I came up long before we started holding parents criminally liable for truancy... and then telling parents the very few valid excuses there are for a child not to be in class... none of which the parents are authorized to give.
I came up before the state told parents they had no say in the medical decision of their daughters concerning birth control or abortion...while simultaneously disallowing parents from sending their kids to school with Tylenol....or peanut butter sandwiches.
.. before the state decided that allowing your kids to be outside playing on their own was reason to investigate/incarcerate the parents.. or remove the kids from the household altogether.
...before parent had to sign a permission slip to allowing their children to eat cookies in school.
...before children in middle school were suspended for having a condom.. as well as threatened with a sexual harassment suit because the kids showed his friends ( that kid was my youngest son.. and resulted in the police escorting me from the premises for being extraordinarily uncivilized to the utter retards running that place.)
but meh, that's what we get when so many progressives are in positions of authority.. .they know what is best for the kids and the parents are just obstacles to be worked around, or removed.
