Vasaris, the Fuzzy Dragon [userpic]
Sometimes, I wonder what the hell is wrong with people.

If being a parent means I'm not allowed to discipline my child at all, I'm glad I'm CF.

For the link-phobic: A Quebec judge recinds a father's grounding of his daughter. He forbade her to go on a school trip because she was posting "inappropriate pictures" of herself and chatting on websites that he has tried to block her access to.

The judge felt that it was just too severe.

I stole this from cf_debate and one of the commenters also thought that it was horribly severe. I can't imagine why -- after all, the girl's life is just *over* if she can't go... wherever they're going, and frankly I don't care if it's Disneyland.

Me, if my mom had done that when I was a kid, it would be a form of instant popularity and commisseration. Apparently, the result these days is ridicule, or something.

But, whatever.

People wonder about the way kids behave. They can get away with anything because, apparently, even the non-invasive, non-corporal punishments are too horrible to contemplate.

*shakes head*

Comments

*blinks* That is retarded... I spent a full school quarter and more grounded and I never contemplated legal action... and it taught me actions have consequences *in this case doing bad in school and lieing about it* and that you'll have to pay the piper eventually *in this case, do better in school before the grounding goes away*

I could make a comment on french Canidians but that would be crude.

Seriously WHAT THE FUCK?

Your guess is as good as mine. Speculation on cf_debate ranges from "The kid is involved in a 10-year-old custody dispute so obviously she doesn't know any better than going to a judge" to "OMFG, WHAT A BRAT!"

What I don't get is this: Why the Guardian ad Litem (my guess about the court appointed lawyer) thought this was worth bringing to court and why the judge had such a hole in her reasoning that she thought it was somehow cruel/unfair to take away a school trip.

Both need kicks the the head with steel-toed clue-boots.
