Umm...is everyone a little prissy and prudish or is my moral/ethical compass totally broken?

It just doesn't seem like much of a huge deal to me.

I just don't see where teaching a 2 year old kid to say "suck my dick" (and that's the tamer stuff) is a good thing.

The joint investigation found safety concerns, the statement said.

Of course they did. I mean look at that fallen chair. That could kill somebody if they tripped on it!

While I agreee that the world's moral and ethical compasses lean more to the prudish side, the parents were repeatedly calling their child a pussy biatch, laughing in his face, and encouraging him to join a gang.  I think the face that that is OK to you speaks more about your moral compass than the world's.

I never said that it's okay...let me try this again. The blowback seems disproportionate. The reactions seem to have more in common with hysteria than with a reasonable, effective response.

While I think the behaviour that led to this is certainly questionable, it just doesn't seem to be "take the children away" material unless something else was going on.

What's happening seems like a shame reaction.

It's hard to imagine how someone like this could find difficulty fitting into the professional world. The System must be trying to keep them down or exclude them or something. Definitely everyone else's fault.

I don't think anyone is making that argument.

I think the point is sending armed gunmen to abduct said child is exponentially worse.

It's not the state's farking business.

I am going to guess that they investigated and found further questionable parenting techniques, other than teaching the kid to throw things and yell expletives while running around in a diaper.  Unless he learned it from Daddy with the only difference is daddy did it in his underwear holding a 40.

I do not care what color the child is, it should be given a chance in an environment where expletives are not learned before ABCs.

The standard where I live is imminent risk of harm to the child. Without knowing more than just what's on the video, I see no argument I can make to demonstrate risk of harm to remove the child. There's a lot we don't know that could lead family services stepping in, but from the video itself, I see nothing that meets that standard. That being said, it's pretty deplorable. There's a world of difference between a baby hearing their dad exclaim "Shiat!" after hitting his thumb with a hammer, and repeating it, and teaching a child that this is acceptable behavior.

Ultimately, this:

How is it any worse than klan kids or parents raising their kids in crazy-ass Bible-thumper households?

Short of physical abuse, neglect or extreme emotionally-scarring torment, do parents have a right to raise their kids as they see fit, or not?

I don't agree with this, but I don't agree with a lot of shiat parents do to their kids... should they all have their children removed?

As soon as he gets old enough to join a gang, and knock over the corner market. Then it's the state's farking business.
Pretty sure that's where this toddler is headed.

Well, it could be that the state agency did its due diligence and found evidence of negligence on the part of the household against the child and proceeded with legal action to remove the child from the home. Meanwhile the internet and media have latched on to the "cursing toddler" aspect of the story because it's salacious and that's all we are hearing about, so it just seems like it's an over-reaction. Or it's a legitimate over-reaction.

As a parent I... just do not know what to say.

I am not really shocked by this, you see it everyday.

I guess that I am just saddened by the fact that this kid is potentially destroyed before he even gets started.

It is more than just the swearing, it is the talking back, teaching him it is ok, and a whole host of other things..

So, it's okay for me to teach my kids that gays are bad and sinful and have an evil agenda to destroy marriage... or that science is of the devil and the world is only 6000 years old... as long as I teach them to say 'poo' instead of 'shiat' when referring to feces?

Klan kids?  It's the same level, and kids have been taken away from their parents for it.

Bible thumpers?  Depends.  Scrub your kid down with bleach and ammonia to get the devil's filth off of him?  Yeah, take the kids away.  Go to church 3 times per week and have bible study every Saturday?  Meh, not really an issue.

I used to live in a very racially mixed and immigrant dominated neighborhood of Detroit.  Whenever I would walk up to the corner store I'd pass a building with a stoop full of diaper wearing black toddlers who would always run inside screaming "white man!  white man!" when I passed by.  Then the mom would glare out the window.  Good times.
