Protection Of Youth In Foster Care (Draft)

Postby Grey County » Tue Feb 23, 2021 11:15 am

This is my first draft and would love to hear your ideas on it.
I understand it probably needs a lot of work but I decided that the first draft doesn't need to be perfect It just needs to be something.
So here it is, enjoy.

(made minor punctuation edits along with wording edits but no changes to content so far)
(made wording edits)



Protection of Youth in Foster Care
The World Assembly,
Noting that not all parents can provide the necessary support that young children and youth need,

Acknowledging abortion is not always an option and just because it isn't that it doesn't mean they are ready to support and provide for a baby,

Acknowledging that the foster care system is a necessary thing that provides the support and resources that young children and youth need,

Noting that in some scenarios the system can inadvertently or maliciously be taken advantage of and cause damage to the people in the system,

Noting that there is a need for international regulations and restrictions to protect the youth and young children that so desperately need the support of the system hereby,

1. Defines;
a). Foster Care as the care of youth and young children that are not able to be cared for by their biological parents in the hope that they can be adopted,

b). Foster Parent as a person who is charged with the care of fostered youth before they are adopted,

c). Fostered youth as a person under the age of legal competency who’s in the Foster Care system,

2.Mandates;

a). Member states to put in place an extensive approval process that must include these aspects; A background check, A home inspection, and an interview of the prospective Foster Parents,

b). Member states conduct post-placement inspections to make sure that the Foster Parents are providing suitable support, shelter, and resources for the Fostered youth,

c). Member states to Provide funding to the foster care system to ensure that prospective foster parents can receive training and help to prepare for a Fostered Youth to join their home,

d). Member States to create Fines and punishments for Foster Parents who act to the detriment of the fostered youth. For example: Abusing the Fostered youth or using money from the Member State that was intended to help the fostered youth for their own personal reasons that do not benefit the fostered youth,

e). Member States to provide training and resources to Prospective Foster Parents who wish to foster a Fostered Youth with a disability,

f). Member states apply same strict protocols be applied to individuals who wish to adopt a fostered youth,

e). Member States to ensure that Fostered Youth are receiving the same quality education as non-fostered youth.

I think you could do with changing that whole first acknowledging clause to something to the effect of, "acknowledging that abortion is not always an option," and you should reword the last noting clause not to include saying "general assembly," because right now it reads as follows: The World Assembly, noting that the general assembly needs to put in place..." and you should end the preamble with just "hereby;" Other than that, looks pretty good.

OOC: Welcome to the WA. Let me start by saying thank you for 1, drafting first and 2, not picking a horrifically contentious repeal as your first foray. A couple of suggestions:

You may want to review https://forum.nationstates.net/viewtopic.php?p=3123204#p3123204, which is a prior resolution defining the rights of orphaned children, which includes those abandoned by their parents. I do not think you are contradicting or necessarily duplicating, but I also do not have time at the moment to really check that.

A second note, remove references to specific ages (why did you pick 19 anyway?). You can replace it with a reference to "age of legal competence" which has a specific definition in the WA already that I think will cover what you intend anyway.


I may have some more later, but I am on a time crunch. Good luck, author!

Thank you. I will have a look at that an I will use the age of legal competence phrase instead . As why I used 19 in my RL nation that is the age of legal competence.
