In response to: “DJJ Investigators warned by About Unfinished Cases.”

My comment: Our nation’s children are being prosecuted for breaking the law because Dept. of Juvenile Justice refuses to join with Dept. of Family & Children Services in working with parents to help with children who break the law. Who do you think are responsible for raising children. Yes you are correct, parents are responsible. So how did the nation come up the idea to prosecute a child without finding out what’s going on within the home?

  1. The idea is called the Dept. of Juvenile Justice. Children are sent to Youth Detention Centers without their parents being considered the cause of the problem. A parent’s job is being responsible for their children, knowing where they are at all times, knowing the parents of children their child associates with, discipline, love, time spent with child (MOST IMPORTANT). Teaching child right and wrong, treating children with respect, listening and respecting their ideas and considering those ideas. Letting the child help with solving a problem gives the child a voice and self-esteem. The child watches his/her parents. Not what the parent says to them. Being a good moral role model is so important. I realize we don’t study and have to pass an exam before we become parents. Most of us do the best we can with the knowledge we have. Please contact your state representative with this problem and ask them help change the law.

    In addition, see an article on the “” web site entitled: “Make Families of Detained Juveniles Part of the Solution.” Here is the beginning of the article: “Every day, nearly 50,000 children are forced to spend the night away from their families because of their involvement in the juvenile justice system, according to a new report. It’s not as if these youth have no one to care for them. Families of young detainees care deeply about their children, but often feel helpless […]. DJJ System “practically shuts our parental involvement”?

    My comment: Did I hear you say DJJ System “practically shuts out parental involvement”?

    I worked for GA DHR Department and Family Services as a social service worker. During that time I found your statement to be true.. At a workshop in Atlanta for workers from DJJ System and Department of Family & Children Services, I stood and addressed this problem. The speaker of the workshop made no comment, but DJJ workers stood and said my statement was not so. After all, they would lose their jobs if DJJ and DFCS joined as one department to work with children and their parents.

  2. When I Was 12 I Stole $14 From My Dad Wallet He Beat Me With A Belt And Told Me You Want It You Earn It Like A Man.
    I Never Stole Again. Today If You Beat Kids With A Belt The Parents Go To Jail.

  3. I just couldn’t resist commenting about the missing money and the tax office. I can’t believe in this day and age that and employee that works in the courthouse would take money from a safe and place it in a chair and walk across the street for breakfast leaving the money in the chair. My question is what was wrong with the safe in the first place? I think that after there is and audit that we will find out that there’s more than $40,000 dollars missing which is usually the case.
