated Have you got any degrees by the way you are right about me in maney ways. Yes i do sound cold when i say move on with your life yes i have not had the pain you have had. Yes i could hold hate towards this woman for what she has done but it justs hurts me on the inside. And i would be just like her. And no iam not close with her at all i have not talked with her in yrs But Iam not a woman with a child like you are. I hope you find peace. This lady has problems i see. I dont know you at all But god will sort it out and dish out his wrath on those people that did wrong here. I would what someone fighting for me like you are fighting for your child that is special if you are right about your ex. that is just evial what he has done. If you are right. If you are wrong then thats a different cup of tea. Can you really fix what they have done to you and so maney in yrs past?

  80. Only God can fix the pain, but taking a stand to make sure this doesn't continue to happen and to see to it that consequences are administered for these actions is one thing i can help with. The reason for this blog was to find out if there were others, and there are several...

  81. awsome and if there are others how can you fix this so she cant do any more damage. the courts are behind her. and if the courts are corupt then you got a uphill battle you need more people to stand behind you.

    1. How many of you were told by Christine that the judge always agrees with her? How many of you felt like Christine respected you as a person when you were dealing with her? How many of you felt like Christine cared to truly understand your situation? How many of you feel that Christine asked appropriate questions to determine your level of knowledge or background? And if she did ask, or do these things then did it seem like it mattered to her? I doubt it because you were in the preapproved a**hole club so it didn't matter. Just so everyone knows, that is not appropriate for a mental health professional. Dealing with Christine, you can't help but notice a lot of bullying tactics which are legal maneuvers, not therapy maneuvers. So lets assume she is trying to beat people down with behavioral therapy, meaning that she feels that if she forces you and the other party to behave a certain way for a certain amount of time that some of it will stick. First things first, was this disclosed to you upon entering the program? Did you know that you were signing up for the beat down without regard to individuality? And it is doubtful, but if someone murmured the words cognitive behavioral therapy, did you know what that meant? Because most people might not or be fuzzy on it. It is very well known in Christine's field that therapy only works if it is desired. I have spoken to others in the mental health field who do not know her and their opinion is that: it is not alright to tell a client that the judge doesn't make the decisions, that she does. It is not alright to bully a client into signing agreements or making it seem like you shouldn't go to trial. It's also not ok to gossip about the clients or laugh at them, it happens but it's unprofessional. Personally, I doubt the judge is corrupt, I would really hate to think that. I think it is more a situation where she is a respected professional whose opinion is valued by the judge just like any other mediator. The thing that has to happen is to prove that she is doing a poor job.

    2. 2 of 2 People let it go because they just want to move on, and get the hell away from that program, but by doing so they leave her in place to mess up the next cases and lives. I have straight up evidence of mistakes she made and how it negatively affected my case and my children, but without others to have the same thing and to join me then of course she will say one case, so what, mistakes are made you can't be perfect, and I'm too busy, the greater good and all that. These excuses are the trouble and are accepted by superiors. If Christine did your mediation report then how long was it between the time you met with her and the time she submitted your report? Did you receive it in the mail, or was it available from the mediation department prior to your court date? Did you receive someone else's report in error, or have another client's report stapled to your own in error? Did you have adequate time to review your report before court or were you handed the report 30 minutes before the court time? I would like to make note that making notes, and filling out assessment forms during a session may help a person remember what was discussed, but if the report is written 2-5 weeks after the appointment then a lot is lost. She is writing the reports the night before they are absolutely due if she slamming them in at 8 am the day of court. If Christine was your mediator then were there errors in your mediation report? How many? What type of information was incorrect? Did she act like you had a lot of nerve for mentioning the errors? Did she imply that she was way too busy to do a better job and the errors wouldn't have changed the outcome anyway? Or in other words, who cares. Has anyone ever wondered why a person who claims they are too busy doesn't quit one job so they can concentrate and do a better job at one instead of screwing up both jobs? I mean it is about all the people Christine helps and not her pocketbook right? So, if you would like to chat about your case and any errors that were made then please create an anonymous email account and post it here, make sure it does not indicate who you are in any way. I don't check back often but I will check back. Time frame doesn't matter because the most important thing is to show the amount of errors she is making, lack of disclosure about the program, and the way she treats people. Look forward to hearing from any interested parties.

  82. interesting. Are you involved with the courts yourselve. You seem very on the mark with things here.Maybe she has to much work she doing for the courts. Does she have someone else helping her on these cases That could be a problem with misplacing things? But she is not a robot she does have feelings. So she messes up she is only human. We all have lost something at one time or another. We should not do so when it affects a persons life. And does she treat people with disrespect I hope not?

