Who is the parent here?

More like who the f* do they think they are?  Americans now a days say "look how great Canada is with their socialized medicine." Seriously folks, WAKE this what you want America to become?!?!?!

First there's the whole hate speech crap where people are being brought before some sort of government tribunal for saying homosexuality is wrong. 

Now this:

12-Year-Old Grounded for Too Much Internet Use Gets Punishment Overturned in Court

A Canadian court has overturned a father's punishment for his daughter after she refused to stay off the Internet, his attorney said Wednesday.

The girl, 12, took her father to Quebec Superior Court after he refused to allow her to go on a school trip for chatting on Web sites and then posting "inappropriate" pictures of herself online using a friend's computer, AFP reported.

The punishment was for the girl's "own protection," according to the father's attorney, Kim Beaudoin, who is appealing the ruling.

"She's a child," Beaudoin told AFP. "At her age, children test their limits and it's up to their parent to set boundaries. I started an appeal of the decision today to reestablish parental
authority, and to ensure that this case doesn't set a precedent."

Otherwise, she continued, "Parents are going to be walking on egg shells from now on."

According to court documents, the girl's Internet usage was the latest in a rash of disciplinary problems. But Justice Suzanne Tessier, who was presiding over the case, found the punishment too severe.

Regina, I gotta love your outspoken, tell it like it is nature. I tend to pussy foot around things. I cannot believe the judge overruled the punishment and even why such a thing went to court. Makes me think. Thanks. I need to think. I think.
