[PODCAST] #481: How Do We Empower Parents Against the Expanding Nanny State?

Play

David DeLugas has 35 years of experience practicing family law. During that time he has observed some disturbing trends in state intrusions into the parent-child relationship. Today he serves as Executive Director and General Counsel for the National Association of Parents, a 501(c)(3) member charitable association.

David DeLugas and I discuss:
the problems created by divorce + family court - school attendance: how schools create criminals out of parents - is there an anti-family ideology at work? - CPS intrusions - the public's assumption of benevolence when it comes to bureaucracies - zero tolerance - Lenore Skenazy and free-range kids - helicopter parenting enforced by law - the long-term costs of over-parenting by government

From ParentsUSA.org:
The Voice for Parents in the USA. Relying only on the U.S. Constitution, the National Association of Parents preserves and supports the parent-child relationship and the right of parents to raise their own child as they see fit, so long as the child is not harmed through strategic litigation and through education and lobbying to shape public policy. As our membership grows, so, too, will our economic clout and ability to support parents and children fighting and coping with serious medical issues, to fund child abuse prevention and children’s medical research, particularly the rare illnesses and diseases that are severely underfunded, and to secure benefits and discounts for our member parents.
