    So non-biological "parents" can't care?

    Oh?

    Is that from the parent's viewpoint or the child's?

    Or is it because most parents aren't member of the CIA?

    By those standards one would think murder and other high crimes in Texas would be extremely low. You're talking of the death penalty as deterrent, and that argument has been well debunked for quite some time.

    It's a property argument. The parent can't spy on the child since the parent owns the child and everything the child has.

    Caring and complete devotion is not the same thing. I care about my dog, but I am not devote to it.

    I'm trying to define the parameters of your statement. Since you made such a large sweeping absolute statements

    Ever saw a kid throwing a tantrum when a parent takes away a pebble the kid was trying to stuff up his nose? Or a kid in flood of tears when a parent didn't allow him to do Peter Pan from the top of the stairs? Should parents allow their child to do whatever the child wants in order not to opress the child's freedoms? Or should parents exercise their will until their child will turn into an adult (psychologically)?

    Don't try. When you will have your own kids, you will understand without any "parameters" and "statements". You can't learn to love unconditionally, you just do.

    Is death penalty compulsory in Texas?

    Aww, how absurd and condescending of you. But you're still wrong. The point isn't that I have to "have kids" to blah blah blah stupid crap. It's not like a person exists as a singularity until they become a parent. And unconditional love is not limited only to one's offspring. The point is that you're statement is incorrect since the absolute statement is not true in absolutely all circumstances. It's an overstatement.
