I see what you are saying about the parents' rights vs. childrens' rights. But I also can see where it all can be taken too far and that is what scares me personally. I already do many things that are against what the government and society in general believes. I home birth in a state where there is no legal protection for midwives, I do not vaccinate, I homeschool, we share a family bed, etc... What concerns me is that the signing of this treaty as I understand it could actually end up risking the lives and health (both mentally, emotionally, and physically) of my children. One of the questions in your list was about refusing medical treatment and this one means a lot to me. I treat MOST things here at home with natural things such as diet, herbs, homeopathics, etc... If my children to ever be diagnosed with cancer, I would NOT allow them to receive chemo or radiation, but instead would treat it naturally also. There have already been cases invovling exactly this, where even the child did not want to endure these dangerous treatments either, but the parents were taken to court and FORCED to FORCE them onto the child. This is an example of the government takeing away teh rights of both parent and child. And this could happen many times over with many other situations if this treaty is signed (I believe).
I have also heard stories such as this one where a 13 year old girl was caught doing drugs and was grounded (not spanked or otherwise harshly punished) and she, with the help of the state, took her parents to court over it and got herself removed from the home and put into foster care.
I also wanted to mention that I am a Christian yet I DO NOT believe that I OWN my children. I also do not know of any other Christians that think that way. I do believe that I know my children best and that NO ONE else can give them what I can give them or knows better what they need or do not need. I have very little trust in our government and absolutley DO NOT want them having any say in how I should raise and care for these children I have been blessed with. Their motives would never be out of LOVE for my child. I do not even believe that they would ever truly be motivated by what is BEST for the child as they might say they are. Look at vaccines, food production, etc... They are primarily motivated by money and power even if it means much harm being done to our children and our world...but that is a WHOLE other subject! :P
