What percentage of the world's parents have buried their own children?
This would be impossible to know. That would mean collect all the statistics of every stillbirth, late miscarriage, teens and adults who died in accidents and suicide while their parents were alive, war victims etc. I think we all know someone who has though. I had a stillborn son myself.

Answer . \nNo. Although when making a decision of partitioning property or deciding who should retain such, the judge also considers which parent is to retain primary custody of the child(ren).
There are about 14 million Jews in the world as of 2010; 6.2million in Asia (including Israel), 5.5 million in America, twomillion in Europe and 100,000 in Africa. Out of the world'spopulation of seven billion, the Jews are about 0.2%. And yet Jews have earned 22% of all individual recipients of NobelPrizes worldwide between 1901 and 2009. Albert Einstein, the most influential scientist of all time andTIME magazine's "Person of the Century," was a Jew. Sigmund Freud-- id, ego, superego -- the father of psychoanalysis, was a Jew. Sowere Paul Samuelson and Milton Friedman. Here are a few other Jews whose intellectual output has enrichedthe whole of humanity: Benjamin Rubin gave humanity the vaccinatingneedle. Jonas Salk developed the first polio vaccine. Alert Sabindeveloped the improved live polio vaccine. Gertrude Elion gave us aleukaemia-fighting drug. Baruch Blumberg developed the vaccinationfor Hepatitis B. Paul Ehrlich discovered a treatment for syphilis(a sexually transmitted disease). Elie Metchnikoff won a NobelPrize in infectious diseases. Bernard Katz won a Nobel Prize in neuromuscular transmission.Andrew Schally won a Nobel in endocrinology (disorders of theendocrine system; diabetes, hyperthyroidism). Aaron Beck foundedCognitive Therapy (psychotherapy to treat mental disorders,depression and phobias). Gregory Pincus developed the first oralcontraceptive pill. George Wald won a Nobel for furthering ourunderstanding of the human eye. Stanley Cohen won a Nobel inembryology (study of embryos and their development). Willem Kolffcame up with the kidney dialysis machine. Stanley Mezor invented the first micro-processing chip. Leo Szilarddeveloped the first nuclear chain reactor. Peter Schultz, theoptical fibre cable; Charles Adler, traffic lights; Benno Strauss,stainless steel; Isador Kisee, sound movies; Emile Berliner,telephone microphone; and Charles Ginsburg, videotape recorder. Famous leaders in the business world who belong to Jewish faithinclude Ralph Lauren (Polo), Levis Strauss (Levi's Jeans), HowardSchultz (Starbucks), Sergey Brin (Google), Michael Dell (DellComputers), Larry Ellison (Oracle), Donna Karan (DKNY), Irv Robbins(Baskins & Robbins) and Bill Rosenberg (Dunkin Donuts). RichardLevin, President of Yale University, is a Jew. So are HenryKissinger (American secretary of state), Alan Greenspan (the Fedchairman under Reagan, Bush, Clinton and Bush II), JosephLieberman, Maxim Litvinov (USSR Foreign Minister), David Marshal(Singapore's first chief minister), Issac Isaacs (governor-generalof Australia), Benjamin Disraeli (British statesman and author),Yevgeny Primakov (Russian PM), John Deutsch (CIA director), HerbGray (Canadian deputy PM), Pierre Mendes (French PM), MichaelHoward (British home secretary), Bruno Kreisky (chancellor ofAustria) and Robert Rubin (American secretary of treasury). In the media, famous Jews include Wolf Blitzer (CNN), BarbaraWalters (ABC News), Eugene Meyer (Washington Post), Henry Grunwald(editor-in-chief Time), Katherine Graham (publisher of TheWashington Post), Joseph Lelyyeld (Executive editor, The New YorkTimes), and Max Frankel (New York Times). At the Olympics, Mark Spitz set a record by wining seven goldmedals. Lenny Krayzelburg is a three-time Olympic gold medalist.Spitz, Krayzelburg and Boris Becker are all Jewish. Did you know that Harrison Ford, George Burns, Tony Curtis, CharlesBronson, Billy Crystal, Woody Allen, Paul Newman, Peter Sellers,Dustin Hoffman, Michael Douglas, Ben Kingsley, Kirk Douglas, GoldieHawn, Cary Grant, William Shatner, Jerry Lewis and Peter Falk areall Jewish? As a matter of fact, Hollywood itself was founded by aJew. Among directors and producers, Steven Spielberg, Mel Brooks,Oliver Stone, Aaron Spelling (Beverly Hills 90210), Neil Simon (TheOdd Couple), Andrew Vaina (Rambo 1/2/3), Michael Man (Starsky andHutch), Milos Forman (One flew over the Cuckoo's Nest), DouglasFairbanks (The thief of Baghdad) and Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters)are all Jewish. William James Sidis, with an IQ of 250-300, is the brightest humanwho ever existed. Guess what faith he belonged to? So, why are Jews so successful? Answer: Education, education,education. Knowledge is power. So maybe you should pick up a bookand learn something new?
