Parenting at Risk!

I've posted up a video of this issue a while back, but this is such a critical issue! I am urging everyone who reads my blog (or is a parent) (or who values the fact that parents know best for their children) to PLEASE, Please check out this link and the related link, .

If this thing gets ratified, it has SERIOUS implications for our children and the future of our nation. If it goes through it will not be good. We need to stand up.

An exerpt from the blog post I linked:

"If The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is ratified, then each child will have a list of rights, of which they will be taught to know by heart in the public schools that they will be attending by the choice of the UN and our government. Here are a few of those "rights:"

The right to privacy - Yep. If you suspect your teenager has pot stashed in his room, you would not be allowed to go in there and find out. Your child could end up dying from a drug problem, but you couldn't interfere, or it would have violated their "right to privacy."

Freedom of expression - If your toddler throws a temper tantrum, you are not allowed to do anything. If your teen starts yelling the 'f' word out the widow of the car while you are driving to the grocery store, you are not allowed to do anything. The parent would have no right to interfere with the child's "freedom of expression."

If your child decides to take home another child and go to their room and close the door and have sex, you cannot stop them, else you'd be violating their "freedom of expression" and "freedom of privacy." Do you think I'm exaggerating? I'm not...

Here are a few excerpts from HSLDA:

"Under Article 13, any attempts to prevent their children from interacting with material parents deem unacceptable is forbidden. Children are vested with a "freedom of expression" right, which is virtually absolute. No allowance is made for parental guidance. Section 1 declares a child's right to "seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of the child's choice.

"In Article 14, children are guaranteed "freedom of thought, conscience and religion." Children have a legal right to object to all religious training. Alternatively, children may assert their right against parental objection to participate in the occult.

Article 15 declares "the right of the child to freedom of association." Parents could be prevented from forbidding their child to associate with people deemed to be objectionable companions. Under Article 15, children could claim a "fundamental" right to join gangs, cults, and racist organizations over parental objection."

I mean - if reading that doesn't get your hair raised at the thought of your children (or any children) being granted that kind of freedom, I don't know what will. I mean, I was a good kid, but I know that there were MANY times that my parents stopped me from doing some REALLY STUPID things - I wasn't happy about it at the time, but now I know it was for the best. Just imagine what could happen if each time a teenager was grounded for doing something they could charge their parents with a crime! Not a good idea, folks!!

This is an important issue, please take the time to get informed.
