No Time Out for You

From AFP comes Court overturns father's grounding of 12-year-old

Well you've got to be freakin' kidding me comes to mind. Boy I hope this was a peice of shoddy journalism. Otherwise how do you explain this?

On what grounds did the girl complain? She filed a complaint to over turn her grounding? Jeeze why didn't I think of that when I was younger. Don't agree with Dad? What about the appellate court of Mom. BUT Should that fail there is always the Provincial Superior court. Heaven help me.

"She's a child," Beaudoin told AFP. "At her age, children test their limits and it's up to their parents to set boundaries."

No Sh*T sherlock! Guess what you just did? You just told her that those boundaries don't really apply.

According to court documents, the girl's Internet transgression was just the latest in a string of broken house rules. Even so, Justice Suzanne Tessier found her punishment too severe.

Let's see twelve years from now will I be saying this to babyX (Charlotte)

"Now you, you've crossed the line so I want you to know in a loving and NON judgemental way that it is okay if you think it is ok. And after you've ok'd it maybe we could go a tatoo, facial peircing or something cool and progressive like that?"

For the record our "Conservative" Justice Minister appointed this Judge. And you wonder why people thinking voting for Judges is a good idea.
