Big Mother

From Instapundit comes now the story of the pediatric check-up! At my kids' check-ups the nurse goes through a list of questions so far directed at me because the kids are young. Among them are how much milk do the kids drink a day, are the children properly restrained in car seats and boosters when I drive and do I have a gun in the house.
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.
This Massachussets kid also got asked about mommy's and daddy's drinking habits, whether they did illegal drugs, and has daddy ever done anything inappropriate.

Yeeeikes! There after us!

Were these the wimpiest parents in he world or what? I don't understand why they didn't simply march their children right out of the doctor's office when the INAPPROPRIATE interrogations began.

This is an outrageous travesty and I certainly hope parents scream loud and long about this. Of course the fact that they let these dr's. question their minor children without their consent (and in one case, apart from the parent) doesn't give me much confidence they'll make a stand.

WTF? It's so not the place of a pediatrician to ask most of those questions.