    1. Being busy is a universal excuse for not doing a good job. I'm certainly not concerned about Christine's feelings. If you take on responsibilities then you have to know your limits. The more you take on, the less you are able to give to each individual responsibility. She is the one who has many people saying the same things about her, over a period of years. Obviously the problem hasn't been resolved. Many of the people are discounted because they can't articulate themselves properly. They also know they were treated poorly, and there is a problem. They may be barking up the wrong tree but they still have a reason to bark. Thats what lawyers do, not therapists. They get you on the details to try and prove you wrong. Therapists should redirect. Disrespect is a huge issue in that office, as well as rudeness, sarcasm and excuses. What do you do when a professional or governmental department can't correct their own behavior? It has to be forced upon them.

I want it up and running asap so please email your responses as soon as you can. Thank you to all of you parents on here who have shared your stories and spoken out. It is because of you that your children have a chance. I am saddened by the pain this court and program has caused our children, but thankful we have a large group of us who are willing to keep fighting. Don't be scared of the system.. eventually it is going to come crashing down. We are going to fight like hell and win to protect our children. God Bless you all and keep on posting and email me if you feel it is safer that way.

  87. There is Proof, but it is not necessary to let you know anonymous the exact details of the proof. She's seen the proof with her very eyes, and it has been at the tips of her fingertips countless times. So has Chris trejo, Amy rudd, and everyone in that office... If she and the step program have done nothing wrong then there is nothing to worry about right... Thats for an attorney to present and a non PC judge and jury to decide. Once a lawsuit is in place, you are more than welcome to come listen and see the proof:) Unless of course you are somehow affiliated to the step program, you know damn well what I am talking about.

    A therapist is mandated to report abuse, and when presented with proof and documentation should not have "private" conversations with cps to determine that full evidence of abuse supported by a doctor to be true, should be thrown out of the window. When a parent is crying out for your help because it is your job to help them protect their child, you don't turn down evidence when it's in front of your face!!!! I wonder how Christine, and you would feel if your father shoved his penis down your throat and made you gag at 2 years old.. gave you rashes and sometimes wiped his cum off your face with a napkin!!(yes this is what happened to aaliyah bedwell and christine refused to watch the video yet determined it was in this poor little girls best interest to go live with a man who was sexually abusing her!!! Why didn't she watch it? It was her job yet she failed aaliyah and took sides with a pedophile. I wonder how you or Ms. Taylor Brown would feel if your parent beat you as a toddler while leaving welts so large that even a cps nurse determined could not have happened from a fall or anything other than abuse. Yet a woman who is supposed to help protect you decided it was better for you to go with your abuser and tell cps the evidence is "inconclusive" because how could a child really know what happened to them? SO strange how connected cps and the step program are.. and how stories change after they talk to the father, the ABUSER! Of course he didn't do it! DO you really think he will say, ya i forced my daughter to perform oral sex on me, ya Christine of course i beat my child because he was crying and i didn't know how to handle him. Yes, christine i left bruises on her body because i can't control my temper.... COme on!!! Or maybe there is more to this story? Strange how many sides of the fathers that this program, christine especially took. How odd that when your clients christine show up to court, that you give the father a smile and a hug and don't even make eye contact with the mother?

    Open your EYES!!!! There are so many cases of the lack of performance on Christine Taylor Browns behalf that once we get before a judge... you can all hope to God you have a good attorney to back you up...And trust me,, there isn't an attorney in this world that could prove you were in the right...

  91. It is really confusing to understand who is saying what other than fighting4justice. I have some things to add that some people might not want to hear. First is that, most likely Christine reads this blog from time to time or someone from her office does and she probably knows or can guess who most people are so we are not anonymous. I am pretty sure Christine and Chris know who I am, but I still don't say who I am for other reasons. If I tell my story on this blog or reveal my identity then someone might know me, or my kids or meet them someday. If I posted my children's names all over the internet, I feel that is a humiliation to them. I don't care one bit about the father's reputation but his reputation is connected to my kid's reputation. The last thing that I would want to happen to a child of mine is for someone to say, "hey aren't you the kid whose dad shoved his cock down your throat"? In my opinion, the only way I can save my child and monitor what is happening with my child is to be with my child. Even if Placer county is screwing me the whole way, they aren't placing my kids with an unstable maniac full time, and taking away my custody. If they (Christine)told me that I was going to lose my kids unless I went down on Pleasant Grove at Walmart and held up a sign that said "I am an asshole" all day on Saturday then my ass would put on a hoodie and sun glasses and I would be out there with my sign and have someone take pictures as proof if I needed to. I might be plotting my revenge the whole time and cursing her name, but I would still do what I had to. I am the same person who posted those two long posts asking about how your case was mishandled and being sarcastic. I'm not changing my opinion, but I'm saying once you lose custody and appear uncooperative then you are in trouble. I had the opportunity to go to the website that fighting4justice mentioned before. I listening to that radio blog that is posted I do not believe that Barbara whoever is going to be helpful to any cause. I would tell that lady to never mention my name or my case again. She is probably in jail or going to get arrested for something soon. Everyone who posts or reads this blog should listen to what that lady has to say and decide for themselves but she has some pretty unlikely and unusual theories. To say that there is a conspiracy where Placer co. or any county officials or employees are in a child pornography ring is pretty off the wall. There may have been a judge, or therapist somewhere at some time who did something like that, but it would be extremely rare, and not linked. They won't even take that seriously. A lady who is hiding out in hotel rooms in secret locations whose evidence got stolen is not able to help. Certain people have a their own cases, but that isn't going to help the rest of the people. Or in addition to any case you file, you have to do something else. A permanent change has to be made. I would love to email with, talk with, or meet with anyone who is interested about their situation and what they would like to do. I have emailed with fighting4justice but I would like to give a more private email to the public I can be reached at newand.reused@yahoo.com. We could set up a conference call or a meeting, and I would love to coordinate this with fighting4justice.

