So as not to derail Cons thread about obesity I'll start a new one about butting out of my kids education. School should be concentrating on teaching children the basics and they don't even seem to be able to do that well. I don't need them to tell my daughter what to eat, how much, how often, how much and what kind of exercise to engage in, let alone grade schoolers learning about intercourse, condoms, providing pregnancy tests, or arranging abortions without parental knowledge or consent. When did the state decide that we are too stupid to raise our children so they will determine what they will learn and when?

@ Jeanie: So you won't tell them? What about the CHILDREN? If you won't protect them who will? Oh you won't do it but you will hire someone else to do it (government/school) for you? Where does that authority to decide what is best for my child end?

@ Angel: S.C. case looks on child obesity as child abuse. But is it? - USATODAY.com

So is this helping the child? Parent in jail, not allowed to see each other? Oh I'm sure he is much happier in foster care because everyone I ever knew that was in that situation thinks it was the beat time of their lives. As the article said, it is not like the mother force fed her child. But now she is facing criminal charges and her family has been destroyed? Yea, I'm sure everyone is better off now that the state is involved.

When it comes to my girls learning the value of good nutrition, whether it be through school or another source, I'm all for it. It benefits them.

I'm completely against anything more than a basic sex eduaction class for older elementary kids, and that's only because so many parents are afraid to discuss the topic with their children. I will never approve of passing out condoms in school, talking about various sexual positions, or abortion. These are values that MUST be taught at home.

I agree. I like how we make this whole stink about living our lives the way we see fit, and like it's your body do what you want. But we show we want that by giving other people like the government, the control the way we live. We don't need anymore government controlled things period. It's just not how it was meant to be.

Force feeding him or not, the kid was on a course for self destruction because the mom didn't step in and help him make better choices. Should she have been allowed to continue the path of neglecting her sons needs in favor of his wants?

as I said before, it's not all about you and your kid(s). It's about the greater good of society as a whole. If you don't like what's going on in the schools, then become active in your local school board.

Yeah exactly. Fixing this has to start with the FAMILY. I think sex ed shouldn't be taught until maybe junior high, and only teach about the topic because most parents are afraid.

@ Angel: Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying nutrition is not to be taught in school at any level. But it is the parents responsibility to teach our children, just as I am sure that you do with yours. It becomes a problem when your neighbor decides that you aren't doing it right/good enough and takes matters into their own hands.

You guys can say "it starts with family" and "it's the parents responsibility" all you want, but you seem to not be listening to me say that some parents just don't care. So to hell with their kids? That is so morally wrong.

Again I ask: where does it end? When "society" decides my daughter needs to know about birth control or to arrange an abortion?

...oy.

I always find it funny when people make statements like this such as "stop telling me what to do" or "stop telling my kid what to do" or anything along those lines . . . and then they go on to say things like "abortion should be illegal" or "porn should be illegal". I'm not directing this at you SS, I'm just saying. The right does a lot of spouting about the government getting the hell out of their lives, then they want laws prohibiting marijuana usage, banning abortions, censoring language, and teaching creationism in schools. Of course it's not just the right, but since they're the ones most likely to be high on their own freedoms, they're a bigger target for this hypocrisy.

Bottom line, nobody wants their kids or themselves to be completely left alone. They just want to be told what they want to hear meaning sure they want their kid to be taught things . . . as long as it is what they want.
