“SB 18, as introduced, Pan. Bill of Rights for Children and Youth in California.
Existing law provides for the care and welfare of children and youth in various contexts, including, but not limited to, child welfare services, foster care, health care, nutrition, homeless assistance, and education.

Assembly Concurrent Resolution No. 80 (Res. Ch. 101, Stats. 2009) declares the Legislature’s support of a Bill of Rights for the Children and Youth of California that resolves to invest in all children and youth in order to achieve specified goals to create an optimal environment for their healthy development.”

“An act relating to children and youth.”

  • Youth are regarded as minors, with equal right’s and protection by law. However, not responsible for themselve’s in regards to caretaking, and legal consequence.
  • Why? Due processing? Evidence that supports the need for legislation to be introduced for laws to be created? Rationale from the citizen’s or establishments who are being represented by the author of the legislation? Evidence to support the need for the measure and concern?
  • Proof of necessity? Why not address the system’s in place to best address the outcomes that the state wishes to see by law? Why not add to the current structure of the various established programs?

“This bill would declare the intent of the Legislature to expand and codify the Bill of Rights for Children and Youth of California to establish a comprehensive framework that governs the rights of all children and youth in California, outlines the research-based essential needs of California’s children, and establishes standards relating to the health, safety, well-being, early childhood and educational opportunities, and familial supports necessary for all children to succeed.”

  • Due process? Facts to support the need to govern by law all children more than it is currently being governed by the law. Facts that support the notion that the government has a right or rationale to create a specific standard of care for all children in California?

“The bill would declare the intent of the Legislature, by January 1, 2022, to enact legislation for the purpose of ensuring that the Bill of Rights for Children and Youth of California, in its totality, is applied evenly, equitably, and appropriately to all children and youth across the state.”

  • California currently has longstanding law’s that protect, provide, and ensure human right’s for the children of California. We currently have over 300 organizations that pertain to serving our children here. We have a current budget that shows over half of the funds going into education and health care for 2017. California’s children have the highest level of support, resources, access, programs, safty, health care, educational institutions, religious organizations, and extra curricular programs in the world. We use the guidelines for the law’s and programs in California based off of the United Nations children’s right’s formula. Essentially, children here in this great state could always use more of something. Unfortunately, not every child is able to have all of the numerous developmentally helpful resources that they deserve. However, declaring by law how, where, when, and what ways the children of California are cared for isn’t protecting or providing something for all children. It is essentially controlling how children live their live’s. Parent’s and legal guardians are the responsible parties responsible for compliance of the law’s provided for their children. Children by law are minors. They are treated as such by law. Children’s parent’s and caretakers are responsible for their children, by law in every respect of their live’s. So, is this measure written for the children of California or for the State to declare the law’s for the responsible parties of the children?

Children’s parent’s and caretakers are responsible for their children by law. So, to right a law in California which the state declares what all children here have a right to receive by enforcing legal consequence, if/when a parent or caretaker does not comply with the California code for children’s right’s by law. Who is ultimately and unequivocally responsible for the children of California? Declaring the right’s of children is currently established by law. Currently more children’s protection law’s are being written, and even enforced. Sex trafficking decriminalization of minors. Medical privacy and consent of treatment by minors. Mandatory vaccinations for all school children, etc.

“Vote: majority Appropriation: no Fiscal Committee: no Local Program: no


BILL TEXT
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  • WHO? What data supports “the people” creating the legislation?

SECTION 1.

(a) “The Legislature finds and declares that all children and youth, regardless of gender, class, race, ethnicity, national origin, culture, religion, immigration status, sexual orientation, or ability, have inherent rights that entitle them to protection, special care, and assistance, including, but not limited to, the following:

(1) The right to parents, guardians, or caregivers who act in their best interest.”

