Parental Rights

Parental Rights

Family Research Council affirms that children belong first to their parents and families, not to their communities or governments. The primary responsibility and authority over a child’s moral upbringing, discipline, education, and health care lies with the child’s parent or guardian. Government should minimize its interference with the exercise of parental authority, except in cases of demonstrable abuse or neglect.
