New Philippine Child Protection Law

2 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

The bill provides that any parent, ascendant, teacher, or guardian, who uses corporal punishment, whether verbal, physical, mental or psychological, can be punished under the law.

House Bill 682 also protects students from abusive punishments from teachers and other academic authorities, regardless of when or where corporal punishment was executed.

If approved, the bill can send the guilty to jail.


In Philippines, such laws are only paper-work, nobody can ever execute them among the ordinary people.

And this is the other side, millions of children without sufficient food.

There are now about 2 million streetchildren in the Philippines.


Malnutrition problem 'serious'

WHILE many of them have ideal weights, a significant percentage of elementary schoolchildren are still underweight.

Department of Education (DepEd) 7 data collected last year showed that 22.59 percent of Central Visayas’ elementary schoolchildren were malnourished.


Grace Espos, a DepEd 7 nutritionist, attributed the high percentage of underweight schoolchildren mostly to their families economic status.

This is the other side of the law in UK/EU.

I will visit Philippines/Cebu again this coming week.

As I said in the other thread, I have no problems with my Filipina fostergirl there.

She is always grateful, that she has enough to eat, can go to school, and has medical insurance and can live in a house.

If you have problems with children in UK/EU send them for a few weeks to Philippines - mosquitos and malaria/dengue-fever and street-children and food-shortage - or send them during winter to a village in China.

There will be no UK/EU discipline discussion anymore, as considered to be pointless or baseless.

      Well I plan on a trip to Saigon some time in feb 2016. I plan on retiring soon so I have a pension and social security. Combined it should be  $1800.monthy. In Vietnam it should work out. We talked about children, although I love children, I've raised 4. She has no children and no parents. Her Parents have passed and left them a house in the country. She has a brother and sister both older. She watches the brothers 3 children as the brother and his wife reside in the same home. The older sister married, resides in Saigon. But we've agreed no children... So it will only be her and I. It's funny  we're still jockeying for position on where we should live. I wouldn't mind a change of pace living somewhere else.  Vietnam has its ups and downs but there's many good things, life is minimal,  I'm well aware of that,  but I've lived many places and in most need little to comfort me. Yet I realize Dai has a friend down the road from me. ( they introduced us).     saddle up!   Lol
