Well-being of SC's children

2 posts in this topic

The study found South Carolina ranks 46th in the well-being of children, placing it ahead of only Mississippi, Louisiana, New Mexico and Alabama.

The report states that South Carolina saw improvements in only three of 10 measures of child well-being, saw no change in two and experienced setbacks in five others since 2000.

Report highlights include the state ranking:

I was glad to see there was at least some effort put into getting the parents involved in their children. I am/was amazed at the lack of parental involvement in the lives of their children today. IMO, good parenting would solve most of these problems and lead kids to make good decisions. Wouldn't solve them all right away, it'd take a couple of generations.

Unfortunately, good parenting skills usually come only if you had good, involved parents.
