Empower Parents to Protect Children

The editorial board of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram ran a blistering commentary on Tuesday (Feb. 21) about the state’s damaged Child Protective Services (CPS) agency and the rise of child sex trafficking.
the board wrote, paired with this tragic statement: “No child should ever be in the position that a pimp is the most appealing option for housing and food.”
For this reason ParentalRights.org is proud to be working with other organizations in a national coalition to promote reform at the federal level. We believe we can help sort out problems at the state level by improving the rules imposed on the states to receive federal funds.
Meanwhile, there are two Texas bills (unrelated to CPS) that we can get behind.
Both bills deal with “conservatorship,” the term used in Texas law to refer to the legal rights and responsibilities involved in the parent-child relationship. “Conservatorship” in Texas is synonymous with “custody” in most other states.
By monitoring and supporting bills like these and working to change federal and state laws, we can protect children by empowering parents. But we can’t do it alone! It’s your continued support that enables us to stand up for this vital cause. Thank you for your partnership in protecting children.
