You should have to have a license to be a parent.
There, I said it. I never, EVER, thought I would say that.
Before I was as conservative as I am today, I was left of center in my college days. Hell, I even drove to Mexico to build houses for folks who were trying to get into the country. Though I admit even my liberal self had limits. The YMCA group I went down there with actually wanted to smuggle an immigrant to Minnesota. I vetoed that plan.
You need a license to drive. To catch a fish and check out a book. But anyone can be a parent:
A 22-year-old North Carolina woman who put her toddler in boiling water and burned his foot with a cigarette has been sentenced to prison.
Prosecutors said Rich put her son in a pan of boiling water in October 2008 as punishment because he was constipated. He was treated for third-degree burns on his bottom. He had a cigarette burn on his left foot and other injuries.
Serious. Miss Rich has no business being responsible for another life.