  96. Clean house? I don't know what that means, but what I do know or believe is that a "conversation" is not going to change anything.

    ReplyDelete
  97. A conversation isn't going to assist me when my kids are telling me that their Dad is spitting on them and tripping them, and being emotionally abusive. They say he eats food in stores and puts the empty wrappers back without paying and they know that is wrong. Those are just examples, not the only things he does. Since the courts have the philosophy that unless kids have bruises they are just making things up to please the other parent, them it leaves a parent powerless to help your child. I have been made aware that kids do this, and I accept that this is something that does happen. I have stopped doing things long ago that I believe would elicit this type of behavior. Even if I assume that in being aware that I still make mistakes, or they just get the feeling that I don't like Daddy. I believe that I now know the difference between when my kids are saying Daddy is mean (which he is), and when they truly need my help or someone's help. So if I was a social worker I would be telling me, "well at least he isn't beating them, it could be worse". Your step program doesn't work because the kind of troubles that my kids Dad have either don't go away until they have had years of therapy, or unless they are medicated depending on what the issue is exactly. A bio-psychosocial doesn't work if you lie on it, or manipulate it. I don't mean lie as in how your office describes a lie as something that a person believes is true, but may not be true. When I refer to lying, I mean the type of lie where the person is well aware of the truth, and even says, did you see how I got them to think it was you and not me? "Fighting" is not the issue. Fighting with me is not the reason that someone like my kids Dad says and does the things that he does. Your program does not isolate people like him, and psychological testing does not isolate people like him. Every person dealing with a person like that wants to know, how do they, on their level and where they are in the progression of knowledge and life, deal with a person like that? They also want to know why they are not allowed to protect their kids from mental abuse, emotional abuse, or even physical and sexual abuse? Those questions are never answered. Let's hear some best answers from various people in the placer county system- "well you chose him", "you don't understand", "well good luck with that one", "next time call CPS", "get a restraining order". Those answers are not helpful and are dismissive.

  98. This is interesting. Glad I came across this site. Maybe part of the problem with this lady is not wanting to admit she is wrong because she doesn't have to. Court type people are notorious for acting like they care when they don't. It's just a job and people get sick of the job. It's not a good thing but it can be true. I don't know enough about the situations to know what the trouble might be but I know that anyone who has a problem with the way the system works gets screwed in one way or another. Sometimes people in positions over other people feel important about themselves. I'm just throwing some things out there. Just wanted to offer support.

  99. I know a lady who is very frustrated with her experience at mediation and that program you are referring to and the whole system. The other party in her case, the father of her children, really has serious issues and problems aside from the issues they identified for both parties. She tried to accept the diagnosis of his situation, and the family situation but his behavior seems to change/deteriorate into new symptoms every few years. She is not being mean or over-reacting, he has something wrong. No one else is going to seek help for him because everyone else who deals with him regularly gets away fast. She has an interest in protecting the children in the case. The man is not functional in many ways, and the man is not aware of many things he does. He fiercely protects his bigger issue by lying, but it’s hard to separate where reality and delusion merges for this man. There is one aspect of this man’s life that makes him feel important and needed and he is humiliating himself, and his kids in this setting. Everyone seems to have great compassion for his situation, more than for anyone else in the family, so it seems odd that it wasn’t explored more. The woman does not want this responsibility, and would love to hand it off to someone else but there just isn’t anyone else. She could probably get him to agree to go to an appointment to a medical doctor and to let her go with him, but he has such mood changes and paranoia that by the time the appointment came he would have changed his mind, and wouldn’t end up going. She said in this case she feels like they are worried about cleaning the carpet when there is a man bleeding all over the floor. No one is worried about where the blood is coming from, only about how to get the blood off the floor.

