Putting our money where our mouth is on Children’s Rights.

Ash have called here for a ban on smoking in cars with under 16s in them. It’s a fair point: Do parents have a right to give their kids cancer? Does Irish society put the health of children ahead of the right of parents to tell the state to get stuffed and not tell them how to raise/abuse their kids?

One thought on “Putting our money where our mouth is on Children’s Rights.

  1. The answer is not obvious to me.

    IMHO, outside of a small group of extreme situations, Irish society/the state is less likely to do a good job of deciding what is good parenting in specific cases.

    Is passive smoking such an extreme case ? I tend to think not, but am open to persuasion.
