Readers Tell Congress What It Should Do In the Next 100 Days

Young welfare mothers, and fathers, are still children, themselves usually neglected and ill-treated. I would like Congress in its next 100 days to provide group homes for welfare mothers and their infants under conditions where their self-worth and voice are encouraged by caring adults, and where human values and self-supportive methods are taught. Similarly, young males should be taught to see females as potential life partners and not as sex objects.
