U.S. government: We know parenting better than you

[FONT=Georgia][size=4]Proposals would give Washington unprecedented control over kids

The U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to debate two bills that could give the federal government unprecedented control over the way parents raise their children – even providing funds for state workers to come into homes and screen babies for emotional and developmental problems.
The Pre-K Act (HR 3289) and the Education Begins at Home Act (HR 2343) are two bills geared toward military and families who fall below state poverty lines. The measures are said to be a way to prevent child abuse, close the achievement gap in education between poor and minority infants versus middle-class children and evaluate babies younger than 5 for medical conditions.

And make sure you have a pack of the small yellow stickies with you so you can mark the passages that really hit home. Write on the stickies to mark the subject because I guarantee that you will use a lot of them!

The references would be very useful in the continuing debates here at Catholic Answers Forums, as the discussion of topics of left versus right and the prominence of the Roman Catholic Church figures into the battle.

Sometimes I think the federal and state governments are ten times worse than the British government that the colonists got fed up with. :mad:
