"No child left behind"
Be the revolution in child safety
Children don't choose the burials of divorce court. The burials of divorce choose them.
I read a funny joke online the other day. It said that one day a little boy named Joey came home from school and said to his mother, "Mommy, today in school I was punished and had to go to the principles office for something that I didn't even do."
His angry mother exclaimed, "That's terrible Joey! I'm going to have a talk with your teacher about this ... by the way, what was it that you didn't do?"
Joey replied, "My homework."
Maybe we're all guilty of not doing our homework. And burying the truth to cover it up. But, most of the time we don't run
to the hills far and wide outside of the school and publish it to the world before it gets graded in the classroom first. That's a train that once it leaves the station, then it can never come back and pick up any intentions left behind. Because once it's published, then that grade easily sticks forevermore.
Once parents leave the courtroom of divorce and no one sees what their children sees, then policies and practices likewise become invisible to each new generation. No one knows if any parent is doing their homework or not.
We all grew up in either one of two groups - Either with our nuclear family that was intact or with our nuclear family which was disconnected for whatever reason. And we see lawyers in divorce court along with legal cases battling in the second group dialing up the reports and gaming the system to their advantage. Cladding all of those current case files with past case laws. Never, above all, going back to reality to equally expose how or why the family and natural child safety ended in court. This creates a vacuum away from facts. Reality valleys for current and all future families. Like punishing future people outside of school weather or not little Joey did his homework today. A plot twist before he gets to turn it in.
