In the last year, we’ve seen a great number of things we’d have once considered child abuse going mainstream.
- If I had told my pediatrician a year ago that I homeschool, and that that homeschooling consists of putting my kindergarten student in front of a screen for seven hours a day while I do other work, I would have received a CPS visit.
- If I had told my pediatrician a year ago that I make my children aged two and over wear masks made of cloth because I am afraid of a virus that has killed almost no children in America, I would have received a CPS visit.
- Locking a child alone for two weeks because of possible exposure to a virus that has killed almost no children or few individuals in their parents’ age range in America, I would have received a CPS visit.
Parents are being told by public health that when their kids are dismissed from school because a classmate has tested positive, they must quarantine the child *alone* in a separate room for 14 days — even small children, even those who are asymptomatic.https://t.co/PgeO1cN7or

Had parents done any of this during normal times, they’d have received a call from a government agency. So why are we allowing government agencies to carry on this abuse for a full year?
