Doctors interrogate children about parents' behavior

  • (NaturalNews) Encouraged by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), pediatricians across the United States have begun questioning children about their parents' habits, in some cases even filing police reports based on this information, according to an opinion article published in the Boston Herald.

    Article author Michael Graham recounts that his own children were asked by their doctor whether their parents used drugs and alcohol, owned guns, or were abusive. The doctor did not seek parental permission before asking the questions, nor did he inform them that they were being asked; Graham and his wife found out only after their children came home from the visits.

    "The doctor wanted to know how much you and mom drink, and if I think it's too much," Graham reports his daughter saying. "She asked if you two did drugs, or if there are drugs in the house. The doctor wanted to know how we get along. And if, well, Daddy, if you made me feel uncomfortable."

    Graham also reports the case of an Uxbridge, Massachusetts man who had his legal gun ownership reported to the police by his daughter's doctor. The doctor filed a police report after asking the 5-year-old girl if her father owned a gun, then following up with questions to her and her mother about the type and number of the weapons.

    Graham blames the trend on guidelines issued by the AAP, which classifies parents as "persons of interest" and encourages doctors to ask children questions in order to uncover inappropriate or illegal behavior.

    "The paranoia over parents is so strong that the AAP encourages doctors to ignore 'legal barriers and deference to parental involvement' and shake the children down for all the inside information they can get," Graham writes.

    According to Graham, anti-gun advocacy by pediatricians is widespread enough that "some states are considering legislation to stop it."

    "What this interrogation of children demonstrates," added consumer health advocate Mike Adams, "is just how deeply the medical establishment now believes it has total authority over the lives of patients. This kind of behavior is arrogant, outrageous and should be outlawed," Adams said.

  • ChantCD don't you think it to be a good way to know if a child is abused by an alcholic parent or step parent.
    many many children in the world are abused sometimes in the basement of their parents' house.
    in my country some girls are raped by their fathers and many children are beaten by step-parents.BUT under the excuse of "this is a private/personal issue","mind your own business" and so on,they cover up they crimes and continue to rape/beat/abuse their innocent children.
    remember that Luther,hitler and many other sociopaths had  awful childhoods!

  • I see your point Spouse. However, I do not think this is behind all of their questioning. Many of the healthcare providers are "useful idiots" they may have good intentions, but the people behind this do not.
    There is and has been a move to take away the rights of parents. It will be so with Barack in America as soon as he signs, and he will do so, the Bill of Children's rights with the U.N.
    I say it again, read Orwell's 1984. A sobering part is when Winston's neighbor-a regular party man and kool-aid drinker for Big Brother- is turned in for torture by his own children.
    Remeber Hitler's youth? Well, get ready.
