At least the cynical indoctrination works here in my little kingdom. My youngest daughter just asked me if the world was going to be broke (broke, like when you drop a glas on a stone floor). I tried to avoid the question by saying that it was getting warmer. "But why are people using cars then?" she asked (I am not the only one to blame - the school is filing their heads with climate horror). I said I didn't know, and she started to draft a plan where secret spies removed all the cars and instead a brand new bicycle would await the undeserving culprits. I told her that it would be a bit of an undertaking, and she agreed, especially as it had to be done in one night so the rest of the profligates would be warned off. I added that they would probably also be pretty angry about it, and she agreed, but also had a solution to this: "We'll have to have the police in on this, so they can fine the ones complaining with 10,000 crowns".

When you are thinking up plans to save the world, totalitarianism is definitely the go to approach.

"We’re not trying to choose a political side. We’re choosing the side of speaking up for children who don’t have a voice."

We believe that we need to raise kids who have a fundamental belief in human respect and dignity of all people, and the power of respecting everyone. We believe that kindness is never wasted. We believe in a world where kids grow up, love learning, and always continue learning throughout their lives. What would the world be like if all children had access to the resources to become their best selves? By becoming their best selves, we mean: helping children become creative, caring, curious, and confident. When you think all the hopes and aspirations you have when you hold a small child in your hands, if we could make a world where those resources were available to children, so they can develop into their best selves and then grow to be adults that will change the world, what kind of better world could we have?

Our aspiration is that every kid would have those opportunities, which is how we were confronted with the realities of family separation. The conditions in detention centers. There’s this whole swathe of children that are not getting access to the resources they need; and the conditions and relationships with their parents and the adults in their world.

That’s really the conversation that had us then say, "We oughta say something about this."

Thousands of Immigrant Children Said They Were Sexually Abused in U.S. Detention Centers, Report Says


#politics #HumanRights #Abuse #Children #US #Immigration #Crime

The federal government received more than 4,500 complaints in four years about the sexual abuse of immigrant children who were being held at government-funded detention facilities, including an increase in complaints while the Trump administration’s policy of separating migrant families at the border was in place, the Justice Department revealed this week.

The records, which involve children who had entered the country alone or had been separated from their parents, detailed allegations that adult staff members had harassed and assaulted children, including fondling and kissing minors, watching them as they showered, and raping them. They also included cases of suspected abuse of children by other minors.
