Student’s lawsuit against parents for support loses first round in NJ court

New Jersey Supreme Court Judge Bogaard isn’t buying a teenagers claims of abuse by her parents as he upheld the role of the parents at last weeks court proceedings in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey

How did we get to this point in society where children sue their own parents because they see rules and curfews as personal violations and household chores as abusive?
The Judge comes down hard on this girl’s behavior, and the teens lawyer points blame at the parents.

But what about the Court and its Judges. whose conduct  fuels family conflict?
This kid, and her parents for that matter, are products of a generation of Family Court Judges who have been over empowering children beyond their “evolving capacities” and violating Parental Rights since the introduction of the U.N Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989.  The UN Convention on the rights of the child ( UNCRC ) is an  international treaty focused on promoting the rights of children and seeking to give children priority in the implementation of governmental measures.
It marked  a significant departure from the American concept of the relationship between state and child.

The UNCRC , leaving too much for interpretation,  conflicts with the right of parents to raise their children, which is why,
every country, except the United States and Somalia, have had it ratified.

So, we should not be surprised at a teenagers enormous sense of entitlement nor her disrespect for authority when our Family Court system has been fostering both for years.

In the least, this case should serve as a reminder of the importance of preserving the family structure and the risks associated with government determining the “best interest” of our children.
