Re: Family safety in Switzerland

Again, if it is either staying or going up or down a year where the tempo and program of the work gets merged with average, then it does not address much. Having worked with kids for almost 2 decades, knowing their needs, I know timing of certain stimuli for certain kids is crucial. It's rarely all stimuli that needs to be sped up or slowed down. It's not as black and white as pretending the child is a year older/younger, since their development is differentiated and often social and academic progress is not the same, nor linear. Too often the approach to kid's potential in a class is not differentiated at all. Differentiated approach is not even expected. To speed up or slow all the input, undifferentiated, is economical, practical, time and work saving, etc. For the school, teachers and parents. Not necessarily what's the best for the kid. World walks away from the deceptive theory of standardized input. It's lazy and inefficient, and does not foster mental independence in people. Fosters conformity and risk adverse culture.

The safe Switzerland?

Reading this article I was thinking how long Switzerland will be the " legendary safe country"? With influences from abroad, lot of foreigners - will this situation change in the near future? The Swiss seem to feel comfortable and do not expect anything can happen to them. What do you think?

I just bought a UK friend's 8 yr old a knife for Christmas. I made sure I asked her first, and he is a sensible kid..... but I did get some words from others about it!
You're making me feel bad about that rocket launcher I gave my 8 year old nephew for christmas.

Re: Family safety in Switzerland

..and then, when something does happen, people seem puzzled how it was possible. Mind you, a great many unfortunate events do take place, but they hardly make the news. Like the repeat sexual offenders who were able without any disguise proceed in the field of tending to children/disbaled/senile...or the unfortunate eventuality last year, where students died during fieldtrips...just because there is a overall lack of awareness concerning safety, does not necessarily mean it's safe. Just sayin'.

I think unfortunate events happen everywhere, for instance I just heard on the Spanish news that a Swiss woman killed her baby in some city in Spain and then tried to commit suicide. This is really sad, and even Swiss people are at risk of things happening to them. Still what is well-known is that the relative risk of a Swiss person or a person living in CH going through those unfortunate events are lower than many many places in the world including Europe.
And yes, that does not mean that we are 100% safe here, especially in Olten :P

You could ask the same of the ones you mentioned in your above post. If they aren't being reported, how can you compare statistics with anywhere?

Are you somehow privy to this information? Access to hospital / local authority / police records / hearsay?

I'm almost omnisapient..it's ridiculous...but on a more serious note, there are laws and regulations implemented in other places, which with a few exceptions would prevent certain occurrences. For instance in Switzerland, the neverending score of convicted paedophiles and sickos who seemingly keep getting readmitted into their respective profession, which is usually some form of caregiving be it children, the disabeled or seniles. In other places, there is an open list of registered sex offenders...a similar list is not allowed in Switzerland, for privacy reasons.

But my question (on a serious note, obviously) is how are you privy to this information if it's not reported.

This never-ending score of convicted paedophiles and sickos seemingly endemic in schools, care homes, etc.?

I could say there is an inordinate amount of bullfrogs buying Nissan Micras in Geneva but without at least some kind of statistics or back up it means sweet F.A.

You prompted Angela74 for statistics but then, ironically, went on to make some totally unfounded statements of your own.

I read plenty of newspapers and police report, thus the information.

I think stricter policing and tougher sentencing is required. Look how successful that has been in he US?