  • The State aims to declare the best interest. However, they have no legal responsibility for the outcome of the child. The State can not be fully equipped to handle the best interest of all children in California when the State is struggling to provide the best for the many displaced, abused, exploited and neglected children in California. We have atrocious amounts of children in a system that is failing them desperately. By the state legally declaring what the best interest of every child is, they undoubtedly hold the parent’s both liable to legal consequence for noncompliance and liable for outcomes of the child. How can the people of California accept this law will serve children, if the parent’s are not viewed as capable of determining their own children’s best interest? Yet, held responsible for every part of the children’s live’s regardless. California parent’s, caretakers, child protecting agencies and legal guardians are emotionally, financially, medically, educationally, morally, and legally responsible for their children. We do not need to be mandated by law how to care for children. As long as we are doing our jobs lawfully and rightfully. We have law’s that provide consequences for our children. Criminal offenses upon children are prosecuted by law. If an adult of any kind or legal caretaker infringes upon the right’s of a child, we have legally bound Criminal consequences for these crimes in California currently.

(2) “The right to form healthy attachments with adults responsible for their care and well-being.”

  • How does the state plan to enforce and ensure this part of the legislation? This is a very big issue and ultimately lands upon the shoulders of the state’s inhabitants. Rather than legislature, public servants could start addressing mental health ignorance, services for parent’s/children, addressing the discussion with parents about their own upbringing to help families not perpetuate these abuses onto their own children unintentionally or otherwise. This is a very wonderful time to start treating all people with healthy relationships for the best outcomes for all of California as a whole state. Not only the children, although it is the most important group to assure have healthy bonding early in life. The parent’s of California are happy to have help with optional parenting classes and optional family therapy w/access for all income brackets.

(3) “The right to live in a safe and healthy environment.”

  • Look around. The law doesn’t address how the state aims to provide an investment into the children’s environment and the safety of the environment. The state wants to declare to parent’s by law what environment is safe and healthy. Also, are all of California parent’s completely incompetent about safety and healthy environments for children? Where is the data to support this notion from the State? California current law’s protect and act by law enforcement when a child is not in a safe and healthy environment? So therefore what is the rationale for this enacting by the state? Are more second ammendment right’s going to be infringed upon?

(4) “The right to social and emotional well-being.”

All human right’s include this Human right’s are children’s right’s, for which the parent’s, caretakers, and State’s are responsible for as it stands currently. Is the state going to be providing optional resources for families to emotionally develope per the states definition of appropriate social and emotional well being? Does the state declare that all humans who have human right’s to be emotionally and socially developed by law? If so, can the state allow for criminal justice upon the caretakers of the past generation’s?

(5) “The right to opportunities to attain optimal cognitive, physical, and social development.”

  • We have the highest level of opportunity for children to thrive in this State as is stands, and by criminalizing parent’s who provide the best they can based on what they know to be the best interest of the children you are theoretically hurting the family’s and organizations that are trying to do their best. Law’s protect and providing optional programs serve as a more appropriate and American way to create the best outcomes for children under the current laws.

(6) “The right to appropriate, quality education and life skills leading to self-sufficiency in adulthood”

  • Freedom by definition of the United States Constitution provides unalienable right’s for all mankind, and children are the best part of mankind. Every family, caretaker, and guardian of a child has the right to choose what they believe regarding religion, constitutional right’s, medical choices, living arrangements, private live’s, leisure time, educational preferences, moral values, social values, age appropriate time frames for learning, the philosophy and the environment best suited for the child to learn. The state declares this law to enforce the standard for the children of California. So, it’s as if the State has formed concrete parameters for their statement, however did not choose to include such verbage in the measure? All children and legally responsible caretakers have constitutional right’s that provide protection from the State infringing upon and declaring how to live, learn, and pursue happiness. We are all different, and when we create law’s based on what is or is not appropriate to the state, we are not free people’s. We are slaves to dictators and criminals for raising our children freely and legally. The law’s are in place to provide persecution to the children’s abusers. If the people allow the state to determine appropriate lifestyles for our children, we are still accountable and legally responsible for the children- regardless if the State’s law’s negatively affected the children.

(7) “The right to appropriate, quality health care.”

