It 's wrong because 65% of these 18 year olds that are booted out of foster care don 't have a job nor have anywhere to go. Most of them go and live their lives in the streets.

Rather than give them piecemeal, why not just treat them as adolescents?
Each year, a pool of thousands of homeless youth get commonly overlooked and misjudged throughout the United States. “In the 2013-2014 school year alone, it was reported that there were approximately 1.3 million homeless youth enrolled in the public-school system” (United States). Despite the enormous number of children homelessness affects, the public eye remains ignorant on the topic. Some people try to go blind to the number while others decide to look down upon those it hurts, rather than assessing and improving the situation. Until society gains knowledge of both the causes and effects these adolescents face daily, the ever-growing epidemic will continue to show no signs of improvement.

This would reduce by a huge volume the number of youths who end up in jail for committing offences, whether petty or serious crimes. Such reformed youth, after being accepted back into the society, will help in economic growth. Such legislation would also shift responsibility to the older generation to dictate moral and constitutional adherence to be followed by the younger generation. This is proven by a research carried out by the Society for Investigating the Causes of the Alarming Increase of Juvenile Delinquency that found that the causes of crime were firmly rooted in the low moral condition of parents and parental neglect (Arthur, 2010). A shift of responsibility to parents would consequently result to lesser criminal prosecutions as the society will have a sound environment in which young people are raised up
Eighteen percent of children depend on afterschool programs to provide a secure and encouraging environment, stimulate learning, and fill the gap between when the school day ends and when the workday ends. In communities across the United States, it has been proven that 11.3 million children are without supervision between the hours of three and six p.m. Thus, the need for afterschool programs is continually increasing; therefore, it is important that as a community the focus on the implementation and improvement of these programs are a priority so that children participating in these programs receive the best care and attention. Additionally, many children who participate in afterschool programs benefit in several ways. Although some parents are uncomfortable with enrolling their children in afterschool programs,
90% of homeless mothers have reported at least once in their life time of experiencing being physically and or sexually abused, often while the children are watching.

The study concluded that parents who had experienced corporal punishment as a child were more likely to believe it was an acceptable and in turn their children began to consider spanking as an appropriate disciplinary method (Smith, par. 15). However, some researchers disagree with the validity of these studies.
88 percent of adoptive parents describe themselves as a “happy” couple, while 83 percent of non-adoptive parents describe themselves as a “happy” couple… 62 percent of children adopted privately are placed with the adoptive family when they are newborns or less than one year old”(American Adoptions). Kids or babies are put up for adoption if their original parents don’t want to take care of them anymore, so the parents have the option to put their child up for adoption. Which will allow the child to have a fun filled and exciting life with a family who would take care of them better than their original parents would. Similarly to The Giver by Lois Lowry it stated that in the community parents in waiting are hand given a baby with a name already.
Healthymeals.fsn.usda.gov says “dieting, weight concerns, and body dissatisfaction have recently been reported in children as young as 7 to 9 years old” this study was done a couple of years ago but just imagine with the incline in social media how much more of a problem this is now then it was. Using sports is an easy way for kids to feel healthy which is very important for juveniles and school sports may be the only way they can be in a sport so if there favorite sport or maybe the only sport their parent allows them to play is taken away then how are they going to try and help themselves improve their
