Overruled: Invasion of your parental rights

Overruled: Invasion of your parental rights

Although the music and acting is a little overdone, the message of this documentary is important.  The cases are well-known and legitimate and the analysis of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is accurate.   There is definitely a mindset and movement abroad that continues to diminish parental rights.  Whether or not you’re on board with a parental rights amendment, you should be concerned and be educated on the things that may be happening in your community and state.

Take a few minutes and watch the trailer for this documentary and if you have 30 minutes watch the entire documentary.  You owe it to yourself and to your children.

    I had originally signed up for parentalrights.org ‘s emails many months ago because I thought the organization would defend things like the right to educate a child and make religious decisions, but it ended up not making that its focus, it ended up being more of a right-to-spank convention. This made me sad because they are not going to win if it’s all about the right to hit, they are going to lose a lot of support. Most parents support parental rights, but half of Americans don’t believe in physically harming little children. I ended up withdrawing my support from the organization too. I didn’t see anything about slapping children in the video which makes me think that parental rights is changing their focus, hopefully. If spanking truly did help children and didn’t harm any children (I understand some personalities can “take it” more and turn out fine as adults) I would be fine. But many children do suffer from the aftereffects of it (including myself as an adult), children with disabilities get spanked more, areas of the country where spanking is more accepted has more school violence, children that get spanked more are attracted to violent video games–these are not ideas reasoned out in my head, these are real studies. If they play the spanking card they will be defeated, I’m just warning to whom it may concern–don’t play that card, it’s not worth it. (Just as a side note I am DEFINITELY concerned about the declining morality and lack of children’s respect, but I believe it is due more to things like the rise in things like unrestricted/uncensored media access and lack of parental involvement in a child’s upbringing, not in how physically agressive, painful, and forceful a parent’s form of punishment is during babyhood/early childhood)
