Before I start I urge all PARENTS visit parentalrightsus.org. , parentalrights.org I also urge all Parents to Visit Johnbradshaw.com for resources and tips on parenting because let’s face it, at times we could all use a little help when it comes to childrearing…the toughest, yet most rewarding thing in the world. Also if you know of parenting resources please share.
Let’s Dive in:
I read an interesting article today, and really it kind of typifies what is going on in America. I hate to say that the state is bullying but sometimes I really think they are. My feelings and opinion about Debra Harell leaving her 9-year-old unsupervised in a park this summer might come as strange to some, because I believe children, even over the age of nine, should NOT be exposed to some of the New texts and lessons being given in Health classes and because I am emphatically against the sexually explicate book “It’s Perfectly Normal” (which includes information about abortion) being in an elementary school … But…to that end: After reviewing the information in Ms. Harell’s case, I don’t think she did anything wrong. Well..not enough to have her child taken and to be arrested.
Let me give you the run down, and then I hope we can dialogue on this to help come up with some solutions that don’t involve yet another running to the “government” for help.
According to The Associated Press: Debra Harrell left her nine-year child to play at Summerfield Park. The park has a splash pad, a playground, and basketball courts. The park also has volunteers who come by with free breakfast and lunch. And while her child is not the only one at the park without a parent, because the park holds the feed-a-child program, the single mother was arrested, spent the night in jail, and lost custody of her child for 17 days. Presently she is facing up to 10 years in prison if she is convicted.
