Children’s minister Sarah Teather said … “These reforms will put parents in charge. We trust parents to do the right thing for their own child because they know what is best.”
Hmm. Need we recall the anti-vaccination movement, chelation therapy for autism, homeopathy for eczema…
I’m not saying parents shouldn’t have the right to decide things, but the idea that they have some magic pipeline to good decision-making just because they are parents is garbage.
