This is the most ridiculous story I’ve heard in a long time….well, other than 90% of the political stories I read every day.
This mentality is exactly what’s wrong with our country. We’re spoiling our children. Spoiled kids grow up to be spoiled adults, and then they sue their parents. Good grief! These two should be fined for taking up the court’s time on this preposterous lawsuit! Infuriating!
Adult children’s ‘bad mothering’ lawsuit dismissed (h/t Drudge Report)
Chicago • Raised in a $1.5 million
Barrington Hills, Ill., home by their attorney father, two grown
children have spent the last two years pursuing a unique lawsuit against
their mom for “bad mothering” that alleges damages caused when she
failed to buy toys for one and sent another a birthday card he didn’t
The alleged offenses include failing to take
her daughter to a car show, telling her then 7-year-old son to buckle
his seat belt or she would contact police, “haggling” over the amount to
spend on party dresses and calling her daughter at midnight to ask that
she return home from celebrating homecoming.
Last week, at which point the court record
stood about a foot tall, an Illinois appeals court dismissed the case,
finding that none of the mother’s conduct was “extreme or outrageous.”
To rule in favor of her children, the court found, “could potentially
open the floodgates to subject family childrearing to … excessive
judicial scrutiny and interference.” Read more.
