PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- A review by Rhode Island's child advocate has found that four children died in the past year despite warnings from family, friends, police and others.

The findings in a report released Thursday by the Child Fatality Review Panel call for an overhaul of the way the Department of Children, Youth and Families Child Protective Services assesses risk and investigates calls placed to its hotline.

A spokesman for the Administration for Child Services responded Wednesday to criticism of the agency, after the deaths of multiple children at homes that were at one time probed by the agency.

He said it's important to understand that it takes multiple government factions -- and ultimately a judge -- to determine custody of a child in New York City, amid an average of 55,000 reports of child abuse per year. The most recent death was that of 1-year-old Bianca Abdul, who, according to police, was found unconscious inside a home in Midland Beach by her mother. Family told police there hadn't been heat in the home since November, and at one point a 12-year-old girl had been temporarily removed from the home, according to a NYPD spokeswoman.

Child welfare agencies were created to promote the safety and well-being of children. They investigate cases of family violence, child abuse, and neglect, and when necessary, they take protective action.

The goal of social workers is to keep children with their families when it is deemed safe and to provide them with a safe environment when they are determined to be at risk. Unfortunately, many cases are ignored or mishandled in such a way that the abused child continues to suffer. When social workers fail to act, the consequences can be deadly. Their negligence in these cases makes them almost as culpable as the perpetrators.

To protect children from the people who are paid to care for them, the General Assembly this month passed a bill that will crack open confidential files at the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services for prospective employers.

Senate Bill 236 will allow parents hiring babysitters - and it will require public schools and publicly funded youth camps hiring anyone who will work with minors - to ask job applicants for a letter from the cabinet that shows if they are one of the 92,418 people who presently have a "substantiated finding" of child abuse or neglect, as determined by a child protection caseworker. The bill prohibits schools and camps from hiring people who have such a black mark.

A report released Thursday by the Office of the Child Advocate (OCA) suggests the state of Rhode Island is not doing enough to protect at-risk children.

Upon analyzing the cases of four recent child fatalities and two near fatalities, the agency highlighted the need for drastic reform at the Department of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF).

If you've ever been visited by Child Protective Services, you know just how stressful and distressing it can feel. Even the best of parents can get frazzled when someone with the legal authority to take aware their kids is present.

Unfortunately, unless your civil rights are violated, you likely won't have any legal claim against Child Protective Services stemming from the agency's, or its representatives', routine actions. So, you likely won't be able to sue for emotional distress. However, when civil rights are violated, individuals can sue CPS, and these claims can be costly for cities.

A Democratic-sponsored bill that would set goals for reducing Texas child welfare workers' caseloads is laudable but needs more careful consideration, two key Republican writers of House social services policy said Monday.

Houston Democratic Rep. Armando Walle's measure would double-down on state GOP leaders' recent approval of 829 new positions at beleaguered Child Protective Services. The bill would encourage CPS to hire 893 more employees over the next two years and create an additional 825 slots at sister agencies such as Adult Protective Services, Child Care Licensing and the unit that operates the protective services department's hotline for reporting abuse, the Legislative Budget Board has estimated.

When our fourth born turned eleven and her older brothers and sister were delving into the world of JR Tolkien, a start contrast came into view. This child was struggling to read Junie B. Jones.

It was a confusing picture because there is no question she is very bright. She barely needs an explanation for difficult math concepts, she speaks two languages and is our best translator. She has excellent recall and problem solving skills, not to mention her amazing creativity, people skills and incredible work ethic. Yet, she was not reading smoothly after a home phonics curriculum and a year at public school, so we assumed she just needed some reinforcement. We did the reading program again from the beginning and then tried another program, reasoning that maybe she learns in a different way.

There are many different reasons why parents make the decision to home-school their children, and often, the results are extremely positive.

One nationwide study found that home-schooled students scored in the eightieth percentile for every test category, compared to the fiftieth percentile, which happens to be the national average.

This past week, President-Elect Trump invited Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to discuss Mr. Kennedy leading a vaccine safety commission. The mainstream media coverage of the meeting was widespread and furious.

The vaccine industry and its media lap dogs do not want their corruption exposed in any official forum, and they have pointed their fury at Mr. Trump and Mr. Kennedy. We have seen a great deal of media on Kennedy and his vaccine safety and corruption claims in the last week. The nice thing about that is this - because he has been in the mercury fight for so long, and started investigating the claims of moms of vaccine injured children more than a decade ago, his coverage has returned the spotlight to the corruption that was uncovered in the early days of the realization that the vaccine program was hurting our kids.
