When the Bough Breaks: The Effects of Homelessness on Young Children
Of course when the government invades a "Good
Enough" family, kidnaps the kids and makes them Legal Orphans, they most
certainly become HOMELESS, don't they? And as this Socialist nightmare
continues spreading the misery upwards, when and where does it end?
to the National Center on Family Homelessness, about 1.6 million
children were homeless annually in America between 2006 and 2010.
Children without stables homes are more likely to than others to repeat a
school grade, be expelled or drop out of high school. Homeless
preschoolers are more likely to have a major developmental delay, and
have higher rates of internalizing and externalizing behaviors than
their peers. To reduce the presence of these behaviors, and improve
outcomes for homeless children, access to high-quality child care and
early education is essential. This brief concludes with several policy
recommendations that could help mitigate negative outcomes.
