Read this story from today's Detroit News about this Michigan mom who allowed less than a handful of other moms to drop of their kids at her house to wait to be picked up by the school bus.
The state's Department of Human Services has told her to stop allowing this or she will face fines and possible jail. The attribute the state's childcare law as the source of their authority to do this.
Is this too much? Is it a prime example of a law having unintended consequences?
Am I missing something here? This mom is being a mom. Shouldn't that be affirmed by the state of Michigan rather than threatened?
