Mom Gone Wild

I despise 90%+ of the “kids left alone in car” hysteria stories that the cops and media blow out of proportion so that the police state and social (un)services can claim moral superiority. But not this case, if the alleged story is correct.

Kid Kontrol, or, Organized Insanity

Friday, April 20, 2012 11:14 No Comments

Whenever I see this intellectual debris being touted in the media and the self-declared childhood consulting community, I am reminded that America is becoming a wasteland of mind-numbing idiocy where the masses of mini-authoritarians are hell-bent on managing, planning, and dominating every aspect of human living. Children are usually the target of the totalitarians-at-large, and as [...]

Can’t We Just Ban Unruly Brats?

As opposed to banning ice cream trucks to placate the parents of spoiled children? From CBS New York comes this great headline: “Park Slope Parents Want Ice Cream Trucks Banned To Avoid Testy Tantrums From Tots.” Dozens of recent comments on a Park Slope parents message blog said ice cream vendors need to leave the [...]

Kid Left in Car? It’s a Crime.

The American Sissy State has become obsessed with stories of parents leaving children in cars. Yes, there have been some horrifying incidents where awful parents have left young children, and even babies, in the car to bake or suffocate to death. These people, however, are the outliers, not the norm. Yet so few cases of [...]

Obsessive Parents Ruin Easter Egg Hunt

Wednesday, March 28, 2012 19:43 4 Comments

I am always amused by the obsessive parent syndrome I witness on the part of friends, co-workers, and other folks I know. They are constantly preoccupied by their children, and they think everyone else wants to hear all about them all of the time. News: not. These poor children are bound by structure, events, organized [...]

It’s “for the children,” so thank the paternal state. This is a speed limit sign in southeastern Michigan (Oakland County). The enforcement will be interesting. Thanks to Travis Holte for the link.

The Next Public Health Crisis

Here is the next public health crisis that will demand bureaucratic solutions, government intervention, and the federalization of Child Protective Services: child abuse. This article on MSN Health presents some statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control that appears to set the pace for federal oversight of snatching children from homes to force them into [...]

Parents Aren’t Safe

Here’s another way for the government-media safety parade propaganda machine to sell folks on the dangers of biological parents and the “safety” of our government parents: thanks to parental negligence, kids bring “unsafe” lunches to school that are ripe for bacteria. As usual, researchers study something – anything – that is insignificant and turn the [...]

Strawberry Slavery

Young kids, with nothing better to do, barely making the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. Horrors! And in sweeps the Feds to save the day. Two of the southwest Washington state growers cited with fines – George Hoffman Farms and Berry Good Farms – were found to be in violation of minimum wages [...]

Homeland Security for the Home

A double-agent of the state (cop and politician) has a creepy message for parents.  The state senator and former NYC cop shows you how to spy on your children (defined as protecting your home and family).
