    Child Watch® Column: "New Year Resolutions"
    As New Year’s Eve countdowns wound down, many people turned to the familiar ritual of taking stock of where they are now to make resolutions for what they can do better in the new year. We all measure our accomplishments and shortcomings in different ways. Some people count numbers on a scale or in a savings account. But what if we decided to take stock as a nation by measuring how we treat our children?

    Child Watch® Column: "It Is Time to Act to Protect Children Against Gun Violence"
    Over the past few days we’ve all learned a bit more about twenty beautiful six- and seven-year-olds who each seem as if they could have been any of our children or grandchildren. Jessica asked Santa for new cowgirl boots for Christmas. Daniel’s family said he “earned” all the ripped knees on his jeans. James liked to remind people that he was six and three-quarters. Grace loved playing dress-up and with her dog Puddin’.

    Child Watch® Column: "Dear God! When Will It Stop?"
    The horrendous news from Newtown, Connecticut has pierced our hearts. A black-clad man in his 20s armed with two semi-automatic handguns entered the Sandy Hook Elementary School and made an elementary school for kindergartners through fourth graders the scene of the worst mass shooting in a public school in American history. Twenty children were shot and killed. Seven adults were shot and killed. We don’t yet know how many were wounded. We do know dozens of parents are experiencing the worst nightmare any parent could imagine. We do know more than 500 young children in the school are traumatized.

    Child Watch® Column: "Determined to Make a Difference"
    This year New York is facing the worst homeless crisis since the Great Depression. The city homeless population included a record-breaking 42,888 children. The many ways poverty scars a child today and long into the future are well-documented. Children who have to navigate the harsh reality of homelessness on top of poverty often fall through our already porous safety nets and disproportionately drop out of school and then too often drop into the prison pipeline.

    Protect Medicaid for Children
    Medicaid is a lean, efficient, and popular program that enables children to become healthy, productive, taxpaying members of society. Without Medicaid’s strong protections, coverage guarantee and individualized health and mental health coverage, many children would go uninsured, increasing short and long term costs for states and local communities. As our nation’s leaders make critical decisions about America’s economic future, Medicaid -- which provides comprehensive health and mental health coverage for millions of children -- must remain exempt from cuts or structural changes that would undermine its critical protections.
