Protective Services Shows Up At Mom’s Home Over Something Parents Have Been Doing For 1000s Of Years
” A mother from Austin, Texas, is making national headlines after blogging about how Child Protective Services (CPS) unexpectedly showed up at her home.
CBS News reports:
” A Texas mom started a parenting debate this month, blogging about her six-year-old playing outside by himself.
…Kari Anne Roy knows all about the joys and challenges of raising a child. She has three of them. Her youngest — six-year-old Isaac — recently gained the privilege of playing outside alone for a few minutes.
Cases like this are becoming all too common:
- A South Carolina mother was recently arrested for letting her 9-year-old play at a park (that has an average of 40 kids playing at it per day) while she was at work.
- An Ohio father was charged with child endangerment after his 8-year-old son skipped church (unbeknownst to the father) and went to play instead.
- A Florida mom had to post a $4,000.00 bond after permitting her 7-year-old son to walk to the park.”
