Im wondering about the future for FLDS children who CPS workers are restoring to their parents on the YFZ Ranch. They will miss out on many things: a wider world, formal education, many choices offered by media and technology, vaccinations, a multi-cultural society, the possibility of female and male equality and many individual freedoms. They will also be spared many things that currently plague Americas children: drug abuse, vandalism, self-mutilation, suicide pacts, lack of family structure, lack of religious structure, capitalistic exploitation of their desire to grow up, etc. Unfortunately, they may be subjected to abusesexual or otherwise--in either camp. Both cultures seem to vent their frustrations on the little ones. Do you think the FLDS children are better off at home?