  101. Certain things were not recognized at the time the case was open and certain other things have presented themselves since the case closed, so addressing these issues again means opening a new can of worms and starting over which is almost unthinkable because of how draining and consuming that would be. There would have to be a concrete reason that is evidence and provable before I would be willing to put myself through that again.

  102. 1/2 Sometimes men who are abusers have multiple issues and it is almost impossible to deal with. Living in a family that is in complete chaos is very difficult, especially when the chaos is originated by one person. For a kid dealing with a Dad who is out of control is very difficult. Plans are changed for minute to minute, hour to hour, there are no schedules, dinner times, bed times, no time for bathing. One day you have a room, the next day someone else is using it, or its became a storage room. One day you have a toy the next day it is given away or sold. As a kid you may be brought home late, sleep in your clothes, maybe you get to change your shirt in the morning, but that's it. Maybe you got dinner, or not. Maybe you pee the bed and sleep in it all night and get screamed at in the morning. If a bath happens, its a fluke reason. It's not a way of life for a family, it's the Dad's way. The children are agitated all the time because it's over-stimulating. Many times the father doesn't remember the families schedules, activities or obligations when changing plans over and over, and sometimes he doesn't care. Dad becomes enraged when he is brought back to reality with reminders of realities. He expects everyone to comply with all spur of the moment changes, forgetting about all school or friend obligations or else be insulted and yelled at. A small child does not have the ability to separate themselves from this, where an older child can hide out or leave the house. One boy who used to be younger, and is now a teenager never was allowed to play outside, never could join an activity, and the father wanted to control every aspect of his life. he was also never given a punishment, or a household responsibility. He just sat and watched TV or played video games, or he would sit outside the bedroom door of his Dad and listen. SO that's the first part. The next things is that the boy already had problems with getting overly angry, and with calming down after becoming angry. But certain things made the situation much worse. Many times when the boy would refuse to follow a direction the father would become very mad and over-react. The boy would then call the father fat, or a piece of shit. Maybe the father would say calm down crazy and go to take your meds. Then the boy would escalate because he was on ADHD meds, or used to be. Then the boy would yell/scream my Mom would never treat me like this and I'm going to tell her. The Dad would say, no one is going to believe you and your Mom is a whore. Sometimes the incidents involved the dad hitting the boy with a belt, sometimes the Dad was holding the boy down and covering his mouth, sometimes he got a spanking, sometimes he spit on the boy, but everytime the Dad insulted the Mom. Sometimes the boy would go and get a knife, or a poker and was going to kill the Dad. Dad got a better lock on his door. Sometimes the boy threatened his brother with a knife, or bodily harm. In addition to this happening, the father was abusive to his live-in girlfriend. The boy would sit outside the door and listen as they argued and the Dad threw her around, and attacked ect. The boy would pound on the door and scream saying I hear what you are doing to her in there, just like you did to my Mom. Open the door dad you piece of shit. Again the Dad might say go away crazy, or your mom is crazy, and sometimes the boy went and got a knife then came back and said come out now dad you MF-er, open the door you coward. continued...

  103. 2/3 Has to be 3 instead of two posts. So the father always feels in second place in the children's eyes in comparison to the mother and blames her for all problems in his life. But he does nothing that isn't for show to take care of the kids. This is a Dad with a minimum of 50% custody up to full custody at times. Another favorite thing for the father to do when the boy was angry was to tell him that his mother didn't want him, and that his mother was a whore, the boy might be out of control but the father said these things very calmly. The father also had to prove these things to the kid if he was going to win. The father placed naked photos of the mother (which might be photo shopped, but it looks like the mother to the kid), and his own penis mixed in with family pictures on his phone and his computer. He proceeds to show family photos to the kids, and "accidentally" shows the photos of the Mom to the boys on many occasions. This also happens with the pics of his penis, except female guests, family members, and others also receive the "accidental" penis pics too. So hey isn't that proof that Mom's a whore? He might add in a comment like your Mom is sick, or who would take a photo like that? Or sorry you had to see that son. The next thing this full-time Dad and stand-up guy began doing was saying that the Mom called and set up a visitation with the boys. The boys are happy, yay! a break from crazy Dad. So Dad drives them to a location, and sits and waits. Mom never shows up and that is because Mom called, but Dad never answered the phone. He can show everyone on his caller ID that she called, but unfortunately no visit was ever scheduled. Dad wants to prove that Mom doesn't want you. All the way home he nags and talks bad about the Mom while the boys hang their heads. But the one boy is suspicious and makes sure he says, it's because of you Dad you piece of shit. He does't know what but he is sure Dad did something. This happens several times at least.

