Meh. That's why I'm glad it's not up to me.
An unfit parent is an unfit parent, regardless of height, weight, race. DD's ears are peirced. I do not believe in physical discipline, although I do know a few parents who do. I have no REAL, or TRUE political beliefs. I don't lean either which way. I vote. What's right to me is right and what's wrong is wrong. It's all a matter of opinion. Thankfully my opinion doesn't affect the parental rights of others, in a sense I see your point. The government does try to over-control in some aspects, but in others they don't step in enough! I know 2 people who have a child the same age as mine, they're herion addicts and have been arrested several times for theft and whatnot, THE CHILD BEING WITH THEM, and they've gotten him back every single time. CPS and the governement in MD isn't worth crap. Maybe in some states they over-step. But here they don't seem to give a damn about the welfare of the children. Hence why I've been happy to see them at least APPEAR to give a damn about the children in MD by passing the no smoking in cars law. IMO of course.
