NC bill would toughen rules for parent-child reunification

The court-appointed guardian for a toddler who drowned after he was reunited with his mother said Thursday that a bill to strengthen rules for when children are returned to parents would fix a small but important part of North Carolina's broken social services system.

I just have to point this out. North Carolina has had a couple articles come out over the last couple of days. One says that the state is having record numbers of kids aging out of the foster care system, the 2nd (above) is about a bill that would make it tougher for parents to get their kids back from foster care which would probably cause more kids to age out of foster care, wouldn't it?

There is something just wrong with this. It shows that legislators seriously need to be educated on these issues because all they are doing is voting for every feel good program that has the words "Child Abuse" in them with little to no understanding of the issue or the consequences.
More teenagers in North Carolina aged out of foster care in 2016 than in any of the previous 15 years, according to the Children’s Home Society.