Often they do. A parent can be charged with kidnapping if they take the child without the other parent's knowledge or consent or from a court appointed guardian.
To answer this question there really isn't a "Black Race" per say. Black is not literally the color of the people commonly referred to as "Black". As a matter of fact "Black" people actually come in different shades of brown."Black" people range from light caramel to nearly black in color. Much of the population of the America's especially the Caribbean nations of Cuba, Haiti's, Dominican republic, Jamaica & others have a large "African" population as well as "African" admixture others like Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela & Brazil also have extensive "African" admixtures, along with the Middle East & Northern Africa. In many Latin nations dark skinned peoples have down played their "African" genes by using such terms as "Moreno" but rarely do they claim "Black" or "Negro"even with apparent African features.This has to do with the fact when colonial Spain & France ruled over the area light skinned "Blacks"or"Mulattoes" were seen as superior to the "Black" African slave populations & held privileges that weren't available to "Black" Africans slaves many of the "Mulattoes" along with the "White" populous later formed the elites of the newly created Nations of the America's. In Middle Eastern countries along the Red Sea their has been mixing with Africans for centuries especially after the birth of Islam. A large number of Arabs in Saudi Arabia for example have extensive African admixture. The Aksumite empire of what is now Northern Ethiopia ruled large swathes of present day Yemen & portions of Saudi Arabia. Ancient Egyptians were infact "Black" African similar to the Semitic & Cushitic Peoples of present day Ethiopia, Somalia & Horn of Africa in general. The modern Egypt we know today was "Arabized" after the birth of Islam. Also ancient Rome had a substantial "Black" population. The continent of Africa being the traditional home land of "Black" people is very diverse there are dozens of visible phyno types such as the Yoruba peoples of present day Nigeria which many "Black" Americans share common DNA with. Also the Amhara & Somali's despite their angular faces & sharp features are actually native to Africa these are just a few of the visible phyno types of the African Continent. The number of "Black" People world wide can range from 1.5 Billion to 2 Billion depending on who you define as "BlacK" as the term is very subjective most people in the world identify them self's by Ethnicity, Culture, Nationality or even Religious. Only in a few western countries like the U.K and the United States are such terms as "White & Black" used to identify people.
Around 33% percent of the world population is Christian. A Pew Forum survey from 2007 shows that 23.9% of the US population identifies themselves as Catholic (compared to the 78.4% who identify as Christian) Worldwide, however, Catholicism accounts for greater than 50% of all Christians and is the 2nd largest single religious group.
If the population of Asia is 4,050,404,000 and there are just under6.8 billion people on the planet you will find this percentage tobe approximately 59.56% . There are actually only about 3,900,000,000 people in Asia and theworld population is about 6,970,000,000 so that comes to around 56% .
Most eastimates indiccate about 6% of the world population (420 to500 million of 7 billion total population) is Buddhist. The numberis difficult to determine as some countries with large populations(e.g. China) do not provide supportable data.

There are approximately seven billion people that live on planetEarth. Males out number females by a slight percentage with 50.24%of the world's population being male.
The current estimated human population for the planet earth in 2010 is 6,865,300,000 by the United States Census Bureau. The United Nations estimates that world population will be over the 7,000,000,000 mark in 2011. Recent U.N. organized surveys performed in multiple countries have found the average percentage of people who suffer from some sort of cancer is 31% . The American Cancer Society has found similar numbers in its studies of North and South America. Using these two sources of information. One can estimate that 2,128,243,000 individuals in the year 2010, will have some sort of cancer.
About 15 percent of the world's population is Roman Catholic. Thecountry with the most Catholics is Brazil, followed by Mexico, andthen the United States.
It is estimated that only roughly 10 percent of the world'spopulation owns an automobile. As of 2014, the population of theworld is approximately 7 billion.
