They’re watching you right now.
They counted every beer you drank during last night’s Red Sox game.
They see you sneaking out to the garage for a smoke.
They know if you’ve got a gun, and where you keep it.
They’re your kids, and they’re the National Security Agency of the Nanny State.
Apparently the AAP feel it's the duty of doctors to grill children on their parents' illegal activities.
“The doctor wanted to know how much you and mom drink, and if I think it’s too much,” my daughter told us afterward, rolling her eyes in that exasperated 13-year-old way. “She asked if you two did drugs, or if there are drugs in the house.”
Well, so long as they're only asking about illegal activities, it's OK right?
Debbie is a mom from Uxbridge who was in the examination room when the pediatrician asked her 5-year-old, “Does Daddy own a gun?”
When the little girl said yes, the doctor began grilling her and her mom about the number and type of guns, how they are stored, etc.
If the incident had ended there, it would have merely been annoying.
But when a friend in law enforcement let Debbie know that her doctor had filed a report with the police about her family’s (entirely legal) gun ownership, she got mad.
If I would have told you that people you trust were encouraging your kids to tell them about your activities so they could report you to the authorities, you'd probably laugh in my face.
(I probably would have too)
This is just so wrong that it would almost be comical if it wasn't actually happening.
Good fucking luck to all of us. We're going to need it.
(BTW, I'm getting tired of having to say that.)
