"Wash your kids' mouth out with soap if they say a curseword."  That was then.  Today, that's called CHILD ABUSE.

Wash Your Kids Mouth Out With Soap!

Woman Charged with Abuse for Sunburned Kids!


"Wash Your Kids Mouth Out With Soap!"

Remember that?  Parents were told that they should do this.  Although the child abuse laws are vague and have not really become clearer, people can now be arrested and charged as child abusers for the same thing that was acceptable in the 70's.  I am not saying that it is right or wrong.  All I am saying is that legislatures need to adequately spell out what is considered child abuse.  Stealing is stealing, murder is murder, but many people don't know what child abuse is.  For example, is it okay to spank with a hand or a belt. And if so, where.  If so, how hard.  If so, what is considered too young and what is considered too old?  The legislature also needs to understand that there is a generation of new parents (aged 25 to 35) who were disciplined with belts and switches.  Don't you owe it to us to let us know that it was wrong.  Are we the lost generation?  The generation that no one cares about?  The generation that is being held responsibility for the faults of the Baby Boomer generation?  It doesn't seem quite fair.

So don't wash your child's mouth out with soap.   And children at the age of 7 and 8 are walking around cursing like drunken sailors. The laws have not changed...just the attitude. 

Social Workers have been given authority to act as lawyers (interpreting the law) without ever having passed a bar exam.  Then their decisions become LAW and judges and lawyers use these reports as EVIDENCE.  It's as if we have a 4th arm of government.

On Page 7 of DSS/DFS Child Abuse & Neglect Report for Calendar year 2000:

In 2000, there were 50,936 reports of child abuse/neglect involving 79,693 children.  There were 6,871 probable cause reports involving 9,854 children. Now do the math....how many families had their children removed from the home or were suddenly GUILTY and had to prove their innocence.  READ MORE
