When it comes to our children, it is sometimes very difficult to know where to put an article or new information because it crosses many lines. You have child abuse by parents or those overseeing them in daycares, Child Protective Services, Pedophilia, Child Pornography, Human Trafficking and the legislators who for the most part know nothing about a bill they pass - only that some lobbyist wants it because he is getting paid and so is the legislator. The physical and mental abuse of our children is ruining them physically, emotionally and mentally along with ruining families and setting the path for it to continue for generations.
IT SHOULD NEVER HURT TO BE A CHILD!
MODERN CHILD WELFARE - Foster care is seen as an "industry" - a business where children become a commodity that profits doctors, lawyers, judges, social workers, advocates, and other organizations, an industry that can only exist by taking other people’s children, an industry that damages the very children it purports to be helping. The trauma inflicted on children by the foster care industry is inexcusable.
Molly McGrath Tierney, the former Director of the Baltimore City Department of Social Services stated, "we’re digging a wound so deep, I don’t believe we have a way of measuring it. This dismantling of families – it has enormous consequences. Kids that grow up outside of families – they don’t master the things that can only be learned in that context, like who to trust, how to love, and how to take care of yourself, and that frankly does more damage than the abuse and neglect that brought the kid to my attention in the first place".
