create local parenting support groups and active parenting teams. This is something that they can work on to help their community to learn about the non-violent and healthy parenting styles.

It would have been great to when I was feeling stressed had someone to call to come help me with the children instead of them removed and my PTSD and mental problems became worst. IT is utter and total terror to have your loved children taken by strangers. The children get abused and are not loved the way they need to be. Try to help change the laws of government from taking children to assisting with local support meaning maybe a parenting assistant home to move to, have a trailer near by for extreme cases, for example. The terror of stealing our children has cost families to be torn apart, mental illness increases, and jail population.

This can work in conjunction with a community share card if they have those available in that area.
