Just plain stupid!

I’m sorry but the older I get, the less tolerant of stupidity I am. It is baffling to me the levels of just plain stupid that are out there. Take this couple in Europe for example. They would only feed their new baby gluten-free, lactose-free diet giving the baby things like quinoa milk. Call the milk advisory board we have another impostor for them to prosecute. They never took him to a regular doctor only to a homeopathic doctor, so no one knew the baby was only nine and a half pounds at seven months old when he died. They said they thought he was gluten intolerant so they tried other things, none of which was taking him to a real doctor, or seeking out medical help even to his last days.
Look, I still believe that parents are the best advocate for their children and in most cases, I see parents, especially those of children with a special need, doing awesome things to get their kids all the support they require. What I can’t stand is to see is idiots who choose a ridiculous path of action. I am not saying that they needed to do everything a doctor would order but did you even bother to get the simple test which would determine if the kid was having the issue? I can’t understand why no one interceded on behalf of this child when I hear stories all the time of great parents getting their kids taken from them. There is a line in the 1989 Steve Martin movie Parenthood which Keanu Reeves character offers up to the mother of his girlfriend while explaining his upbringing. He says ” You need a license to buy a dog or drive a car, hell, you need a license to catch a fish, but they will let any (expletives here) be a father.” And I would add a mother too!
