Oh brother. That is all we need - intervention by do gooders that have no clue to the truth. Your suggestion has already been tried by government folks in Mass., Washington state and North Carolina. There were many instances of lies and blatant stories that were ridiculous and innocent lives ruined all in the name of protecting children.

WSJ won a Pulitzer in the 90s exposing these lies, but the damage was done.

Strangled a lot of rabid chihuahuas have you? Maybe you should try raising another breed.

Sorry. I have to realize that Internet typing hides tone, expressions, etc.

**Children should be told by school teachers and counselor to report any kind of abuse.**

I oppose any type of child abuse, but I oppose even more having government workers indoctrinating children to inform on their parents and becoming involved in the lives of private citizens. Hitler’s era had kids informing on their parents and we certainly don’t need that here in the US.

Obvious signs of physical abuse of a child should be reported to PROPER authorities, but teachers should not be telling the kids to report abuse to them. If the teachers notice signs of abuse on a child, then THEY should notify the proper authorities to investigate, just as a Doctor would. Teachers don’t have the right to glean information from children about their parents or homelife situations.

Subheading should have read “Receives overdue butt-whipping.”

Britton said Josh was barefoot, filthy, had insect bites and ticks on him, but "overall for nine days, he looked pretty good."

Hope they have the kid tested for Lyme Disease...

I was thinking how stupid they were to send Jack under the house. It wasn’t until later in the day, I learned they also had a dog named Jack.

I'm thinking it was just about as stupid to send the dog as it would have been to send your cousin. (Perhaps even more stupid.)
