While you're at it Carl, why don't you try to institute fines
for parents that take their children to the beach. After all,
exposure to the sun causes cancer. With the child obesity statistics,
maybe someone should monitor parents who feed their children
at McDonald's. How about soda pop and candy? Excessive amounts
of this type of snack can cause diabetes. Allowing children
to watch television or play video games can also cause children
to adopt aggressive tendencies. And, let's not forget the parents
who leave the car door open while they are filling it with gas.
Gasoline fumes get into the car and the children could potentially
be harmed by this. Maybe, you should try to institute fines
for parents who allow their children to ride skateboards, bikes,
scooters or motorcycles. Helmets don't always protect them from
other injuries. How about premarital sex? That's an issue that
most people are familiar with nowadays.
As far as you indicating that
you are a member of the school board, I am not impressed. My
kids have more homework than classwork! If you want to protect
other people's children, start with their educational future,
since you obviously think you're in a position to do so. While
you're at it, teach them that it is wrong to sneak into a public
facility and use the services without paying. What a great example
that particular school board member is setting!!
I would suggest that you raise your own child and let other parents
raise theirs. I personally am sick and tired of other people
deciding what is best for my children. They're my children not
yours. Mind your own business.
I didn't write this letter nearly as eloquently as Dinah Pearson
did, mainly because I was so angry when I read your know-it-all
letter. However Dinah, you go girl!
