an unmoving piece of predjudice and stupid millstone stuff
A young child asked this question on ANSWERS - yahoo, when his mother threatened to not feed him unless he picked up his clothes.
Is it illegal for a mother to not feed a child? .
My answer : Yes , you could send her to jail . You have all that power,WOW so choose well .
She loves you no doubt because she would happily go to jail if you would only listen and do what she asked you first time long time ago ( remember she asked you .....times before she became wrathful ). - Look TOO at what she is prepared to do to train you before she dies to live reasonably with someone else . She loves you and love threatens mate because if you don't listen - you'll live alone. Not easy though is it to be told what to do -
Forget being the legal eagle or you'll spend your life talking about how everyone else but you is breaking the law all the time.
Don't worry-- hard work is good for you ( gets easier the more you practice) because it teaches you what is really good ( honoring your parents ) and conversely ( what bullsh talk is all about - you don't get this reality therapy on TV ) --AND not best of all but with some inspiration for you -it will all be over by the time your 18.
By that time hopefully you will have learned that she's RIGHT and you are WRONG .
