We are fighting an uphill battlet. But a battle that can be won! Our children are our children. As adults it's our responsibility to protect them;educate them and make sure they know that they're NOT ALONE and that as adults,we are there for them.

Relationship is the key. when we're told what we need instead of finding out what are needs are. we are helping the services more than we're helping our children.

Telling them what they need does no good and usually ends up with a low success rate. Why not educate them by showing them what is available for thier needs and how to access it.Allow them to choose what needs fit thier purpose and at the sametime empower them with the ability of self confidence.

really 59% of you believe people are served best when told what to do, You really need to stop and think about that. So lets say the government which it already has, in New York, told you only one 16oz. soda a day, thats all you can have because it's bad for you. Really they think we're that stupid. No shit it's bad for you, but I don't need mayor bloomberg telling me and my family that they can not have soda. That is up to parents not a mayor. So I say, give the freedom back to the people...

Come on people wake up
