Subject:

Children Roleplay while in professional care
 

I want to...:

New Rule

 

Elaboration:

So, recently I have noticed that there are many people RPing as children now, which is completely fine. The part that isn't fine is how children are dealt with. It seems the community here fails to realize that the American Childcare system is very complex.

As America continues to progress, rules for childcare has also progressed. This is typically how some situations are handled:

-Child Abandonment/Abuse/Homelessness-
Children are taken from their home by an investigative department in their local state.
They are placed into a Foster Home pending investigation.
Investigation is held, pending investigation child would be released to original guardians or taken.
If take, the child would be placed for adoption. Parents seeking adoption would come and kind of "interview" the child. If everything went well, the child would go to a new family.

Since we have limitations and cannot have a child held in Foster care like we would IRL, other arrangements have been made. We've been allowing kids to stay at ASH/SEMC so that they could have the chance of becoming adopted. Of course, realistically they wouldn't be allowed to leave but keeping someone locked up when they have not done anything is frowned upon, so we've allowed these kids into the faction so that they can come and go freely.

Of course, this would be fine but we still have a major problem. People apparently think running away as a child is completely normal behavior. With this being said, I'd like to point out that realistically children in a temp home would be watched 24/7 due to fear of previous parents attempting kidnapping/worse.

The last thing, illegal RP while under ASH/SEMC care. I've noticed kids leaving and committing crimes. This is highly unrealistic. Realistically if you were to leave, you'd be going to school. You would have been escorted there by someone. And if you had to go someplace else, someone would escort you.

My main suggestion to solve all of the above problems is:
Admin approval.

Kids shouldn't be allowed to RP running away unless it's approved by an admin.
Kids under care of ASH/SEMC should be allowed to commit illegal crimes unless it's approved by an admin.

I feel that this does not limit roleplay because realistically if a child were to runaway or become missing, a building would lock down and a search would be completed. If the kid wasn't found, a state-wide Amber Alert would be issued, Police would be scattered, and shit would get real deep.
As for the illegal roleplay, it could still be done but has to be allowed. For obvious reasons, children stealing cars, dealing guns and drugs, and pissing cops off while living at a temp home is completely unrealistic IRL. In MTA standards, it's apparently fine. So if for some reason a kid has to do the illegal activities, admins should know what it is and have to approve it before it is roleplayed. This helps preserve some realism.

Also like to add that it's becoming an EVERYDAY thing with the children running away. There is really nothing we can do. We can't force them to stay in a room. We can't send out amber alerts when a child goes missing because it'd get annoying due to how many actually run away.


TL:DR
Children need admin approval to runaway and do illegal activities while under ASH/SEMC care.

I see you point, and I somewhat agree.

 

However, if you seriously think that illegal activities for a kid living in a temp home is unrealistic then you've completely misunderstood everything about it.

 

Kids living such places usually come from troubled families. This means they will tend to do smaller robberies, and use drugs.

That's why I didn't say to rule it out all together. I suggested it be approved. 

 

Unless someone has a legit backstory and is legit roleplaying illegally and has the backstory to go with it... I don't care. But when someone makes a kid character just to go around breaking laws for the fun of the drama... It's a big pain in the ass.

 

And usually the ones who legit RP illegal characters try to cover it up and stay hidden. The ones who doesn't care and go around breaking laws are the ones that the rule is aimed at.