  104. 3/3The father has a way of changing memories though and it's really hard to hold on to your own memories because the father changes his memory of the story many times and tells the kids they are wrong about there own memories, and repeats things 30 times a day until no one is sure what happened. People who don't comply and try and hold on to their own version of memories of an incident are insulted and made fun of, but the older you are the easier it is to avoid getting brainwashed. The only memories that have been changed though are to make the Dad look better than he is and other people to look worse, not the other way around. Eventually the kid realizes that no matter what Dad always wins and he never gets caught doing what he does or he gets out of it. Seems like he a winner. No woman is smart enough or strong enough to beat him, the cops can't catch him stealing, the courts don't know what he's up to. I guess everyone better go along with Dad cause if I don't then bad things happen, nothing good happens. This wonderful Dad also had more kids. SO when a little boy says Dad pushed me, dad tripped me, spanked me, spit on me, dad showed me a picture of you and said you had a big ass. Do the Mom of those boys think it is likely to be happening, yes she does. He is just ramping up because those other boys are small. The older the child, the more free he becomes with his behaviors. Does the Mom want to stop it now before it gets worse, yes she does. When the small boys say mommy where were you? We went to your "work" and your car was gone, or you were supposed to come when we did this or that and you didn't come. I'm mad at you mommy, we are both mad at you. The mom of the small boys definitely understands what is happening and the Dad knows that she knows, but the little boys have no way of knowing the things that have happened in the past. The Dad surrounds himself with kids, boy and girls of all ages. He takes them on trips, he takes them to do fun things, he gives gifts, he volunteers at schools. Has he dared show the "special" family photos yet, no one knows, maybe the older boy knows. Dad likes to tell stories and one of his favorites is about how he does things to people's food and drinks for fun. He laughs hysterically while telling these stories. Ejaculating in scrambled eggs, spitting in drinks, dunking his penis in a drink before serving it. Everyone who knows him refuses to eat or drink unsealed or unmonitored food from him, anyone who knows anyway. The man should have a flashing light on his back as a warning to people for many reasons

  105. 1 of ? A lot of people started treating me differently because of certain opinions expressed regarding this case. That happens often when dealing with this Dad, but eventually it usually comes around full circle, but not usually with anything to do with court. Some people take advantage of perceived weaknesses, personality traits, or known beliefs and use them to their own advantage. Some people are so good at this that it takes a really long time to figure it out, and you keep thinking that "this part is the only lie, or that has to be the last thing to find out, or it can't be mostly lies". I know that I thought that this man was being victimized by the other parent also and I tried to help, and that was a huge mistake. I thought most of the trouble was being caused on the other end and I was dead wrong. I didn't understand the situation for a long time. When things started happening in the household that were odd, or aggressive he just justified it, stress, tired, the other parent, ect. He even put on a suit and went to a job that didn't exist in the early days. After a while there comes a point where you just can't believe anymore, and when you try to undo it or back out of the situation things get crazy. Threats are made, force is used, everything is being tightly controlled and it becomes frantic and scary. Extraction is almost impossible then more kids are involved, if you cut off completely then it's like throwing the small ones to the wolves, unless you get help or someone believes you. With this man in particular the support people become the target, he wants to drive away, and discredit the people who in his mind are stopping him from total control, or regaining control. Many people have been his target, an aunt in el dorado accused of abuse, a very sick lady in another county who had a poor relationship with her daughter was used to drive a wedge and for credibility, a man going through a divorce who said and did some emotional and dumb things, another grandmother who is spunky and outspoken. All these people may have issues but everyone does, but those people are not abusive and are at least 100 times better people than the Dad in question. There are others who assisted him in some way who got used or attacked, a lady in another area is 100K lighter, a nearby lady wrote him a nice letter, now may be evicted, a few females for different reasons are being blackmailed. This person has a very odd family but they don't speak to him, and act afraid of him. An old man said one time that his kid got hurt pretty bad and the kid never was the same again. A person who has been observing this person for decades calls this person the devil because he says no one operates that unless they are pure evil, and yes I know that is an exaggeration.

