Good parenting lowers crime and raises school performance. If a person reports a parent to Protective Services and the investigation finds no problem, the accuser should be flagged for investigated on grounds of bad parenting judgement and likely contributing to delinquency of their own children.
This is not retribution, but it’s wise because of two things: 1. We have the right to face our accusers and 2. being similar to “looser pays” it probably would help Protective Services and Police identify the REAL problem parents while reducing frivolous accusations against good parents.
When someone accuses a parent, that accuser is expressing a parenting philosophy opinion.
I was spanked as a child and I’m glad. “No-injury-no-mark-non-excessive” spanking should be considered good by the government. No marks or bruises.. no investigation or questions.
Protective Services agents should be experienced as Police Officers and required to have responsible adult children who recommend them. They should have instant rapport with young parents so they can give personal parenting advice effectively. Experienced police know REAL home problems very well and many 40 year old Police would love to give good advice to young parents and help prevent juvenile crime.
