Parents don't not leave their kids alone because they fear something might happen to them. They fear the moral disapproval. Only in the past decade or so has "no child left alone" become the social and legal norm in the U.S.

News reports and crime shows feed exaggerated fears. But Thomas and her co-authors note that legal norms needn't follow inaccurate beliefs about risks. "The fact that many people irrationally fear air travel does not result in air travel being criminalized," they write. "Parents are not arrested for bringing their children with them on airplanes. In contrast, parents are arrested and prosecuted for allowing their children to wait in cars, play in parks, or walk through their neighborhoods without an adult."

The justices examine the language in Arizona's sexual abuse laws, which does not require sexual intent in order to be charged.

"The statue says intentionally or knowingly having sexual contact. Well sexual contact is just the direct or indirect touching of the genital of something else of the child. That is where the changing of the diaper could come into play," said legal analyst Monica Lindstrom.

Laying out its plans to keep Children and Family Services staffing levels strong and defending the agency's law enforcement relationship, county officials authorized a formal defense this week to a critical grand jury report.

Authorized by the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, the formal response comes as CFS deals with a series of offensives. Two weeks before the grand jury report in early July found the agency marred by significant under-staffing and a disconnect with law enforcement, the state Department of Justice announced it was reviewing the agency's "compliance with California laws intended to ensure the safety and well-being of children, including children in the dependency system."

As if the CDC didn't already have enough sweeping powers, the agency's new proposed regulations (if approved) will grant it unprecedented authority to do pretty much anything it wants - including detainment, forced medical treatments and forced vaccines.

The new proposed regulations can be found here, but don't expect to see a straightforward explanation of what they actually mean - despite the fact that the agency is required to give one, according to the rules set out in the 2010 Plain Language Act. In fact, although the CDC claims to have adhered to the Plain Language Act in drawing up the proposed regulations, it still requires a lot of patience and possibly some experience with complicated legalese mumbo jumbo to get at the true meaning.

As the mumps outbreak spreads in part of Arkansas, state officials should do more to minimize the disruption in the education of children who have not been vaccinated against disease, some lawmakers said Monday.

Those guidelines call for unvaccinated children to be excluded from schools where an outbreak has occurred until 26 days after the last instance of a person developing the swollen salivary glands often caused by the disease. Students who develop symptoms are excluded until the disease is not considered contagious -- five days after they develop the swollen glands.

The Transatlantic Consumer Dialogue (TACD)[1], a network of 77 EU and U.S. consumer organisations, today published a new resolution on consumer concerns about new genetic engineering techniques.

Consumers have right to know when new genetic engineering techniques are used, including in their food, but companies are lobbying to exempt such products from regulation. A number of new genetic engineering techniques have been developed which were not in use when current laws on genetically modified organisms (GMOs) were drafted.

Increasingly, when Americans "dare" to color outside the lines of government food regulation, those who seek to rule us label them extremists and, now, even "agri-terrorists."

As noted by Daisy Luther at The Organic Prepper, officials in more than one state have turned into food Nazis: It looks like Michigan is not the only state with a Department of Agriculture that is adamant about the best interests of their citizens. Residents in Pennsylvania can now breathe a little bit easier since an illegal enterprise has been shut down.

For years, few questioned how doctors treated the emotional trauma of California's abused and neglected children - and nobody monitored how often they handed out psychiatric drugs that can turn fragile childhoods into battles with obesity...

Now, a Bay Area News Group investigation into the prescribing habits of the state's foster care doctors reveals for the first time how a fraction of those physicians has been fueling the medicating of California's most vulnerable kids. A mere 10 percent of the state's highest prescribers were responsible about 50 percent of the time when a foster child received an antipsychotic, the riskiest class of what are known as psychotropic drugs - with some of the most harmful side effects.
