How To Treat Families:



Most participants agreed that parents who
abuse or neglect their children should receive mental health counseling, parent
education, and mentoring by other parents.


·      
They
probably don’t know how to be a parent.


·      
They
weren’t raised the right way; they don’t know any different.


However, participants believed that some set
of punishments should be given parents who sexually abuse their children.
Others felt that the threat or the actuality of having a child removed is
sufficient punishment for a parent. If the root cause is homelessness or
hunger, then sending them to a parenting class probably is not going to be
helpful.
