Many of us may feel like we didn’t get something from our parents. While most often our mothers and fathers, when present, did the best they could there are areas where they fell short. Being of the human species it’s very unlikely that we will do everything right. Parenthood is no exception to this. With our own children we raise them the best we know how and hope that they grow up to be contributing members of society. We hope that they will see that while we weren’t perfect we gave it — we gave them our all. And, if times continue to be anything like they are now we can also hope they won’t slap us with a lawsuit and a list of demands when they become adults.

That’s just what Bernard Anderson Bey did.  Although we don’t know what his upbringing was like, at the age of 32 he is suing his parents for neglect.

“A 32-year-old homeless man is suing his parents for neglect, demanding that they sell their tiny share of a Brooklyn house to finance two Domino’s Pizza stores, the New York Post reports. The franchises will provide a lifestyle upgrade, he reasoned. “I feel unloved and abandoned,” he told the Post.”

School Yoga Program Leads to Parents’ Lawsuit

In what some are calling a “breach of public trust,” a San Diego-area school district is being sued for its student yoga programs claiming it is not in compliance with the California constitution’s right to religious freedom.

On Wednesday, The National Center for Law and Policy filed suit on behalf of parents, Stephen and Jennifer Sedlock, whose children are students in the Encinitas Union School District. The yoga program began in the area last fall and is offered during physical education classes. Students have the choice of opting out.

The suit views the program as “inherently and pervasively religious” as the foundation funding the program, the Jois Foundation, is considered a religious organization. However, the group claims their focus is on educating children, not pressing religion on them. School district Superintendent Timothy Baird sees no reason for the suit.

“We have not stripped religion out of it. We never put religion in it,” Baird said. “What we took out were cultural connections, so we don’t use Sanskrit words. But basically what you have kids doing is stretching, moving, breathing. That’s not religious.”

The lawsuit aims to suspend the program indefinitely and “restore traditional physical education to the district.”
