“Parents not resigning, just overwhelmed”, for Adrien Taquet


INTERVIEWAt the end of February, two 14-year-old teenagers, Lilibelle and Toumani, lost their lives during two different brawls in Essonne, after being stabbed. Invited from Europe 1 on Sunday, the Secretary of State in charge of children and families to the Minister of Solidarity and Health, Adrien Taquet, says he went to Essonne “at the beginning of last week to the meeting mayors who had to face these tragedies “. Regarding the role of adults in limiting this violence, “all tell us that in a large majority of cases, parents have not resigned, they are just overwhelmed,” he says.

“More support and relaying parents”

For the Secretary of State, there is therefore an urgent need to “further support and relay the parents”. “It is necessary that the adults reinvest the street, go in contact with the young people”, he insists. Taking the words of the mayor of Dourdan, one of the municipalities concerned (especially in the brawl which led to the death of Lilibelle, editor’s note), Paolo De Carvalho, Adrien Taquet judges that we “are facing orphans before 8 am, after 3 pm hours and during the holidays “. To avoid new tragedies, Adrien Taquet therefore considers it necessary to “relay the parents who cannot cope”.

To do this, the Minister Delegate in charge of Citizenship to the Minister of the Interior, Marlène Schiappa, announced on Sunday the creation of a parents’ committee against harassment, in particular around associations. But Adrien Taquet also mentions “specialized educators” to “bring more authority” to young people. Professionals on which the government relies. “As part of the strategy to fight against poverty, we have proposed to the department to finance, which is within their competence, the posts of educators”, underlines the Secretary of State. “And as part of the recovery plan, we are funding 300 positions for specialized educators. So there is an investment from the State.”