Computer ownership is now at about 4-5% of the worlds population; however, with many social projects putting computers in villages in developing countries between 12-14% of the worlds population have access to a computer. Approx 3-5 % of the world's population have internet access. To put this into context only about 25% of the world's population sleep in their own bed at night and only about 30% of the worlds population are rich enough to have a bank account!
The earth's total percentage of water that is ice is only about 1.7%. However, earth's total percentage of freshwater is about 68.7%.
Parents who have difficulty with their adult children are likely dealing with A LOT of unresolved issues from their own childhood and life. If you are an adult, you are free to make your own decision REGARDLESS of what your parents think. If you get caught up in their opinionated drama, then it is YOU who need to stop acting like a child. If you're trying to avoid a fight, when they do express an opinion about your life calmly say, "Thanks for sharing, I'll think about it." THEN go do what you want to do. \n. \nBOTTOM LINE: If you want to be treated like an adult, act like one.

I cannot answer the question for you but I do know that it is true. I don't understand how they don't "forgive" when to me, God IS ALL ABOUT forgiveness. HE FORGIVES SINS! I'm involved with a JW (secretly) and we face being found out all the time. He is terrified of what will happen to him and terrified that he will lose his entire family just for being with me. He takes that chance because he loves me but sometimes I wonder what he will do if he IS caught. I cannot understand how you can disown the ones you love most, I think it is the WORST thing about this religion. EVERYONE makes mistakes, some bigger than others BUT GOD FORGIVES and so should the family of someone who does something that is "forbidden".. More Accurate Answer: . We do not disown family members. Occasionally, a member of our family who has made a vow of dedication to Jehovah God to do his will turns their back on that vow, and we no longer have a spiritual relationship with that person.. That, however, does not break the family ties, nor the love and relationship that goes along with it. We still have a family responsibility toward them, and we still love them, but by their actions they have cut themselves off from their relationship with their and our heavenly father, so that action severs any spiritual ties between us.. That being said, it is true God does forgive sins if one repents and turns around from their rebellious course. One cannot continue to live a lie, or live a life in opposition to their dedication.. Our having no spiritual relationship with them often acts as a motivation for them to examine themselves to see what they have done wrong and correct it, and then that relationship is restored.. The first answer indicates a person is "having a relationship" with one of Jehovah's Witnesses, and he is "terrified" that he will be caught because of what might happen. This attitude indicates that more is involved than just dating. While we do not encourage dating/marriage to those who are not fellow worshippers of God, this is not a disfellowshippable offense. However, if either person is not Scripturally free to marry, or if there is a sexual relationship going on, then he ought to be concerned, not because of congregation action, but because he is clearly violating Scriptural admonition.. 1 Corinthians chapter 5 discusses a case where a person is to be removed from the congregation for sexual immorality, and in that chapter other possible offense are also named. Chapter 5 is only 13 verses long - doesn't take too long to read.). Apparently this action had the desired affect, because in 2 Corinthians 2:5-8, the congregation is told to accept the repentant sinner back.. Additionally . As the above answerer indicated, there are situations where the scriptures command that someone be remooved from the congregation. This is not a suggestion, but a command. It is this simple: Any organization that does not follow the Bible's commands, are not following the Bible, period. Since JW's are a Bible-based organization, we are going to follow the Bible. When the Bible says 'remove such a person from you,' we are going to follow that direction. Keep in mind that we are all sinners in need of a saviour, so a person is not removed from the congregation for simply sinning. he is removed for his atitude toward the sin. If he has stopped, and is genuinely sorry for it, he is not removed. In either case, whether removed from the congregation or not, he is counseled and given scriptural instruction to help him regain spiritual strength. At one time, I fell into severe wrong doing, and I was disfellowshipped from the congregation. That was about 12 years ago. I was helped by the elders in the congregation to regain spiritual strength, to the point that today, I am stronger spiritually now, than I was previous to my disfellowshipping, and I am being used in the congregation in a position of responsibility. I owe it all to the fact that I was disciplined by God according to the arrangement in the scriptures. When you follow God's reasoning, instead of man's reasoning, you will always come out better, even if for a time it seems harsh.. Like the previous answerer, I would also suspect that the "boyfriend" in question is terrified because there is some serious wrong doing involved such as sexual relations outside of marriage, which is strictly condemned in the Bible. It sounds like this person needs help from the congregation. That help may not end up being disfellowshipping, but if it comes to it, that may be the best thing, it sure helped me. In fact, as I see it, it probably saved my life.. Additional answer: I will give an example as to why we do not disown our family. My mother was never really one of Jehovah's Witnesses, she left our family arrangement but she still keeps in contact with us. I love her because she's my mother I just don't approve of the things she does. Another example would be there's an elder in our congregation and they had a son that was really strong in the truth until he just started to rebel almost and so he left the christian congregation. Just because you are disfellowshipped or you choose to leave doesn't mean that you are disowned they are still your family and you love them but you don't agree with what they are doing so you choose to put your own spirituality ahead of their choices.
