A friend has been fostering two teen girls 16 and 18 for several months. Sad situation - mom in jail, no where to go, etc. They've caused her quite a bit of heartache and trouble, cutting school, staying out all night, etc., but she is determined to see they are safe and graduate from high school. But of course, they don't like her rules. Especially the older one. She claims that now that she is 18 - no one can tell her what to do. So she complained to DYFS that the rules were too strict, and she could not live there anymore. DYFS has set her up in her own apt, courtesy of the tax payers. SHE IS STILL IN HIGH SCHOOL!!! She cannot even get herself up in the morning. I have mentioned on this board that there is an epidemic of teen pregnancies in our school. There is no doubt that some of these girls see welfare as a way out of their parents' homes. Now it seems they don't even have to get pregnant to get their own crib. Is this insane or what?
