Two children have been taken from the care of their mom, who has a learning disability, after a magistrate said “kisses and snuggles are not enough”.
The family court in Bournemouth heard there were concerns the children were neglected and their parents’ home was “cluttered and unhygienic”.
Judge Martin Dancey said although the girl, three, and one-year-old boy were loved, they needed “attuned parenting”.
The children will now be put up for adoption.
Judge Dancey said the 35 -year-old mother had a “mild learning disability” and was partly deaf in both ears. He said the woman’s 59 -year-old husband was her registered carer. Both had suffered from depression.