There are approximately 600 million cars, passenger vans, SUVs and light trucks in the world today. Of those about 240 million are found in the United States. It is a little difficult to then do simple math and say there are 6.76 billion people in the world (according to the US Census Bureau) so 600 million / 6.76 billion = about 9% of the world owns a car. The reason is not all 600 million cars, passenger vans, SUVs and light trucks belong to private citizens. In that number you have taxis, police cars, commercially used vehicles like vans and pickup trucks for delivery services, SUVs and cars are used by fire departments, medical services, rental car fleets at airports around the world, even the world militaries use light passenger vehicles. One of the most effective weapons in warfare in Africa is Toyota pickup trucks with a machine gun bolted down in the bed. Likewise you have people who collect cars, and you have households in western nations where it is common to own more than one car. So the percentage of auto ownership globally is actually rather small, with a maximum of about 9%, but likely lower. A really interesting trend is in developing nations, especially Brazil, India and China. In 2008 China became the largest auto consuming country in the world, with its citizens buying more cars than people in the United States or Japan. Even more interesting, the number one importer in China is General Motors, with a similar marketshare in China as an importer that Toyota has in the United States. In countries like China, Brazil, and India, their population is pushing hard for a more western lifestyle, and they see the car as part of that lifestyle. China and India in particular are spending billions on highway infrastructure. Brazil is interesting as they have largely an ethanol based economy, with cars running largely on alcohol produced from sugarcane. That hasn't come without a price ecologically, namely the slashing and burning of rainforest to create sugarcane fields, and the dangers to the low paid workers who work those fields (this was highlighted well in National Geographic). However Brazil has proven you can build an extensive automtive infrastructure away from most fossil fuels. Given the shift in global economics we see today, it is highly unlikely, simply through sheer force of population and growing GDP, that the United States will ever return to the number one car economy in the world. The number of 240 million registered vehicles on the road here is actually down about 10 million vehicles in the last 12 months, as people have sold or taken their cars off the road, either due to environmental or economic reasons. It is actually very likely that the United States will drift to third or fifth place in auto consumption behind China and eventually India, and possibly Brazil, or Russia after the European economic situation stabilizes. This will have longer term a dramatic impact on choice of vehicles for people in the United States, how cars are sold, and what features they will have. Here in the United States you have roughly 160 million Americans who live in the 100 largest metro areas in the country. That means 140 million Americans still live in spread out suburban or rural areas, where public transit is impractical at best, and impossible in many cases (you're not going to be able to provide effective public transit to the citizens of Jefferson, South Dakota or Onalaska, Texas as examples). The elimination of a vehicle that provides personal transit in the United States, or other rural areas in the world is simply impossible until a better of safely and quickly moving people and their goods over distance door-to-door is created. In those metro areas a lot more could be done, and cities like Boston, New York and Philadelphia are great examples. However these cities benefit from infrastructure implemented 100 to 150 years ago, a strong rail network that foundationally was laid down during the Civil War, and public works projects like subways built at the beginning of the 20th century. The bottom line is the percentage of ownership will probably go up globally as India and China fight for world resources and their populations demand a middle class lifestyle, and many in western nations in suburban and rural settings still have a need for personal transit.

I would say about 3% of the worlds snakes but that's a rough guess. No-one knows for sure, but that is quite a big percentage considering there are 3000 species of snake.
