"It has been significantly evident during the course of the assessment that the continued prevalence of her ex-partner's contact with [A] has been a precipitating factor in [B's] being unwell. When [B] has had periods where her mental health has deteriorated, it has been linked with the timing of contact arrangements between [A] and his father and [B] has expressed how the continued prevalence of him in her life has made it very difficult to put the trauma that she has suffered behind her as this has been a constant trigger."
A has picked up, no doubt, on his mother's anxiety and that of his siblings and his reason for not wanting to see his father is because, "He used to hit mummy."
