Batas ng Punong Bayan Arnel F. Mendoza na nagsusulong sa karapatan ng mga bata. Ang bata ay mahalaga sa lipunan, at sa pamamagitan ng Municipal Council for the Protection of Children, ay magkakaroon ito ng katuparan sa Bustos. Nawa ang lahat ng mga barangay ay magbuo din ng Barangay Councils for the Protection of Children. Hindi malayong ang Bustos ay maging child-friendly municipality pagdating ng panahon.
