My son is 30. He was raised by a very protective Dad. That said, he was allowed lots of latitude, including walking home from school.
He also trained at our dojo with mostly law enforcement and military folks from age 9. When he was 12, he got his arm broken at Black Belt class...by me. It was an accident in a close combat drill.
Based on the knee jerk BS from CPS and the police in the article, I'd be in jail and even worse, separated from my boy.
At this point, I'm looking for the exit....
