Do we need the media, or the law to tell us how to raise our children, really? Last week I saw a story which chaps my hide. On a family outing, it seems, a four year old boy was dropped off a bridge into a river by an adult friend of the mother. He emerged unharmed into the care of another adult. True, the boy screamed. True, he was scared, but unharmed. From all appearences, in the video, the boy was never in any danger. It was all in fun.
The mistake the mother made was in posing the video on social media. The mainstream media got ahold of it and are having a field day. Now the mother is up on charges of child endangerment. The media is crying for blood, saying the mother should be imprisoned, and the boy put in foster-care. Why so he can be abused, sexually abused, or worse. Haven't you heard the horror stories about foster-care.
But that's all fine, until it happens to you for nothing more than taking your kid out for some fun. Why can't those ppl just mind their own damn business. Soon enough, the media will spur-on the government to take all our kids, and then what?
