Helplessly Abandoned

Helplessly Abandoned

Dear Editor;

I can’t believe that when you call ACS for help, all they do is give you the runaround.

I have a 15 year old who is uncontrollable and I have called ACS for help and no one can help me.

My daughter leaves Far Rockaway High School and no one cares, but if she gets hurt they come blaming me. I wanted information on putting her into a boot camp and no one can help me. These children are too wild and when a parent asks for help they turn their backs.

I was told by a police officer that if my daughter calls them and states that I hit her, I can go to jail. But when I call to see if I can get some help they say nothing. We need to get some kind of program to help parents that need help, something like a boot camp or a scared straight program for these teens.

People keep saying the children are our future, so why when a parent asks for help no one knows what to do?

FRUSTRATED MOTHER
