Celebrities like Drew Barrymore and Macaulay Culkin actually divorced their parents by filing for “emancipation” in the courtroom. In other cases, it’s the government infringing on parental rights to homeschool their kids.
In fact, just this week Charisma magazine covered two stories that infringe on parental rights. Christian parents were jailed for denying kids “sex ed classes” in the public school system, and UK court ruled that Christianity is harmful to kids.
With the onslaught against parental rights in Europe, could the U.S. be next? The NRB is working to educate parents about their rights in a new documentary called “The Child: America’s Battle for the Next Generation.” The documentary will air on March 7 at 8 p.m. on the NRB Network.
“Parents and anyone concerned for the family will not want to miss The Child,” says NRB Network President and CEO Troy Miller. “I believe viewers will be shocked to learn about the threats to parental rights in our country and will walk away informed and empowered. We are blessed to broadcast such a well-produced and important program.”
The 30-minute documentary explores the threat to parental authority from excessive government involvement in child-rearing, education and other areas. Noteworthy is the fact that an 18-year-old homeschool student, Grace Tate, along with a production crew of youth aged 15 to 20, created The Child to take an in-depth look at how American law and government is impacting the parent-child bond.
Tate found her inspiration to create the documentary after researching the proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution to uphold parental rights and discovering pervasive attacks against the fundamental relationship between parents and children.