I am not finding any percentage.. a lot of studies and even a book. That states that about 40% of abused children become abusive to their spouses and/or children, or both. From experiences.. I was an abused child. And I did not get abusive with my child and never have. Sure there was the three swats on the but with an open hand, but that is as far as it went. The time outs and the discipline, he is not the perfect child in other people's homes without that discipline, today. So how did I learn to not be abusive? Easily.. I took courses in high school. I took child development and how to treat a child, a baby and an infant. I watched many shows and did many things to interact with children from babysitting, to working with special needs kids, and you name it I did it. You cannot say that because you were abused that you are going to abuse your child, not always. YOU have to take the steps to change yourself and your ways and what you were taught and learn. There are too many sites on the internet to learn and too many classes offered in schools and colleges to not go to them and learn more. There are even classes through many states on how to learn how to deal with an infant and/or a child and the growth and how to discipline. Read on with the sites I gave to you hopefully that is what you are looking for. But I could not find any percentages on this subject. http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/journal/93513652/abstract?CRETRY=1&SRETRY=0 http://books.google.com/books?id=f70GEKYT74sC&pg=PA51&lpg=PA51&dq=percentage+of+abused+children+become+non+abusive+parents&source=bl&ots=Etyqi3LpKH&sig=kkVRJWUg50nW713I4Dd9RkQwvjk&hl=en&ei=A5V_SrCYDce3twfr64HtAQ&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1#v=onepage&q=&f=false

As of January 2010, there are 13.8 million baptized members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) worldwide. The world population is approximately 6.7 billion. This means that 0.21% of the world's population is Mormon. This is about same as the percentage of the world's population that is Jewish (0.22%). In contrast, 17% of the world's population is Catholic, 21% of the world's population is Muslim, 14% of the world's population is Hindu, and 6% of the world's population is Protestant Christian.
There's no program in place to track the various reasons for a CHANGE in the primary residence of the child.
Thus the term, "children". It's the role of parents to set the direction of their children. After becoming an adult, they have the choice to go their own way, though it may include leaving their family behind, but that's the choices in life. The same happens here.
As it is hard to exactly measure religious affiliation, and as many organizations have incentives to exaggerate their membership, it is hard to quantify well. Christianity is still generally thought to be the most popular religion in the world today. Best estimates is that around 2 billion people consider themselves Christian, though obviously not all belong to a specific religion or church. Thus, out of a total world population of 7 billion, this means that about 71% of the world is non-Christian.

It is not possible to answer the question the way it is written. Please rephrase and resumbit.
Depends on applicable law in the state that you are in and the decision the parents and their lawyers make. An amicable settlement would be 50% of the time with each parent and the appropriate hours would be based upon the hours each parent is at work. ie, if a parent works mon - fri 9 -5 they would either get evenings and weekends when appropriate or if they work shift work and the other parent works 9-5 then it would be appropriate for the children to be with the parent when not at work.
The news plus some people like to rape kids so mabey their parents are one of those people and like to rape them
It is important to let your kids know that you love them and set a nice quality example for them in life. If you get mad or have a temper, it is important to control it and not act out in violent or abusive ways towards your kids or your spouse. Even if you are mad, it is important not to verbally or emotionally abuse either. Kids need rules, structure, and help to do well in life, but parents need to let their kids do some things on their own as they get older, within safe limits, so they can become independent adults. I'm not going to bash my own parents though, just give advice.
What percentage of children that are removed from parents are given to grandparents for permanent custody?
Not enough unfortunately. Usually, if the child is removed from both parents' care before legal guardianship is established, the child is remanded to the custody of the state. At that point, it becomes more difficult (and expensive) for grandparents to gain custody. There are heartbreaking stories all over the place of grandparents trying in vain to get custody of their grandchildren.
I think parents are more patience with their own children because parents want to know/feel what their child is going to do in next few minutes.not about other people's child Other people's kids. You know your own child so you know where the limit is but you show more patience with someone elses because you don't know them and their limits and don't want them to feel bad.
If your definition of Oceania includes Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea as well as the Pacific Islands, Oceania's land covers 8,536,716 square kilometres. Earth's land covers 148,940,000 square kilometres. Therefore, (8,536,716/148,940,000)x100 = 5.73%. I hope this has helped.

Many young parents nowadays do not have the luxury to stay home andteach--they have to depend on daycares. By the time the child comeshome, it's time for dinner and bed; consequently there is littletime for 'teaching,' as the limited time must be dedicated towardfamily enrichment. Deb's answer was great and parents shouldquestion the mission statement and philosophies of the day carestaff/management to ensure their beliefs correspond with theparents as closely as possible. Otherwise, the day care may bedoing nothing more than "sitting" kids, as if they were pets to beprovided food, shelter, and naps until a parent arrives to pickthem up.
