HAT Forum: Parental Authority and Parental Responsibility

HAT Forum
Saturday 22 November 2014, 11:00-1:00
519 Church St., Meeting Room #304
Topic: Parental Authority and Parental Responsibility
Proposed by: Moses Klein
1.       What responsibilities do parents have to their children? What responsibilities does the larger society have? Do they conflict?
2.       In what ways have our society’s standards about child-raising changed in your lifetime? In your opinion are these changes for the better?
3.       Is corporal punishment ever acceptable? With what limits? Under what conditions should outside agencies intervene?
4.       Religious parents typically inculcate their children with their own beliefs. Is this acceptable? With what limitations, if any?
5.       Should parents have the right to refuse medical treatment on their kids’ behalf? On what basis?
