Your Kids Doctor Spying on You!

    Just another day I'm glad to not have any kids.

    From the Boston Herald:
    They’re watching you right now.
    They counted every beer you drank during last night’s baseball 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.
    I found this out after my 13-year-old daughter’s annual checkup. Her pediatrician grilled her about alcohol and drug abuse.
    Not my daughter’s boozing. Mine.
    “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.”
    “What!” I yelped. “Who told her about my stasher, I mean, ‘It’s an outrage!’ ”
    I turned to my wife. “You took her to the doctor. Why didn’t you say something?”
    She couldn’t, she told me, because she knew nothing about it. All these questions were asked in private, without my wife’s knowledge or consent.
    “The doctor wanted to know how we get along,” my daughter continued. Then she paused. “And if, well, Daddy, if you made me feel uncomfortable.”
    Great. I send my daughter to the pediatrician to find out if she’s fit to play lacrosse, and the doctor spends her time trying to find out if her mom and I are drunk, drug-addicted sex criminals.
    We’re not alone, either. Thanks to guidelines issued by the American Academy of Pediatrics and supported by the commonwealth, doctors across Massachusetts are interrogating our kids about mom and dad’s “bad” behavior.
    We used to be proud parents. Now, thanks to the AAP, we’re “persons of interest.”
    The paranoia over parents is so strong that the AAP encourages doctors to ignore “legal barriers and deference to parental involvement” and shake the children down for all the inside information they can get.

    Read the whole thing

    Something that really steamed me while reading an editorial about this.

    The writer said that one problem was "what if the child reports the presence of a gun and it's just a water gun instead of a real reportable firearm"

    Since when does a parent owning a firearm become something "reportable" that the American Academy of Pediatrics needs to know about!!

    George Orwell was such a prophet.

    My wife attends all our our pediatrician appointments. Since we home school, the nurse practitioner started asking questions of my then 5 year old daughter. It went like this:

    NP: "So, do you have friends?"
    D: "Yes"
    NP: "How ofter do you see them?"
    D: "Not too often. We are busy"
    NP: "Do you see them every day?"
    D: "No. Saturday & Sunday"
    NP: with air of concern, "You need to play with them more often"
    D: Ok

    The NP looked over at my wife with a look of wonder by how little time she got to play with friends...but the little girl is 5, how would she know that playing with friends or "socialization" would include:

    1) Monday Night: 2 hours of AWANA/Bible Study and games
    2) Tuesday Morn: Musik Garten with 20 kids
    3) Tuesday Aft: Gymnastics with 10 kids
    4) WED: Ballet dance classes with 15 little girls with playtime after
    5) Thurs: Tae Kwon Do with 10 other kids
    6) Fri-Sun: Playnight with neighbors

    They do ask the gun question. Train your kids the proper responses:

    1) Yes there are guns in the house.
    2) They are locked up
    3) I shoot them with my daddy
    4) My daddy carries a gun every day, if you **** him he will carry a grudge for many years.
    5) All 7 year olds should be able to hit a quarter at 25 yards with a .22 rifle
    6) How many guns do you have, nurse jane?
    7) When the day come that I may be called to protect my country, I will be a rifle woman, not a cook.
    8) Sit and Spin Bitch!

    **** the Doctors. **** the Nurses. The are simply becoming agents for the nanny state. I am getting tired of the intrusions.

    My father had a good friend that was an MBA/Lawyer from a top school. He worked for the IRS initially and learned their ways...then left to do income tax work. His exact words about accountants:

    "Accounts are an extended arm of the IRS. This is due to the fact that if there are any mistakes, the IRS will pull the license from the accountant and destroy their life. With this in mind, never use a large firm to do your accounting because they will never venture into the grey areas of accounting and, as a result, you will pay more in taxes than necessary because they will always error on the government side of the line--just like an IRS agent".

    Our doctors are a defacto arm of the government and it will only get worse.

    Teachers (read "The NEA") are also involved in this...
