Parents don't want to be
judged in the office. They want
to be heard and understood.
Give them that space! #AAP16

border to see how unaccompanied minors
were treated in Office of Refugee Resettlement facilities and visited with children and
families at a church as they awaited release
to their U.S. sponsors.
"I know they will add to the richness and
fabric of our country," he said, lauding the
Academy's efforts and resources (http://bit.
ly/2c5vyAL). An upcoming policy from
the AAP Immigrant Health Special Interest
Group will focus on the treatment of unaccompanied minors and families.
The Academy also contributed to a
report that offers recommendations to the
Department of Homeland Security, including discontinuation of family detention
centers, which it says are not appropriate or
necessary for families and are not in the best
interest of children.
Another major priority for the Academy
has been the needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender children, youths and
parents. With the Academy and the North
Carolina Chapter leading the way, a restrictive bill was defeated clearing the way for
transgender youths to use the bathroom of
the gender with which they identify.
"The AAP has a long history of support for
these groups; in fact, we often had to wait for
the public to catch up with us," he noted.
Finally, heading into the national election, Dr. Dreyer urged members to access
the AAP Blueprint for Children: How the
Next President Can Build a Foundation for
a Healthy Future (http://bit.ly/2dyjxT2).
The document provides a plan for the new
administration and Congress to improve the
lives of children and families.
"Remember, it is all about all the children! We are their pediatricians, and we care
about and for all children."