  106. 2/2 When you are in a situation like this you can't think straight. Everything is a lie or illusion, things that don't even seem like they matter are lied about. It's constant manipulations, chaos, aggression, control, and it's all mixed up in a mess. You see signs and odd things happening but you can't figure out what it means. You have to go to work but when you do that is when a lot of things happen. After leaving, finding out about sexual abuse is like being hit by a car. Everything stops, everything changes, and you are still expected to deal with this sick person the same way you did before. The victim goes through this whole process of telling the right people the right things, and nothing happens, and that's the way it goes because you apparently didn't say the right things by their standard. After that for the next 4 years you find out little things and start piecing it all together, how it happened, what happened, why it happened, what you missed, what you should have done differently, ect. No one is in the same place they were 5 years ago, or even 2 years ago. And even the bad Dad has shown improvement in certain areas in the last few months, but he is still off and has problems. Some people might want to unwind all that but it's a slippery slope for anyone. I know from experience. Some parents have to give up after a while, or at least try and have some kind of normal life because it really is too much for a person to have to deal with. As long as Dad has kids and is allowed to continue like this then the kids are going to have problems. And in my opinion who knows what could happen. I don't feel confident that he will stop trying to turn my kids against me or not hurt another child. Some families come together with a purpose to protect the small ones as much as possible. A lot of options are considered, past events and experiences considered, along with likely outcomes for different scenarios. This Dad is hell bent on winning, control, and making his kids have the roughest road possible, even if it is not intentional. So you put a plan together that you think will insulate everyone as much as possible and make the Mom as available as possible to buffer and counteract, and so she is aware of everything that is happening, and not distracted by work obligations. You get the little ones out of the house as much as possible so they are away from the household influences as much as possible and in the presence of professionals who also observe. When things get crazy, you try again to tell someone what is happening. You think spanking, sexual abuse in the past, name calling cursing and fighting is bad, but it means something else to the people you are talking to so you don't know what you should have said differently. In the end everyone gets some help and improvement, but the Dad is still saying bad things to the kids, and the kids are angry, and the older boy is doing things he shouldnt, really negative towards women, and telling a young boy that he needs to hurt his mom. The Dad has no insider information about the Mom's life or household so he makes up things to fill in the blanks. Just a few words though from a certain person really just relieved this ball of anxiety. That was one of the best things that has happened in years. That feeling is just gone now because something really important was done that means everything, and there is a girl that I can tell that maybe the next time he won't get away with it and maybe ALL her brothers might benefit somehow eventually.

  107. Interesting.....
    I have been in this unjust system for a while now and
    without question major changes are needed.
    I and my children are victims as well so please consider my observations while attacking others.
    1. the law is 50/50 without regard to the best interest of the children.
    this phrase is SHOVED DOWN EVERYONE'S THROAT without consequence.
    A. Attack the logic behind the law.
    B. Get the law changed.
    2. Mediators,programs,associated with the courts are not neutral. they have to operate under the law because (obvious) that is who they work for,and bias is going to affect the outcome. I can't think of one mediator we have had to see (which is most on the county list) that wasn't biased in some way for their own peculiar reason or simply didn't give a damn on that particular day.
    A. each party should have their own professional mediator to advocate for their position and if your kids are the utmost importance PAY FOR IT. no excuses. Find a way.
    3.Blaming a particular person doesn't change anything. Systemic issues encompass procedures not people.
    A. Take responsibility for choosing the person you
    had babies with.
    B. Document, Document, Document by every means possible. spy cams, recordings,etc. and while doing
    so, kiss asss to keep your kids safe until such time
    you can protect them within the current limits of the law.
    C.Abusive people are sick, or abused themselves or have genetic issues for their behavior.
    For now, right or wrong accept the facts.

    So, if yall want to gang up and make a difference
    quit whining and come to the blog with ideas that
    after careful thought and consideration with respect
    to your particular situation would improve on a broken,dis-functional revolving crisis system that clearly profits hiding behind "the best interest of the children"
    My contribution : where is the evidence behind the
    concept of "best interest"?
    : gather evidence. High conflict and
    abusive situations rarely have
    positive outcomes for the children
    when divided in "care"
    : What is a reasonable uniform
    standard of "evidence" where there
    is no "physical" proof?
    How about family history? It is used freely to determine disease,preventative treatment. Why not for the "best interest of the children"?
    How about immediate psyc evaluations of each parent?
    And, neither parent has custody till the evaluations are complete?
    How about increasing marriage license fees to cover the eventual costs?
    :Court- fines,sanctions,enforcement
    of court orders.
    Family court is the only court
    where perjury, fraud, deceit,and
    blatant disregard for the law is
    "ignored" at the sole discretion
    of the presiding "judge"of"justice"
    What changes can reduce the secondary effects on the
    children when "justice" and the law is not applied?
    OK.....
    your turn.

