IN THE MATTER OF CHILDREN.

April 2, 2018.

Supreme Judicial Court, Superintendence of inferior courts.

Frank LaMonde appeals from a judgment of a single justice of this court denying his petition pursuant to G. L. c. 211, § 3.  We affirm.

As best we can tell from the record before us, LaMonde’s two minor children are in the temporary custody of the Department of Children and Families and have been since February, 2016.  Since that time, LaMonde has filed several emergency motions for custody.  In the most recent motion, filed in April, 2017, LaMonde not only seeks custody but also alleges that the children’s mother, from whom LaMonde is divorced, is a danger to the children and has “kidnapped” them two or three times.[1],[2]  The motion was denied. read more

Every Day is Earth Day: Plant the Seeds, Inspire Children

Earth Day was on April 22, and was celebrated across the entire world. What can we do to show our love of the earth on that day, and every day?    

Love begins in the home and so does the love for our earth. If you teach your children to respect the earth on every level, they will continue to realize the global impact of environmentalism when they become adults. This is important for the sustainability of life as we know it.  

Perhaps we can set off that spark in a child, making them want to learn more about the process and do more to help. If we’ve done our part, they might strive to become an environmentalist—professionally or at heart. Inspire children, plant the seeds early on, and they will flourish. 

We all strive to do “acts of kindness” for our neighbors, to cement better relations locally or worldwide—but perhaps we also need to do “acts of environmental kindness” too, to save our planet.   read more
