As a caseworker, the point of being in the school is to try to avoid the children from being removed from neglectful and/or abusive homes. To be proactive, rather that reactive!! Also to keep children from entering into the legal system, to work with them and their families to keep them off of probation/PINS.

Good luck with that. It sounds good on paper, but the youth nowadays and their parents just don't care. The idea maybe should have been implemented 5 or 10 years ago when the juveniles were't as common as they are today. It wouldn't hurt to try either, however, in my experience once they start down that path, there is little to no chance of them turning back

I spent 7 years in a foster home in Lisbon. I was mentally and sexually abused on a daily basis. I have chronic and severe PTSD and am unable to work. I still have nightmares of fighting off the foster father every night. I endured because they had horses.

Why would you want to return them to an abusive home?

EXCUSE me, at the age of 11 I walked to OPD and had them put me in foster care to get away from a psychotic mother. Either way I was screwed.

How DARE you say what you did, fizzy cool. You are a total ass for making assumptions about people. I never did harm to anyone in my whole life. All I wanted was for my mother to love me, but it was clear I was unloved, unwanted and a burden.

If the parents were decent role models to begin with, the kids wouldn't be in need of case workers. Children become what their parents let them become for the most part. All those kids out walking the streets at 3AM for instance...do you think their parents even know where they are? I think the curfew needs to be enforced, and parents held responsible for their kids actions, like the law says. Instead, the kids get in trouble, and the parents push them off onto PINS or Probation to deal with them and then claim " I've done all I can do ".
Maybe we need to jump back a hundred years when kids were taught by way of GOOD parents and maybe a trip or two to the woodshed to respect their elders and authorities, instead of a 13 year old telling a cop to go F$@* himself. Kids need to learn to be responsible. If a kid gets in trouble in school, they get three days of home suspension. The kid looks at this as a three day vacation...what could be better? All that does is reward bad behavior. You wouldn't even do that with a dog, but it's accepted punishment for a kid.
And what kind of adults are these kids becoming? Drug dealing scum with kids with several different people and living off welfare, teaching their kids to proudly use the benefit card at the grocery store. This is a sad situation all the way around.

Are you looking for a job while you sit on your cry baby rear end? You have the internet, do something in life instead of reliving your past. Fuzzy was right, soliders come home with PTSD and they work...

Not that anyone cares but when I realized the pervert foster father was molesting his 5 year old grand daughter I told the foster mother what the sick bastid had been doing to me for years. She called me a liar and kicked me out, which I knew would happen. I should have told my CASEWORKER. He is still probably molesting any little girl he can get his hands on.

Are you going to tell the helpless 5 year old who is now grown to get over it? To make her own nightmares and flashbacks stop? You are despicable!

If you think about it our government spends billions and billions on the war in Iraq and provides "Corporate Welfare" bail-outs for big companies like citibank and GM and AIG... Companies where the millionaire CEO has run the business into the ground. Can I ask you....Who is paying for that?...We can put a man on the moon, and develop weapons guidance systems and smart bombs but we can't can't seem to figure out how to to place an 11 year old girl in a safe foster home in our own community and country? Do we save the world but forget about our own?
