17. Two things - parental concent - not knowing

Here we have a mother who has responsibility for raising HER child.

Then the law says - You shouldn't have done that
and the mother is surprised that she is in trouble.

You and I may have not have done the same but
this mother made a decision based on her logic.

Do we start to take children away from people
when a judge disagrees with a parental decision is made?

If you're going to do that then make up a rule book
that parents can study so they won't get in trouble.
Set up a hotline so the parents can call and ask what is
"acceptable" and what is not - And while they're at it
they can tell the parent what the fine will be or if they will
loose their children.

Where do we draw the line when judging parents and how they raise their children.

When I was growing up it was a parents decision iof they wanted to allow their child to smoke cigarettes. Most didn't but some did.
What should the penalty be?

It may be tough to watch but where do you draw the line.

If parents from the middle class vote republican -
do we take away their children?
Now there is a sign of irresponsibility if I've ever seen one.
Agree?
