INQUIRING PHOTOGRAPHER

By JULES IRA RUBENSTEIN

Two children recently died whose families were under the supervision of the city Administration for Children’s Services. We asked readers what should be done to prevent future tragedies from occurring.

“The teachers need to notice the kids’ behavior and see if they have any marks [of abuse]. It starts early, like kids coming in [to school] late. [There should be] counseling for the kids, or even the parents.”

Christian Gabriel

“[Provide] birth control pills so that they don’t have unwanted babies. They should have mandatory parenting courses.”

Sybil Johnson

“The agency should be doing more investigations [and talk to] the schools and even the doctors.”

Olga Agront

““The city should be more stringent with their workers. They should pay more attention to cases like what’s been happening here in the Bronx.”

Fred Madera

“It seems that a lot of parents when they witness these situations, they don’t want to get involved. Parents ... shouldn’t be afraid to come forward. Not every parent is perfect. We don’t have a manual of how to raise a child.”

Evan Gonzalez
