How come in this country we need a license or permit to do just about everything besides have children? I mean come on. Think about it. Look at everything we need a license to do: drive a car build a shed on our own property remodel our house perform electrical repairs in our house practice law perform dentistry just about everything else you do or have hired done from the moment you wake till the second you fall asleep at night. spray hazardous chemicals So why dont we need a permit, license, certification, or any type of regulation on bringing another life form into this country? I think parenting should be under more scrutiny than anything listed above. I have a friend that just spent thousands to adopt a child after they found out they could not conceive themselves. I say we create regulations on child upbringing and then talk away children from those that are not licensed or permitted and place the children with deserving parents that are now spending thousands to adopt children they cannot have. I think the nation would be a lot better place, if the only people that were raising children were those that were fully capable of performing the task without driving over them.
