Too Poor to Parent

Leave a comment

I found the article by Burroughs very intriguing.  I think that instead of the case workers taking the womens children they should have tried to help the mothers out with some of their payments.  For example, Lisa had food and a roof over her childrens head but she did not have enough money to pay the electric bill.  If the case worker had helped her out with the bill then the food would have not spoiled and she would have been able to keep her children. No parent should have to go through the horrible experience of losing their children just becasue they are to poor.  Even if they dont have money they obviously love their children more than anyone else will.  The children would also be much more comfortable if they got to grow up with their own mother instead of being thrown into foster care.
