    I thought, even in the beginning, that some of them might want to change their names, but not so much because of the media attention. I think it might be helpful for some of them to just symbolically disconnect from, remove the link to, their parents. Clean slate.

    I'm not disallowing it.

    I'm just saying why I'm not outraged at helpers making relatively small slip ups during a stressful situation.

    Since they already have separate defense teams I expect one of them will eventually turn on the other and agree to testify against them in order to try to get a better deal for themselves.

    I hope the DA holds strong and doesnt allow any plea deals like that because I think the DA will have plenty of evidence from the children without having to rely on any sort of deal like that.

    But it wont surprise me if that happens.

    It's already been stated in the media that all of the children are biologically theirs. I think we can put this idea to rest.

    I think that would definitely be helpful for them, but at the same time, with the entire planet knowing their last name and at least some of their first names, can you imagine going on a job interview? Trying to get a date? I just feel like they'd forever be THE TURPIN KIDS and it would be so hard to live in the world with everyone knowing what happened to you. I'd like to think people they meet will take them as they are, but it doesn't always work that way, unfortunately.

    No, it was stated authorities are going to do dna tests on all the family members.

    This explains what they can say as far as "condition" under HIPPA
    https://www.haponline.org/Newsroom/Media/HIPAA-Guidelines
    CONDITION DEFINITIONS

    For the one-word condition, hospitals generally use the terms “undetermined,” “good,” “fair,” “serious,” or “critical.” Definitions of patient conditions are as follows:
    • Undetermined—Patient is awaiting physician and/or assessment
    • Good—Vital signs are stable and within normal limits. Patient is conscious and comfortable. Indicators are excellent.
    • Fair—Vital signs are stable and within normal limits. Patient is conscious, but may be uncomfortable. Indicators are favorable.
    • Serious—Vital signs may be unstable and not within normal limits. Patient is acutely ill. Indicators are questionable.
    • Critical—Vital signs are unstable and not within normal limits. Patient may be unconscious. Indicators are unfavorable.

    Even so, i still think it's a bold and easily misunderstood statement to make. It has clearly come from somewhere, some sort of presumably, privileged information. I fail to see why you don't think it could be intrusive.

    I have to agree. I get that everyone has the right to share their experiences and opinions on these poor people, but out of respect to them, I don't think the world needs to know every nuance of their troubles.

    You are correct, it was stated in one of the press conferences.

    I thought one of the articles posted today stated that all 13 children were their biological children? Perhaps the article was posting an assumption.

    I doubt DNA testing is complete and I also seriously doubt LE will share the DNA results with the media.

    I think it is totally intrusive. Imagine how these kids are going to feel seeing these headlines....add to that the heartless bullies on social media.

    Even if true...how does it reach the level of a story in People?

    You know the public is legitimately concerned for these children. I know people are often morbidly curious. Hopefully a lot can be kept private. best case scenario is a plea deal and nothing further comes out, frankly. But people in the community have truly shown their horror and empathy for these kids and i truly feel that's what the officials are responding to.

    Also I think the kids have been unaware of the media interest. They have been very secluded, apparently, for most of their lives. I don't believe they have access to the internet yet. And someone is with them 24 hours a day so they likely are making sure they don't see the news.

    Hopefully they will receive new names and no one will be aware as to who they are.

    Finally, the shame is not theirs. That belongs to the monsters who did this to them.

    But your point about bullying is well taken.

    Fair enough. You're probably right. In my opinion, as a professional, he should know better.

    Regarding the DNA, when you have people who are this despicable, and who were able to hide so much, you want to double check that these kids do, in fact, belong to them.

    Let's say there's a record of her giving birth to the two year old. Still better check that THIS is the same kid she gave birth to, and not one she bought or snagged off the street because she accidentally killed hers.

    I think they are smart to double check.

    I won't even get into speculating about other reasons for it because I don't want the kids to ever read that kind of thing here - not from me.

    The hospital has not released the first names of the children and staff have described their medical conditions in broad terms. Brushing teeth is a behavioral issue and even there, they did not identify by name. They haven't broken any laws, imo.

    I worry about that all the time. I'm thinking they will all get new hairstyles and that will do a lot to make them less recognizable.

    Sadly, the intense care they will need to begin functioning in society after so much systemic abuse and deprivation is likely much more than the state will be able to provide.

    The only case I have heard of where the level of care necessary was given is in Jaycee Dugard and her daughters' case. But they won a few million form the state for the parole monitoring travesty. I'm sure they used a lot of that on that therapeutic horse ranch where they were able to work intensively and reintegrate into a society in a serene setting,with animal therapy and anonymity.

    I wish something like that for these sweet kids.
