A Mom Was Charged With Neglect…. for This?

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

Are you thinking about teaching your children a lesson about personal responsibility?

You might want to reconsider it, especially if you have nosy neighbors and live in Marion County, Tennessee.

According to the Times Free Press:

A 32-year-old Marion County, Tenn., mother faces an April court date on child neglect charges after deputies found her driving ahead of her young daughters as she made them walk miles to school on Valley View Highway…. The mother, Lisa Marie Palmer of Chicken Dave Road near Whitwell, told deputies her daughters were being punished for missing the bus, Marion County Sheriff Ronnie “Bo” Burnett said.

…When they got to the area where the girls were walking, Ladd and the other officer observed Palmer and the children about 50 yards — 150 feet — apart with Palmer in the car ahead of them, the report states. It “appeared as if she was driving ahead of the children and allowing them to walk and catch up to her vehicle and to proceed with that action until the children reached the school,” Ladd states in the report.

…”Temperatures were cold, and traffic was beginning to become heavy with citizens heading to work,” Ladd states. “Mrs. Palmer was in no position to reach her children safely in the event of an emergency.”

So it wasn’t enough that the mother was supervising their walk to school from her car- she had to be following the kids closer than their own shadows? This is why America’s children are so fragile by the time they leave for liberal colleges and universities….

Local governments should not be mandating helicopter parenting. Where did America’s backbone go?
