A tiny baby is left to cry for an hour each evening because “you aren’t supposed to feed babies more often than every 4 hours”.
Toddlers are locked in their bedrooms by their parents.
Children are shut in dark closets to discipline them.
Children are never allowed to get ‘messy’, be it jumping in puddles, getting muddy or even playing with soap bubbles in the kitchen sink.
Babies are left to cry because “it’s good for their lungs”.
Babies spend their days sitting in jiggling baby seats or lying in playpens for their first 6 months and their legs end up like jelly, no muscle tone whatsoever!
Toddlers left with ‘caregivers’ (what an oxymoronic term in situations like this!) who say “she won’t let me change her nappy (diaper)”.
Swimming pools with ‘green’ water – NOT just for Halloween!!
Toddlers called ‘Rat Bag’, instead of their real name, all year round.
Children under age 3 watching scary ‘all ages’ cartoon movies throughout the year.
Parents who won’t take their toddlers to the park because of their own germ phobia.
A young teenager is sent to camp with beads instead of his Ritalin in the medicine bottle!
Teachers who fake science project results.
Anyone who sends a 7 year old to boarding school for any reason!
Any child left with any caregiver (even a parent) who doesn’t talk to the child!
Babies with flat head syndrome who have spent too much time lying and sleeping on their backs.
The most horrific aspect of all these scary happenings is that they have all occurred in the last half of the 20th Century and in the first 7 years of the 21st Century!
Aren’t we supposed to be more enlightened?
I’m aghast at the horror of it all.
