    According to a report done by Kids Count, child poverty in the United States has increased 16% from the period of 2005-2010.    The report also stated that the percentage of children with parents who lack secure employment has risen 22%.   Yes, this report is quite dismal.   What are your thoughts on this?

      I am hopeful that things will improve. It is a shame that so many young people are growing up with limited resources which in turn leads to limited exposure to new things and opportunity for improvement. I think if we as a nation focus on improving the conditions of those in poverty, we will greatly improve the future for the entire country. C.

        Totally concur.   No child should grow up in socioeconomic poverty and in want.
