Congratulations to Dr. Mark Vopat whose book Children’s Rights and Moral Parenting was recently re-released in paperback by Lexington Books. Dr. Vopat’s book offers a systematic treatment of a variety of issues involving the intersection of the rights of children and the moral responsibility of parents. The text presents a theory of the relationship between parents, children, and the state which can then be applied to the real life decisions that parents are often in the position to make on behalf of their children. In many instances, our current view of parental rights has granted parents far more discretion than is morally warranted. This conclusion is arrived at by carefully considering the unique status children have; socially, legally and morally in most western societies. Children’s Rights and Moral Parenting
