Kids In Social Services Take a Stand sign now

My petition is basically saying that kids should have a voice in the social services system. I feel that we are not being heard at all. I am a kid in the social services system of Denver, Colorado, and through all the incidents that I have seen, the kid was not being heard. I understand that some kids are going through a lot and have behavioral problems; the real question is: Why do they have them?




Putting children on medication does not change the fact that they are not going through their struggles anymore. I know that medicines are drugs and it is just like taking marijuana. I feel that medication is avoiding the problem. Medication is a way of backing out and all it does is control the kid. The adult in the system can put their child on medication for doing drugs, but medication is a drug too and that is a proven fact. So instead of the first thing being "oh that she needs medication," talking should come first and I guarantee that when the child comes off the medication all of the problems are going to rehash.




I also feel that the child should not be shut down by someone that doesnt even know them. If the child has somethting important to say than it needs to be heard. I mean people will tell us thaat what we say is not true, but have you lived in the system?
