Mom puts unruly tweens out of the car...

Mom Ejects Girls Drives Off

This could have been a very good learning experience for these girls. At 10 and 12 they could have learned that their mom means what she says, that she follows through with her threats and that they are expected to act decent to each other...instead, they are learning that they have power to fight their mom when they are punished and that the state and the judicial system will help them.

I think this is so sad and a real example of how difficult it can be to be a good parent when the state is looking over your shoulder all the time making your parenting decisions for you. Makes me want to start my own "creepy compound" where me and my friends can live and raise our children as we see fit without the threat of prosecution at every turn and we might have a chance to raise healthy responsible adults, the more stuff like this happens the more I wonder if that is even possible in today's society with the current judicial/legislative system...hey Rachel, you still interested in finding a big piece of land for a compound in Wyoming?

DUDE!!! I totally agree with you! When I heard what she did I thought.. WOW.. Love and Logic.. AWESOME! But.. like you said.. we are constantly being watched! It sucks that what at one point was discipline is now considered abuse. GET REAL!