  • The state has been steadily slipping in laws that mandate health care, removal of informed consent, medical freedom, and personal freedom to choose medical procedures without punishment or criminal consequences. The same State who is criminalizing parent’s and legal caretakers of California’s children for our right to raise our family’s freely, commenced to enact law’s that denied children the right to public/private/charter education/daycare/preschool/ religious beliefs and personal beliefs and acting in the best interest of your children. As well as legally/financially/ medically responsible for the child if the mandated law enforcement negatively injures the child. They want to take away right’s and then give them back, but always at the expense of the parent’s and tax payers of the State.

(b) “It is the intent of the Legislature in enacting this act to expand and codify the Bill of Rights for Children and Youth of California created by Assembly Concurrent Resolution No. 80 (Res. Ch. 101, Stats. 2009), to establish a comprehensive framework that governs the rights of all children and youth in California, outlines the research-based essential needs of California’s children, and establishes standards relating to the health, safety, well-being, early childhood and educational opportunities, and familial supports necessary for all children to succeed.”

  • The need for support for all family’s and all children should not be a legally binding criminalizing act of the state. It should be a plan for improving and a call to action for the people’s to determine what is the best way to draw the plan for the children they’re responsible for.

SECTION 2.

“It is the intent of the Legislature, by January 1, 2022, to enact appropriate legislation to accomplish all of the following:
(a) Develop and put forth research-based policy solutions that will ensure the Bill of Rights for Children and Youth of California, in its totality, is applied evenly, equitably, and appropriately to all children and youth across the state.”

  • Science has been proven to fall short in legal assessment for appropriateness. The people of California are insulted by the state, government agencies, and statistical analyst are better suited to declare to we the people who chose to bring live’s into the world and invest in them daily are less credentialed to determine the best interest of our children. The evidence knows our children better than we do? If the state is so concerned with children’s right’s then wouldn’t they have provided the people with their evidence based research that supports the Bill prior to writing the Bill? Wouldn’t the people like to have a say in what is appropriate for assembly bill’s and Senate Bills being written prior to them being written? The measure states “we the people of California declare”- who are they speaking for? Our children? They don’t want to hear about the children who have died and been injured by vaccines, and they have denied children’s right’s to education, medical freedom, religious freedom, and due process of the law to protect children’s future injuries from their denial of Constitutional right’s in this country.

(b) “Determine the amount of revenue and resources necessary to ensure that the Bill of Rights for Children and Youth of California, in its totality, is applied evenly, equitably, and appropriately to all children and youth across the state.”

  • Again, not for a Senate’s vote on the law’s, but certainly vote on the plan to help families and support family’s. That’s their job. To uphold the constitution and speak as a voice for the people of California.

(c) “Identify and obtain the revenue and resources necessary to ensure that the Bill of Rights for Children and Youth of California, in its totality, is applied evenly, equitably, and appropriately to all children and youth across the state.”

  • Bureaucracy babble. California doesn’t have to make a law to do this work for the state’s children. Law’s are being written, and even enforced. Sex trafficking decriminalization. Mandatory vaccination for preschool age and all school children, etc.

“SB 18, as introduced, Pan. Bill of Rights for Children and Youth in California.
Existing law provides for the care and welfare of children and youth in various contexts, including, but not limited to, child welfare services, foster care, health care, nutrition, homeless assistance, and education.

“An act relating to children and youth.”

  • Youth are regarded as minors, with equal right’s and protection by law. However, not responsible for themselve’s in regards to caretaking, and legal consequence.

“This bill would declare the intent of the Legislature to expand and codify the Bill of Rights for Children and Youth of California to establish a comprehensive framework that governs the rights of all children and youth in California, outlines the research-based essential needs of California’s children, and establishes standards relating to the health, safety, well-being, early childhood and educational opportunities, and familial supports necessary for all children to succeed.”

  • Why? Due processing? Evidence that supports the need for legislation to be introduced for laws to be created? Proof of necessity? Why not address the system’s in place to best address the outcomes that the state wishes to see by law? Why not add to the current structure of the various established programs?

  • California currently has longstanding law’s that protect, provide, and ensure human right’s for the children of California. We currently have over 300 organizations that pertain to serving our children here. We have a current budget that shows over half of the funds going into education and health care for 2017.
