|SOURSE||INFORMATION||WHY I CHOSE IT|
|http://www.hughlafollette.com/papers/licensing.parents.pdf||“We require drivers to be licensed because driving an auto is an activity which is potentially harmful to others.”||I chose this information because it shows how driving can be harmful to others and then later in the article it says that bad parenting is also harmful to others, so why don’t we need a license for it?|
|http://www.childhelp.org/pages/statistics||Children are suffering from a hidden epidemic of child abuse and neglect. Every year 3.3 million reports of child abuse are made in the United States involving nearly 6 million children||I chose this because it shows the facts about child abuse in the United States|
|From time to time, people speculate about licensing parents. After all, you need a license to drive a car, fly an airplane, teach children or practice any number of other professions. So why shouldn’t you have to obtain a license for the most important job in the world||I chose this because I liked how the writer said being a parent is the most important job in the world because when you think about it, it is the most important.|
|http://bleedingheartlibertarians.com/2011/12/licensing-parents-2/||Would it prevent all bad parenting? No, but it would, I think, greatly reduce harmful parenting.||I chose this because it shows how making a law to have a license wouldn’t completely get rid of the problem, but it would help reduce the amount of bad parents|
|http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-17553210||A Department for Education spokesman said: “Unless there is good behaviour in schools, teachers cannot teach and students cannot learn.
|This quote shows how kids are acting rude to teachers. Earlier in the article it said that a bad life at home can affect a child when they are in public.|
|http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/family/teen-parent-affect-child.htm||The children often grow up with emotional and educational problems as well. Because teen parents are often too immature to know how to care for their children and may be easily frustrated by infant behavior, their children may become victims of neglect or abuse.||I chose this because is shows how teen pregnancy doesn’t just affect the teen, but also affects the child.|
|http://www.childhelp.org/pages/statistics||Children who experience child abuse & neglect are 59% more likely to be arrested as a juvenile, 28% more likely to be arrested as an adult, and 30% more likely to commit violent crime.||I chose this because it shows the statistics about the children who are abused.|
|http://www.childhelp.org/pages/statistics||About 30% of abused and neglected children will later abuse their own children, continuing the horrible cycle of abuse.||I also chose this information because it shows how there is a cycle of abuse|
|http://archives.drugabuse.gov/NIDA_Notes/NNVol13N2/exploring.html||As many as two-thirds of all people in treatment for drug abuse report that they were physically, sexually, or emotionally abused during childhood, research shows.||I chose this because it shows how abuse can lead to other bad things in life. Also how it happens to a lot of people.|
|http://kidshealth.org/parent/positive/talk/child_abuse.html#||Neglect is any action — or inaction — on the part of a caregiver that causes a child physical or emotional harm.||I chose this because it shows that physical abuse isn’t just what can harm a child.|
|It takes more than talk. It takes a sustained effort||I chose this because people think that just talking with the kid will help them, but it won’t. They need to do more and HELP the kids.|
|Requirements for licensure would include being a mature married couple who are economically independent with no criminal records or debilitating mental illnesses, and passing a basic course in parenting at a local community college.||This shows what the requirements would be if there would be a law and I thought these were pretty good.|
|http://www.lifeissues.net/writers/hab/hab_04parenting.html||Parental licensing attempts to take all risks out of child–bearing by eliminating “mistakes.”||This always happens to teens now a days so this law would help stop that and I picked it because it shows what they are trying to prevent|
|http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/stuck/200906/licensed-parent|| Yes, parenting is the world’s hardest job. So should parents be pre-tested and certified, like drivers and plumbers and college students?
|This shows how with other things you need to have a license so why not parenting?|

In this article shows both sides of the argument about having to have a license to have children. I think the writer makes good points and also show good understanding of the topic. The writer also refers to the article by Hugh LaFollette and talks about his thoughts on the article. Honestly I didn’t really agree with the entire thing he said, but he had a lot of good points.
Condrell, Kenneth N. “A License… to Parent?” Parenting Topics. N.p., n.d. Web. <http://www.fisher-price.com/en_Us/playtime/parenting/articlesandadvice/articledetail.html?article=tcm:169-17858>.
This blog post is about an event the writer saw and it talks about how seeing this made him think about the licensing of parents in a different way. The writer was at a movie and a mother and two children walked in and the mother was yelling at her children and not to mention also took him to a inappropriate movie with violence that even the writer and his wife had to look away at some parts. Seeing this the writer of the blog post had a different opinion on the parenting matter.
“National Child Abuse Statistics.” Child Help. N.p., n.d. Web. <http://www.childhelp.org/pages/statistics>.
This site just showed the statistics on child abuse and what kind of things children are dealing with these days. I liked how this site not only showed the graphs, but also showed where they got their information. This site was a lot of help on finding out what kinds of things parents will do to their kids. It also shows what people will do to stop this kind of abuse.
*”"Licensing Parents” by Hugh LaFollette.” Philosophically Speaking. N.p., 6 Oct. 2012. Web. <http://blog.lib.umn.edu/puch0022/myblog/>.
This is a blog and the writer just talks about his perspective on the journal/small book by Hugh LaFollette. When reading the comments about his perspective a lot of people disagreed with him and I still wonder what they didn’t like about it because they never really said what they didn’t like. The man that wrote this post wasn’t really sure on what he thought because he always switched whether he liked the idea of licensing parents or he didn’t.
LaFollette, Hugh. “Licensing Parents.” N.p., n.d. Web. <http://www.hughlafollette.com/papers/licensing.parents.pdf>.
This is the short book/journal by Hugh LaFollette and he talks about everything there is about child abuse and how people think there should be a law about parents having to have a license to be a parent. His point of view is really clear, but the language he uses is a little hard to follow. If I had to read a really good perspective of this topic I would defiantly choose this one.