    1. (1 of 2) I think you are talking about at least two different issues. The first is preventative measures to avoid these type of situations, and the second is deciding issues about situations that already exist. Both are very complicated issues,as far as preventative measures go,it can be said that everyone should make better choices, but young ppl frequently make bad choices, and so do older ppl.Educating people on marriage, human nature,potential adult issues,the deterioration process of a relationship,and parenting all seem logical.But who is going to do this and how is it being paid for and how can it be widespread and standardized?People can try to change the laws,but alone we are not qualified to know what is best.A lot of research and input from legal,and psychological professionals would be needed.A lot of smart, experienced and educated people out there can't figure out a better system already.The next thing is dealing with the existing system, the existing people who work in the system, and the existing families with problems.It can and should be expected that when dealing with professionals such as lawyers, mediators, judges, psychologists in general that you receive less bias than average, and more fair treatment, and thoughtful and intelligent decisions.The reason for this is because these people are held to legal and ethical standards, and for the most part have more education and experience than the average person in these matters. Having said that, it is true that everyone has bias and makes mistakes.
      One thing you said stood out to me as something that is not an option at all and this was removing the children from both parents until the situation is resolved.It is done in the short-term now and when dangerous situations exist,but it can't be a long-term solution in cases where drug abuse, or physical abuse is not evident because these things may never get resolved or it could be years before the truth comes to light. Removal in these types of cases causes children extreme pain, and emotional damage. I believe they adhere to the 50/50 rule because if for example, they chose the wrong parent and placed the child with an abuser full-time that is more damaging than placing the child with the abuser half the time. Psychological evaluations are definitely used and are useful, but they are not foolproof and people can skew the results.

  108. (2 of 2)I agree that you have to kiss ass, but spy cams and recordings can't be used in court as far as I know. You may be able to get a social worker or mediator to indulge you and watch or listen, but they shouldn't because they don't know if those are valid, and unaltered recordings. As far as I know, documentation is good, but still can be ignored, and witnesses can be used, but they can be considered biased depending on who they are. It would hold more weight if your neighbor witnessed something as opposed to your Mom, but in court everyone is sworn in and swears they are telling the truth so a relative could possibly work.
    Each individual working in these systems and programs has to be willing to be personally accountable for their decisions. The system is only as good as the individuals who make it up and enforce it.If a person chooses to be a psychological professional, or a criminal justice professional that person better be extremely responsible, involved and accountable.I agree with you though about family court being the only court which perjury, fraud, deceit, ect. is allowed.I believe this is because psychological professionals are trying to be so fair and understanding to people with mental health issues that they overlook a lot.In trying to be unbiased in regard to one person, maybe a bias forms against the other.I don't know, but there are no cut and dry answers at this time. I think correct assessment of each case, at each step, and interaction could reduce errors within the exists system.Although it is time consuming, professionals may not be able to trust the judgement of a previous professional on the case.So if a social worker makes errors in assessing a case,then a mediator reads the file later on and uses his findings as a basis, then another professional on the case uses her assessment, and on and on it goes with a case possibly being assessed incorrectly.Time and money are barriers to reassessing each time, but maybe it is required to eliminate errors and bias. I would be interested in hearing what the blog owner has to say on this subject also!

  116. I have an important thing to say to parents going through mediation or any family court issue. If you receive a mediation report back from the courts that is not in your favor you have to comply with their recommendations because if you don't they will hold your kids from you until you do. You may never be able to prove your allegations against the other parent, or prove that you did not do what you are accused of, so think about that. You can fight it out later. But remember this, your mediation report is going in your file for anyone involved in your case to read, and if you are in a program, a class, or whatever you can assume it is possible that they are aware of the mediator's opinion, or they have been contacted or been given an update about your case. If the report was in favor of the other party then every single person involved will believe this is true, and other people will be told that this is the case. You have to go through the process and hope to come out the other side with the least amount of damage as possible, and regroup. I don't say anything or give an opinion without researching the subject thoroughly, and I can say one thing for Connie is that she is right about how the family court works at least in one area. Everyone gets on-board one idea, and the more you fight, the firmer they hold on to that idea, and everything you say and do is reaffirming their opinion because of the go along attitude. They believe a "professional opinion" over you any day. So when you see Connie's blogs say that these 10 people are on her crap list, it's because in some way they failed her. I'm almost positive that everyone jumped on that one idea train. For arguments sake assume that she is wrong and the Dad didn't do anything. I know from experience that some people working in Placer County lack a whole lot of diplomacy, and skills to get through to different types of people. They made themselves her enemy, and started a war with her. You can never prove to someone they are wrong or talk sense into them when you are fighting them, or insulting them, or ganging up on them. If Connie is right about her allegations then all this upheaval will scare the Dad, even if he doesn't show it. Jumping through the hoops just to get to the other side is what everyone does, and you have to do it. You will always learn something from it, even if what you learn is not what the mediator thinks you need to learn. Not doing it is like giving up your child. Don't have too much pride to do the right thing for your kids.

