I would create a safe haven for babies, toddlers, and small children of abusive and/or drug addicted parents.
I’d set up a simple 40-acre property that included lodging, food, activities, and on-hand nurses, preschool teachers, and child psychologists to assist in the development and play of these young children.
I would make sure there was one loving volunteer “mom” or “dad” for each child who accompanied the child throughout the day and helped celebrate accomplishments, offer guidance, and nursed wounds, both emotional and physical.
I would offer drug/alcohol awareness and parenting classes and rehabilitation on site for parents suffering from addiction or any other disorder which prevented them from honestly being the parents they wanted to be. Supervised visits would be allowed to maintain bond between parent and child.
Every infant would be held and fed, each toddler held and comforted, and each young child comforted and reassured.
And that’s what I’d do with a million dollars, although I don’t think a million would cover it.
