Close the Cracks; Talking Heart2Heart

Close cracks


We have a lot of cracks in our system, and we must give our immediate attention  to these issues which threaten the success of our children. It’s important that we close the cracks to avoid any children falling through them. Our children are the future of tomorrow, but we are not investing in our most prize possession. Investments need a certain amount of attention to make sure that you get the best return for your money. Psalm 127:3 “Behold, children are a heritage from Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.”

Many of our children deal with neglect in one form or another, but it doesn’t seem to be a concern. What ever happened to the term “I am my brothers’ keeper”? The term of endearment expresses concern enough to get involved. The neglect is observed by family members, neighbors, bus drivers, and teachers to name a few.  These authoritative members stand on the sidelines in silence while the cracks continue to expand and children fall through.

The definition of neglect is failing to meet the needs which is also a form of abuse. So if children complain of hunger, have body odor, hair unwashed, inadequate clothing, dirty clothing, lack dental or medical attention then it’s clearly neglect. We can no longer stand by, and allow them to fall through the cracks when we have the ability to close the cracks. We have to report issues as we observe them for the sake of the children. Children are defenseless, so who will close the cracks for them?

Birthing children is not an automatic certification for becoming a parent and with the rapid growth of neglect it’s obvious. Psalm 139:13 “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.” There are so many young parents who lack the proper skills of parenting, so the neglect may not be intentional. One’s ability to parent is based on the level of one’s understanding, and when a young parent is a part of this equation neglect is sometimes inevitable.

Often times young parents don’t realize the dependency children need, and the attitude is they are fine or they have to learn to be independent one day. But the level of intelligence of parents can definitely affect children negatively, and many times it results to neglect. So we must take into consideration that parents do what they know until they are given other alternatives. Mark 9:37 “Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me, receives not me but him who sent me.”

When you offer these alternatives, it may not be accepted well. Because parents become defensive, but for the sake of the children we must be willing to accept the challenge. This is the only way to close the cracks, so even with the attitude, defensiveness, and unwillingness it’s worth saving the children. This process will not be easy, and it may even be necessary to separate the parent from the child for a short period. All of which must be done for the well-being of the children.

Close the Cracks to avoid any children falling through…

Closing the cracks is harmful to the future of our children, so we can’t waste any time moving on this issue. There are resources available to both the parent and the neglected child. Parents need to know how to care for children, so offering parenting classes, support groups, family support, counseling, and professional therapy will help with this issue.

Neglectful parents need to be taught how to meet the basic needs of children, such as feeding, clothing, keeping them safe, providing medical and dental care. Parents must parent by preparing meals, bathing children, and dressing them appropriately which is caring for them. Because young children need constant supervision because of their lack of ability to sense danger.

The cracks will only be closed if we all address this issue as if it affects us personally. The only way to close the cracks is for everyone to attack this issue by becoming involved in your community. We have to be present in the moment now because the future of our children literally depends on it. We can no longer close our eyes or our hearts to an issue as serious as neglect. If you witness this type of behavior which is clearly neglect, you must close the crack and save the children.
With that being said, will you help us close the cracks? Please leave your comment below.
