FLDS children, fostering, and SAH/WOH

It has been ruled that the state will retain custody of the FLDS children and that they will begin placement in foster homes. How do you feel about (among the many things to consider) the work status of potential foster parents? If both parents WOH, then the children will be in either daycare or school for part of the day. I don't think that these children are emotionally equipped to deal with that environment. If one parent can SAH however, I think a smoother transition could be made from the seclusion of the ranch to the introduction of the outside world through homeschooling. Can you imagine sending an 11-year-old FLDS girl into a public school classroom? She'd be eaten alive!

Thoughts?

The children aren't being taken away because of the parents' religious beliefs. The children are being taken away because the parents allow adults to have sex with the children. It has nothing to do with their religious beliefs.

Okay, so you've removed the girls from 11 to 16. Well, newsflash, a goodly percentage of those kids under 4 years old are the CHILDREN of those girls from 11 to 16. So you kind of HAVE to take them if you're taking their Moms, don't you? and in order to know which child goes with which Mom and which 50+year old man, you kind of have to do DNA testing.

I'm talking about the other 350 or so children that were taken away from their parents. Or does the actions of a few in a community condemn the whole community?

A goodly percentage? I don't think so. A goodly percentage are children of adult parents.

I didn't say a majority percentage. I said a goodly percentage. What percentage of the children were born to other children in that compound is permissible to you before "goodly" may be used to describe it?

<Any other trial would need a parent to give permission. Since noone knows, I guess they are at an impasse. Even so, I don't think there is any good reason to violate Constitutional rights against illegal search and seizure, even if people think there should be exceptions. People who think that make me ashamed. >


umm did I miss something I am not sure I understand where the illegal search and seizure was.

I don't know diddley about law, but I would think that the illegal search and seizure would be in taking samples from the kids without parental consent.

Enough to warrant removing ALL of the children in the community? It would have to be over half.
