    No accountability at the custodial homes, FBGH or BBH??

    How does this keep happening?

    The missing/runaway teen stories seem to be increasingly common lately. What is being done about this situation? It is getting to the point that is is comical. Never any indication that they are taken against their will. If the parents are not going to supervise/discipline the children, why is anyone bothering to report them missing? Why is time being wasted bothering to look for them? Let them go to worship their God, who or whatever that is, and peace be with them. If they don’t like home, let them leave unless the parents are going to do something about the situation.

      They are running away from institutional children homes – not family homes. They are in those homes for a reason. Two obvious questions are why the supervised care they are meant to be under allows them to runaway, followed closely by how come no one ever seems to be charged for “sheltering” them.

        Kids landing in those homes aren’t necessarily troubled teens themselves, some just from rough backgrounds. Their parents are sometimes in jail, on drugs, or dead. It’s not their fault. They shouldn’t be treated like broken hopes by these facilities or the public. Give them safety and comfort so they can finally stop fleeing a lifetime of abuse.
