Okay Cynique, you did well. You took your time and qualified your opinion.
I will agree, there are a multitude of problems associated with babies having babies.
The comparision I was making to the Jim Crow laws was that a chosen few would be judging other based on their perceptions/standards of "right".
What would be the quidelines or disqualifiers.
What, You can't be single (take away all babies of divorced parents.
2. You have to have a college degree (no G.E.D's are allowed)
3. You have to live in this neighborhood or that neighborhood ( project scum need not apply, but wait, my parents lived in the projects)
4. You have to prove that you have parenting skills (don't bring in your sisters and brother that you cared for since you were 13.
5. You have to bring in a note from BOTH of your parents (nope, birds of a feather flock together and if your father didn't sign it you are out of here)
6. You have to have a job that pays a certain amount before you apply (forget about that talk of paying your dues and learning from the ground up. When you get to be boss man, come holla at us)
As you so eloquently stated, those in charge of the agencies that serve and protect are somewhat at the root of the problem. So, who would write the policy for this Parent, eye-in-the-sky?
Yes, I agree, their is a correlation between single parents and the problems of the world but to minimize the other problems by not including them in the same breathe that may be just as harmful if not moreso, is an injustice and only serves to deepen the problem.
