Children sure sound worse off here than in other first-world countries in Europe, etc. The article doesn't really address our child welfare system, which has to be one of the worst in the world and a major contributor to the problem.

But then, there are those countries where there is no child welfare system at all. I've read that in urban areas of Brazil and Argentina, a large proportion of the homeless are children under age 12.

Yeah, it's all relative, of course. Still, we could be doing a heck of a lot better by our kids in this nation.