I am looking at my son being put in the hands of his abuser/ biological parent of whom he has seen only 36 days his entire life and is 10 years old. His last memories are being beaten with a belt to blood and told a spider would eat him if he moved from the corner, did I mention he was 2 1/2 years of age. I will go public. I have already reached out to my local board of supervisors and will not stop. How dare anyone think that simply handing a child over to a complete stranger is a great idea.

  120. Im a dad in a 50-50 custody arrangement. The custody part of the divorce isnt the big deal its the divorce settlement. My ex had falsely accused me of rape and domestic violence and also violence towards our 4 year old daughter. All are completley untrue and were immediatley removed at our first divorce hearing. My ex is an alcoholic who is also been diagnosed as depressed and bipolar and takes all the meds to go with them. She has dropped out of 2 alcohol treatment programs this year. She made drug and alcohol accusations at me and now I get drug and alcohol tested. 6 times this year, passed every one of them. My ex failed her only one and nothing was done about it. Can this program help me? I know its all man haters on here, but where does a dad get help? Ive spent 14k on a lawyer this year just to keep these insane accusations at bay. I cant afford anymore and am looking for options. TIA

    1. Well as I mentioned the rape allegations were thrown out when I turned over emails she wrote specifically stating that the allegations were not true. As to when we met, she was a fantastic, beautiful and energetic 26 year old young lady. There was a history of Alcoholism in the immediate family, but I didnt think twice about it. We had a great life got married and were social drinkers for the next 7years. Then came our daughter, the greatest thing we could ever been given. It was a tough pregnancy and very hard on my wife. 3 months after tge birth she was treated for PTSD. That didnt seem to help and we sought counselling. The baby stressed her out so bad with the smallest of child related duties. She also started seeing a phychiatrist, who told her she was depressed, bipolar and anti social. Also a sleep disorder. She was taking pills like tic tacs. The pills made it exponentially worse. She was a shell of het former self and her drive to do anything wss gone. She was just there, nothing more. Did not like to go.out or leave the house. Then the drinking started, and when that train got rolling it got rolling fast. There was pump and dumps with the breast milk, hidden liqour bottles all over the house, liquor in shampoo bottles and water bottles. 300$+ a week in alcojol purchases. The final straws were coming home and finding her passed out with our 2 year old crying on top of her several times. I had spoken to her family and we got her in a program. All she got out of that was a ciggarette habbit, and a hatred for me. I didnt care at that point, I thought she was killing herself and I just wanted her to get better. Well she didnt. I filed for divorce 16 months ago. When I did she took our daughter and dissapeared. I talked to the police and reported my 4 year old missing. When they foun her 3 days later my wife made the domestic violence and rape allegations and got a temporary restraining order on me. I did not get to see my daughter for a month while waiting for court! So Im sure theres a bunch of man haters her, but theres assholes of both sexes out there. All Im adking is for some good advice from people male or female that have dealt with this type of situation. The topper this week is its the second week of school and my wife has already held my daughter home 2 times because she cant get out of the house, hungover Im sure. She missed 19 days of school last year. 1Day was missed while in my care and she had pinkeye. Ive told the courts ive told the county and our mediator, no one seems to care

    3. Alex, I have a case where mom continually throws out false accusations against me and I have spent tens of thousands of dollars in attorney fees to prove my innocence. In Jan 2015, I could no longer handle my wife's physical, mental, and financial abuse so I told her I wanted a divorce. Within 5 mins of me telling her so, she called CPS and said I was abusing my son. CPS did their investigation and found the charges unfounded. Despite this, I lost all custody of my children up until a few months ago. Despite me turning in police reports where I had to call on mom, emails, and the fact my teenage daughter told the courts that she was coached by mom, Christine Taylor Brown continually puts my little children back into mom's hands (the abuser). I have researched and looked for any kind of help for fathers and unfortunately was not able to find any. As a male, the court system and certainly Christine find you guilty until proven innocent and is very biased towards males. If you can afford to pay for a mediator outside of the court system, you may get a better result. The other option is a 3110 child custody evaluation but this option costs $1500 but these evaluators are chosen through the courts and work with the courts. You will always get a better result using any professional outside of the court system. A good rule of thumb is that anyone that cannot make it on their own in the private sector go into the public sector and has been my experience over the past year of my divorce process. Last of all, if you are forced to go through a court mediator and find out it is Christine Taylor Brown, I would highly recommend using your one-time objection to her. The law specifically states that they are to read court documents; however, she will not and I am currently filing with the court system to have her removed from the court appointed panel for this as well as providing legal advice to my ex, and practicing medicine which is outside her scope of education and licensing. CBT is very hostile and sloppy. She has had to call me numerous times to tell her what date/times we set our appointments for because she did not write it down. I wish you the best of luck and know that it is going to be a tough and lengthy battle.
