Study: Troubled homes better than foster care

Children whose families are investigated for abuse or neglect are likely to do better in life if they stay with their families than if they go into foster care, according to a pioneering study.

The findings intensify a vigorous debate in child welfare: whether children are better served with their families or away from them.

Kids who stayed with their families were less likely to become juvenile delinquents or teen mothers and more likely to hold jobs as young adults, says the study by Joseph Doyle, an economics professor at MIT's Sloan School of Management who studies social policy.

"The size of the effects surprised me, because all the children come from tough families," Doyle says. The National Science Foundation funded the study.

What can be said about this?

A family (single or two parent or whatever) is an AMAZING THING even if its considered DYSFUNCTIONAL.

Sorry to quote a biblical verse on this ONE
Proverb 17:17 A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.

I mentioned this in the POLYGAMY thread with RELATIONSHIPS FORUM. How one PAST MEMBER who is very POIGNANT had some problems in her FAMILY and particularly her SISTER.

I have counselled FOSTER CHILDREN who had SEVERE PROBLEM when TROUBLES came because of LACK of SIBLING.

For me its NO SURPRISE.

But both groups still need to KEEP PRESSING. There is alot of FORETOLD events COMING.

Oh well.

Yes, we hear the horror stories of some foster care homes.

But, I could never agree that it is in the best interests of a child to remain in a neglectful, physically, verbally, emotionally, and/or sexually abusive home just because those people are blood relatives.

I could never place such a "family setting" over a "no relation" safe and structured home environment.

There was a girl about 7 or 8 years ago who was in a foster home. Her aunt was her foster parent.

The aunt would stick hypodermic needles in the little girl's eyes. The girl, i think, was 3 years old. The girl is now blind in her eyes. CPS came to the house but never took any action on the aunt until it was too late.

Unfortunately, some foster parents use these children as a paycheck and nothing else.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
