There is an error in allowing the psychiatrist or psychologist to intervene. The professions have no science and can only complicate any proceeding.for the child.

It would be in the interest of the child to exclude any member of the mental health industry and allow the proceeding to be legally held without empowering the mental health industry or allowing any recognition of the mental health industry as to having knowledge in the relationship of child behavior, emotions or logic in child thinking and reasoning in thought on the subject.
