I guess we've come full-circle.
Up until I was 4 years old we lived next door to a family that fed its children like that. Back then you did not interfere with how other people raised their children. Years later my mother told me how she regretted not calling Child Protective Services as she watched a bright-eyed, beautiful foster child degenerate into a sunken cheeked, dull-eyed sick little girl under their care. If it had been the 80s and not the 60s she would have turned them in. I guess we're back to not turning people in. Or maybe CPS wouldn't consider it child abuse anymore?
