We see the reports everyday. School decides to teach something over parents objections. Everything that your children see from the media, TV, and other adults conflicts with what you teach them. We send our children to school for the school to tell them that we are wrong, out-dated or simple minded.
So the question is who really is raising your children. Stop me if you have heard this, I have to be careful what I do so CPS doesn't show up and take away my children. So now we have parents afraid that the government will show up in the dead of night and sweep their children away. You have the government now coming between parents and their children.
There are many parents that have had the above scenario happen to them because someone did not like their particular parenting methods and decided they were out of line. So now others opinions are more important than yours when it comes to raising your own children.
Some people believe that children should be able to do whatever they so desire, with or without their parents permission. The courts have backed up children that did not agree with their parents teachings or standards and allowed them to do other things.
And of course the thing that really strikes hard is when the courts decide when you can and can't see your own children. What you can and can't do with your own children. What holidays and birthdays are important, and which ones aren't.
To top all of this off, you the parent is still responsible when your children screws up. Let them damage property, skip school, or worse yet commit a crime you will be the one paying the price. So in the country today are you a parent or are you simple a human factory whose job it is to breed new workers for society. Makes you think when put into those terms doesn't it?
