The Department of Women and Child Protection in the General Department of Human Rights in Dubai Police managed to solve the problem of a 17-year-old child who resorted to the Child Protection Department to convince his father not to force him to study the same specialty as his father.
Regarding the details of the incident, the head of the Child Protection Department, Maitha Al Balushi, said that the child came with his mother to the headquarters of the Women and Child Protection Department, requesting intervention to persuade his father to reverse the decision to force him to repeat high school, to obtain a percentage that qualifies him to study at the same college in which the father graduated.
The student confirmed that his father was a successful person in his field of work, and he aspired to follow his example in study and work, but he was unable to obtain a high school percentage that would qualify him to enter the same college, despite his constant diligence in studying.
Al-Balushi added that the department communicated with the father, and explained to him the need to respect his son's right to express his opinion, and determine his academic and professional path, noting that the father understood this right, and respected his son's desire to resume his studies according to his choice, and the son was advised to involve his father in his affairs. He sought his opinion, and the problem ended with the understanding of all parties, without prejudice to the rights of the child, or affecting family ties.
