Amaury Aguilera, the officer overseeing the investigation. "To just simply, so coldly, abandon her."As Venezuelans flee their country's collapsing economy and an autocratic government in rising numbers, a grim toll is becoming evident among the youngest arrivals in Colombia: Children are sleeping on the streets, suffering from hunger and untr

Commerce and Industry Minister Suresh Prabhu on Friday launched a mobile application -- ReUnite -- to trace missing and abandoned children in India.
"This effort to reunite parents whose children have gone missing is a wonderful use of technology to address real life social challenges," he said.

The photographs will not be saved in the mobile phone's physical memory.

migrants under the age of five to be reunited with parents in us

A Trump administration statement that all eligible migrant children under the age of five who were separated at the US-Mexico border will be reunited with their parents by Thursday morning (local US time) is being disputed by a civil liberties group.The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which sued the US government over its separation policies, is disputing the assertion made in Wednesday's statement."Their statement is vague at a minimum," ACLU lawyer Lee Gelernt said, noting that a San Diego judge had set a deadline of Tuesday for reuniting those children."We know they missed the deadline."Children under five will be reunited with their parents.AAPThe US government has said some children were not eligible for reunification because their parent had either been deported, had a crimina

'abandoned' dera kids have no claimants

Many children who were rescued from inside the controversial Dera Sacha Sauda in Sirsa in Haryana have not been claimed by parents or guardians even months after the "fall" of the sect. Authorities are in a fix in the absence of records that were required to be with the sect to establish if these children were surrendered by parents or kept there as orphans. Some of these kids are only five years. Ever since they were rescued from the Dera in September, none of their known ones have visited them. The children are under the care of the child protection unit which is now desperately looking for clues to unite them with parents. The officials aren't sure whether they were brought up as orphans at the Dera. Five-year-old Karamleen and six-year-old Sushleen are among those being tended to at th

scientists already know what happens when children are separated from their pare

We are all familiar with the heartbreaking images of children being separated from their parents at the United States–Mexico border and then placed in “tender age” centers.
There is nothing tender about this situation: In fact, there is little that is more traumatic to young children than to be separated from their parents and placed in institution-like settings.
The placement centers in Texas remind me a great deal of the institutions in Romania that my colleagues and I have studied for nearly 18 years.
The lessons we learned then taught us that housing children in institution-like settings, with rotating shifts of caregivers and unfavorable ratios of caregivers to children, may cause severe and permanent damage to their minds and bodies.

reunite separated families within 30 days: court to us border authorities

A judge in California has ordered US border authorities to reunite separated families within 30 days, setting a hard deadline in a process that has so far yielded uncertainty about when children might again see their parents.
If children are younger than 5, they must be reunified within 14 days of the order issued on Tuesday by US District Judge Dana Sabraw in San Diego Sabraw, an appointee of President George W Bush, also issued a nationwide injunction on future family separations, unless the parent is deemed unfit or doesn't want to be with the child.
It also requires the government to provide phone contact between parents and their children within 10 days.

600,000 children don't live with both natural parents: cbs

The number of children in the Netherlands who don’t live with both their natural parents has risen 200,000 to 600,000 over the past 20 years, according to national statistics office CBS.The figures, which date from 2015, show divorce is the reason why some 300,000 children don’t live with both their parents but there has also been a sharp rise in the number of single women giving birth.The CBS is also following a number of parents who have opted for co-parenting after divorce – which means the children move between two homes. Some 25% of divorced couples opt for co-parenting and 80% of the former couples in the CBS research maintained the dual home structure for at least two years.Co-parenting is most successful when parents are well off with little conflict and few personal problems, the

venezuelans are so hungry 'they have to loot to eat'

(PUERTO CABELLO, Venezuela) — The cab of Carlos Del Pino’s big rig gave him a nerve-rattling front-row seat to a surge in mob attacks on Venezuela’s neighborhood markets, cattle ranches and food delivery trucks like his.Shortly after pulling away from the docks at Puerto Cabello, the country’s biggest port, he witnessed 20 people swarm a truck ahead of him and in a frenzy fill up their sacks with the corn it was carrying to a food-processing plant. The driver was held at gunpoint.“It fills you with terror,” Del Pino said.He has hauled cargo for 14 years, and on a good month earns the equivalent of about $100, enough to support his wife and two daughters. Yet, despite his fears, he sympathizes with his impoverished countrymen, who are becoming desperate amid Venezuela’s widespread food shor

same-sex couples do not influence their adoptive children's gender identity

There is no major difference in the gender identity development of children raised by same-sex parents compared to those adopted by heterosexual couples. These are the findings of a new study in Springer's journal Sex Roles. Lead author Rachel Farr of the University of Kentucky in the US says that the toys that children prefer to play with in their preschool years are much more tell-tale about whether they will grow up to conform to typical gender norms or not.The study included 106 families headed by lesbian, gay or heterosexual parents. Farr and her team examine how gender-typical behavior develops over time within different family structures, and whether it remains relatively consistent as children grow older. The researchers observed the play styles and the toys that the families' pres

The United States is considering financial sanctions against Venezuela to restrict the OPEC nation's oil exports, according to a new report.The proposed US sanctions would halt dollar payments for Venezuela’s oil, Reuters reported Saturday, citing a senior White House official and an adviser with direct knowledge of the discussions.Financial sanctions preventing any transaction in US currency by Venezuela are among the various oil-related penalties under discussion by the administration of President Donald Trump, the two sources told Reuters.The US measures under discussion are similar to those that were imposed by the administration of former President Barack Obama against Iran over its civilian nuclear program, the two US officials said.The proposed financial sanctions would punish any U

parenting is always challenging, do we need a license for being a parent?

We need a licence as a proof of qualification for driving, teaching, doctoring and many more things. We believe that these things require professional qualification because it’ll be dangerous to have unqualified people perform these jobs.Parenting is not an easy job. How a child is raised shape the kind of person they become in future. But despite the fact that parents have a very great impact on their children, no license is needed for being a parent.Even the basic needs for a child can be a great challenge for parents.You must have heard about the many sleepless nights a parent has to get over when their baby wakes up in the middle of the night crying for food; or the many times a toddler just want to be held in the arms instead of walking in the street even though the parent is already
