    Study: Troubled homes better than foster care

    What can be said about this?

    A family (single or two parent or whatever) is an AMAZING THING even if its considered DYSFUNCTIONAL.

    Sorry to quote a biblical verse on this ONE
    I mentioned this in the POLYGAMY thread with RELATIONSHIPS FORUM. How one PAST MEMBER who is very POIGNANT had some problems in her FAMILY and particularly her SISTER.

    I have counselled FOSTER CHILDREN who had SEVERE PROBLEM when TROUBLES came because of LACK of SIBLING.

    For me its NO SURPRISE.

    But both groups still need to KEEP PRESSING. There is alot of FORETOLD events COMING.

    Oh well.

    Even the ABUSED MOTHER of DOMESTIC related MATTERS chose the TROUBLE over the SHELTER says

    Poor pick abuse over shelters, study finds

    This is POOR WOMEN most likey from GREATER SOCIETY. I know the FURTHER on is in CLASS the more OPTIONS you have like being INDEPENDENT man or woman.

    But again FAMILY this is an AMAZING THING for CHILDREN even if its DYSFUNCTIONAL.

    Oh well.

    Yes, we hear the horror stories of some foster care homes.


    But, I could never agree that it is in the best interests of a child to remain in a neglectful, physically, verbally, emotionally, and/or sexually abusive home just because those people are blood relatives.

    I could never place such a "family setting" over a "no relation" safe and structured home environment.

    There was a girl about 7 or 8 years ago who was in a foster home. Her aunt was her foster parent.

    The aunt would stick hypodermic needles in the little girl's eyes. The girl, i think, was 3 years old. The girl is now blind in her eyes. CPS came to the house but never took any action on the aunt until it was too late.

    Unfortunately, some foster parents use these children as a paycheck and nothing else.

    Well..I'd much rather leave the child in the home with the biological family and place support and services in the home as opposed to placing them in foster care without additional services.

    Overall..the child welfare shystem is overwhelmed in large part because of the systemic nature of this faulty and unjust system in place here in the West. Caseloads are too high, pay is too low, resources are scarce.

    As MsIntrepret shared...stories like that happen ALL TOO OFTEN when children are placed in a "safe" environment. They are forgotten.



    M.E.
