There Ain’t No Future/In England’s Dreaming Part 6

I almost have no words…it looks like Pre-Crime from Minority Report has arrived in England.

Listen to this quote from a linked article within the first…( http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2007/08/26/nbaby226.xml )

The Department of Health’s definition of what constitutes emotional abuse includes “conveying to children that they are worthless or inadequate” and says that “some level of emotional abuse is involved in all types of ill-treatment of a child, though it may occur alone”.

If that first is true, then my Pop must have been the worst kind of felon!

OK, I kid.  My father didn’t make that sort of talk systemic, but when I had done something wrong he let me know about it, but good.  If even talk is outlawed in regard to discipline, how, precisely, is one to disipline at all?
