Bravo to the judge for taking a common sense stand on this nonsense! Laura McNish, county attorney of Marshall County, Kansas should really pay attention here. Insistence upon respect from one's children for laws and policies concerning automobile insurance is not child abuse, and neither is the imposition of curfews and the requirement of chores. Parents also do not owe their children cell phones and Ipads, McNish. Restricting the use of such devices may make human trafficking more difficult for predators, but it is not child abuse. Conversely, unrestricted use of motor vehicles granted by negligent parents to unlicensed drivers does not, in any way, equal love.....Laura!
At least in Kansas, there is a case in Marshall County, styled State of Kansas v. Keith Lynn Henry, setting a precedent in cases involving these elements. Anyone in Kansas who is accused of child abuse for not giving a child a cell phone or an allowance, or for establishing curfews and rules; should refer to this case.
How did this case even moot court? Has the entire nation gone completely insane?
