The Third Parent


Posted on July 3, 2014 by The Political Hat


The Scottish parliament is considering a new law, the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act, that would mandate the state assign, fore each and every child, a “named person” to act as a super-guardian to insure that parents don’t raise their child contrary to the whims of the state.


“This act – one of the most significant of the past decade – will mean the state appointment of a ‘named person’ for every child, from birth to the age of 18. These have been dubbed ‘state guardians’, which is not a bad description of their role. They are not practicing a particular profession or service, such as education or healthcare, but instead will have a general interest in the ‘wellbeing’ of their allotted child or children, as do parents or guardians. And not just in cases where a child is at risk, but in all cases, for all children.”


The “named person” will follow reports about a child and constantly monitor the family, but will also proactively intervene to make sure that parents don’t interfere with how the state believes the children ought to be raised: Scissors-32x32.png

All your children belong to us




Is any freedom more important, more sacred than the right to raise a family without government intrusion?


It’s a good question to ask this Independence Day weekend, as Americans reflect on the birth of a nation dedicated to the preservation of individual liberties: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life,

Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”


But as government grows bigger and more powerful, as politicians, bureaucrats and busybodies increasingly think they know best, American families constantly must fight interference in their most personal decisions and judgments.


Of all the threats to our freedoms — warrantless snooping, government secrecy, expanded police powers — none worries me more than the relentless march of the Nanny State, which not only assumes that all parents are unfit to raise children, but that parents themselves must be treated like children.


It’s not a stretch to say that this movement considers all children the property of the state. As proof, look at what’s happening in Scotland.


The Scottish government for years has pursued what amounts to state-sponsored surveillance of families.Scissors-32x32.png
