HELP PARENTS WITH DISOBEDIENT CHILDREN, CHANGE THE CYCLE!
Parents are faced with impossible and unfair circumstances. If a child runs away, violates truancy, threatens or attacks their parent or parents the parent must in turn, continue a cycle of back/forth.
Our children’s defiance has grown out of control with disrespect and sometimes violence because the Dept of Social Services, Children’s Division has enabled this behavior at the cost of the parent. Everyone is intimidated by something or someone, but the kids have no rules set before them and are out of control.
A good parent goes above and beyond, doing whatever it takes to get their child inline; however, several parents are being faced with impossible unfair situations, while rearing or attempting to discipline their children. Some children believe they can fight their parents or run away and there is nothing the parents can do. Which at this point is very true. If a child runs away and the parent closes the door its neglect or abandonment, if the child isn’t attending school the parent can face criminal charges to include being placed in jail, etc.
*THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT BE ABLE TO DICTATE THE RULES OF OUR HOUSEHOLDS, ESPECIALLY DEALING WITH DEFIANT CHILDREN! PETITION NOW, please sign.
Please take part in giving parents a voice and ask that the Officials over the Department of Social Services Children’s Division revise their goal to include better assistance for parents in need, rather than parents feeling threatened or numbed by these same goals set forth for the children.
For more information on the Dept of Social Services Children’s Division, Child Abuse and Neglect Goals go to: http://www.acf.hhs.gov/
or go to your local states webpage to review.
We the undersigned hereby petition the Department of Social Services, Children’s Division to develop and implement a new revised strategy to improve the goals set forth under Child Abuse and Neglect.
Support for parents is greatly needed under the current goals, but it has thus far been nonexistent. Parents should be able to maintain a safe and stable environment for “all” residing under one roof. Children are not taking parents seriously, this is mostly due to the fact they know the parents cannot enforce rules and regulations in their household with out the fear of being prosecuted.
Children have to know that defiance will not stand without consequence. When it is evident that the problem is result of a defiant child who refuses to follow rules, parents should not be subject to criminal charges, jail, fines, court appearances and a caseworker monitoring their household.
Parents should not have to have a door that is revolving to a child that: consistently runs away, is constantly kicked out of school, that becomes physical and/or destructive.
We are respectfully requesting that Department of Social Services, Children’s Division and/or the officials that govern it, put a change into place for the better of all parties involved. Parents should not feel helpless with regard to their children nor should they feel intimidated or chastised by the government.
Sincerely the undersigned Parents of America,
