Just as the “Family” is the foundation of society, the Father-Mother relationship is the foundation of the family; consequently, strengthening Mother-Father relationships can only lead to stronger families, children and communities, as well as a stronger economy.
Children thrive with the active involvement of both parents. Children and parents should be encouraged to spend substantial time with each other regardless of the parents’ present relationship status. I realize and recognize that absent issues of abuse, neglect or abandonment, social and government policy must be structured in such a way as to promote and maximize the opportunity of all parents to contribute to the social, emotional, intellectual, physical, moral and spiritual development of their children.
The Children’s Rights Blog was formed to give PARENT’S an outlet for support and to share their stories. These are not “PARENTS” who are out to avoid financial obligations or to ignore their children. These are PARENTS who are heart-sick, worried, scared and frustrated by not being able to spend time with their children. These are PARENTS who are fighting desperately for normal every day contact with their children.

– A child has the right to:
• A continuing relationship with both parents.
• Be treated not as a piece of property, but as a human being recognized to have unique feelings, ideas, and desires consistent with that of an individual.
• Continuing care and proper guidance from each parent.
• Not to be unduly influenced by either parent to view the other parent differently.
• Express love, friendship, and respect for both parents: freedom from having to hide those stated emotions or made to be ashamed of such.
• An explanation that the impending action of divorce was in no way caused by the child’s actions.
• Not to be the subject and/or source of any and all arguments.
• Continuing, honest feedback with respect to the divorce process and its impact on the changing relationships of the family.
• Maintain regular contact with both parents and a clear explanation for any change in plans and/or cancellations.
• Enjoy a pleasurable relationship with both parents, never to be employed as a manipulative bargaining tool.
• The obligation of being a parent does not end after a divorce. It is extremely important to understand that the bond of marriage is completely different from that of parents. This is the most common down fall in today’s society, as a dissolution of marriage takes place so does that of parenting.

Why Support Kids Deserve Justice? Because of kids like Julie and others who need our help.
Imagine being beaten and neglected by your parents and spending years in the foster care system. As heart-breaking as that scenario sounds, can you further imagine being confined to a wheelchair and having to wear a helmet and other protective gear because of your physical disability? That happened to “Julie,” who was diagnosed with a pervasive developmental disorder.
Taking care of a child is never easy, but Julie’s care required special attention. Julie needed help to eat, bathe, brush her hair, and go to the bathroom. Julie’s foster parents were able to see past her physical limitations, and fell in love with her spirit. Julie’s foster parents were anxious to adopt her and become her “real” parents. However, they needed financial support to tend to Julie’s many needs.
Legal aid attorneys helped Julie’s parents obtain the full adoption subsidy and helped Julie get the full benefit from Social Security to which she was legally entitled. Thanks to Legal Aid and The Florida Bar Foundation, Julie is safe, protected, and loved by her adoptive mom and dad.

Children’s Bill of Rights
WHEN PARENTS ARE NOT TOGETHER ~~
Every kid has rights, particularly when mom and dad are splitting up. Below are some things parents shouldn’t forget — and kids shouldn’t let them — when the family is in the midst of a break-up.
You have the right to love both your parents. You also have the right to be loved by both of them. That means you shouldn’t feel guilty about wanting to see your dad or your mom at any time. It’s important for you to have both parents in your life, particularly during difficult times such as a break-up of your parents.
You do not have to choose one parent over the other. If you have an opinion about which parent you want to live with, let it be known. But nobody can force you to make that choice. If your parents can’t work it out, a judge may make the decision for them.
You’re entitled to all the feelings you’re having. Don’t be embarrassed by what you’re feeling. It is scary when your parents break up, and you’re allowed to be scared. Or angry. Or sad. Or whatever.
You have the right to be in a safe environment. This means that nobody is allowed to put you in danger, either physically or emotionally. If one of your parents is hurting you, tell someone — either your other parent or a trusted adult like a teacher.
You don’t belong in the middle of your parents’ break-up. Sometimes your parents may get so caught up in their own problems that they forget that you’re just a kid, and that you can’t handle their adult worries. If they start putting you in the middle of their dispute, remind them that it’s their fight, not yours.
Grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins are still part of your life. Even if you’re living with one parent, you can still see relatives on your other parent’s side. You’ll always be a part of their lives, even if your parents aren’t together anymore.
You have the right to be a child. Kids shouldn’t worry about adult problems. Concentrate on your school work, your friends, activities, etc. Your mom and dad just need your love. They can handle the rest.
IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT AND DON’T BLAME YOURSELF.
