Parenting is such a hot button topic, why can't we just agree to allowing different styles of it? No one wants someone else to tell them how to do it, even when it is with good intentions. Why are we so hands-off with this issue?Answer Question

I actually had someone on face book use the argument that the president NEEDED to talk to the children because some parents were stupid and still believed in death panels and such so the president needed to talk to them. omg PISSED me off! I told him I don't care if a parent believes and share with their child that a purple elephant is going to drop down from the sky and hand out gifts to those that pick their nose, as long as those children are healthy and not being beat on...that's their RIGHT. MY CHILDREN HANDS OFF! I may not agree with you r politics but they are your children and you get to raise them with YOUR beliefs and customs. I think we hit a slippery slope when we start justifying taking parents rights away. I think THAT is a subject that really should be made clear more often!
