It is a tough topic to take on when most are simply trying to meet basic needs, stay married and not mess their kids up. There has to be a middle ground somewhere and many can't see what that would be for them. Some don't want to.
I think you are spot on, as always! It is a huge issue here. Our new report card has changed the component of parent involvement to parent engagement. Effective this upcoming licensing year, We have to offer a parent engagement opportunity monthly as well as two conferences a year.....I do NOT feel providers can FIX this gulf between appropriate parenting/just parents that hang around like the buddy system but the state is pushing for us to TRY!
