Not exactly a new trend, but definitely a disturbing one.
Remember the family who was indicted for their refusal to radiate their child?
And of course, if you refuse medication the schools can diagnose and medicate your child without your consent.
Children are property of the state in America. Get used to it - it's only going to get worse because the majority of people are weak, selfish, and
stupid. It's going to get worse, and worse, and worse, until people change themselves for the better.
My only consolation is that parents are so miserable these days (not all, but enough to perpetuate the downward spiral), the state would have to try
really hard to do a worse job of it.
For more outrages, good sir loam has this thread, chock-full of 'em.
