Parents Can't Win In The Eyes Of Liberal Elites

The cover of the April 2014 Atlantic Magazine is titled “The Over-Protected Kid: New Research Shows He'll Grow Up More Fearful And Less Creative”.

Provided he is not on welfare, is that really anyone's business?

The parents are pretty much screwed over any way they turn.

Let your kid run wild, and you'll get slapped with abuse allegations.

Not yet your kid play with matches and stick utensils in electric sockets?

You will liable get slapped with a stiffer penalty for stifling exploration and expression.

Let your child, especially the male ones, roughhouse as they please and verbalize whatever comes to mind, and they will be branded as “predators” and “harassers”, ending up on offender registries forcing them to live in tent cities deep in the woods.

Given that numerous parents have no doubt lost their health insurance as a result of Obamacare or have to pay deductibles through the roof so Sandra Fluke can live on her back with her thighs flayed open are those advocating childhoods of feral adventure going to pick up the emergency room tab?

Or are we suppose to gaze upon these injuries simply as a way of thinning the herd?
