The Danish police arrested a father of a 16 year old girl only short time before he was about to send his daughter abroad. The daughter had become too Danish according to the father. She was dating a 21 year old man. When she was at her doctor to get shots against various diseases the doctor alarmed the authorities and the daughter is now in foster care at a secret location.
I understand the worries this father had. While I am born in Denmark I would still seek any information possible about such a young man if I had a 16 year old daughter who started a relationship with a so much older man. I would keep her and the young man very close so I would know what is going on.
I would never banish my daughter to a foreign country even taken into account that parts of my family comes from another country and they maybe could take her in.
Because as a second generation half immigrant I know fully what it takes to be successful in Denmark. It would not be punishment for her behavior. It would be lasting life-long damaging impact on her future robbing her of career options.
Knowing that there are options I could use which would be damaging if I utilized them, made the news coverage about Sofia Roberts (Petrova) hit me hard. I hope that the social services in Fairfax take a close look at the conditions Sofia’s half-siblings has to live under so future torment for the half-siblings can be avoided and the parents can be pressured to take Sofia back.
