I have chosen to do my project about children separated from their families. This is a big problem that has been going around taking children from families.

This imagine shows that the kids that get taken away are forbidden to talk there native language.

This other imagine shows they are forced to change the way they dress and the way they look ,but they know they will never be able to change whats inside.

Kids are taken away at such a young age that they don’t even have time to spend time with their family and actually be happy and enjoy their young lifes.

Dear zuleika:
I am intrigued about your post, “child separation,” because this is something many people of different ethnicities struggle with. It’s not only a certain race/ethnicity.

One picture you added that stands out for me: was the first picture with a girl with a hand over her mouth.I think this is important to look at because when things happen to kids they are told to not talk about it. They feel they need to meet certain standards of their family. Some families can look at things as a ’shame’ and that creates the kids having to hold onto things or not talk about it.

Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because it is a really important topic that needs to be addressed.

i agree they shouldnt spread their kids from there family. Its just so sad because number one for what reason huh ? Once they grow up or start growing uo whos going to be there for them and when they need there parents ? its not right taking child from their parents like it should illegal . seperating their child can lead to anxiety and having fear. I just dont support the child separation.

I agree that child seperation is a serious issue that can affect children in the future and especially being how young they are they need a supportive environment so that they know they have someone to rely on. Family plays a great factors in a child’s life and that is something that every child needs .

One thing that has come to my attention lately is the growing numbers of child kidnaping during 2020. The black market that sells children is increasingly becoming more and more wealthy, and I find that really disturbing. I also find it cruel that the kidnapped child can’t even speak in their native language anymore.

Great piece, I strongly agree with your argument. Kids shouldn’t be taken away from their families. Especially at a very young age. They’re losing their childhood. Also, parents are losing the time to make memories with their children.
