Mom accused of burning 'wimp' into child

MOUNDSVILLE, W.Va. - A West Virginia mother faces charges after being accused of burning the word "wimp" into her 6-year-old daughter's neck.

Tammy Smith is charged with five counts of child abuse and of malicious assault, all felonies.

Moundsville Police Chief Jim Kudlak said Saturday that the child told police that her mother used a cigarette to burn her. Smith's daughter told authorities that her mother burned her because she was angered that the girl tripped and fell

I'm beginning to think that you should have to go through a qualification program before you can have children. I know that sounds Nazi-like. It just breaks my heart when I read stories like this.



This only strengthens the argument that gays should be allowed to adopt. Anyone who adopts has to go through a rigorous screening process. Us adoptive parent are the only parents who must qualify first.

It would be extremely difficult to totally regulate some sort of parental criteria. Some people simply do not make decent parents. It is that simple. It is not an age thing, or just mere educational thing or a wealth thing that makes good parents.



The only thing that can be done is sets the rules that all live by as far as how such activity will be dealt with if anyone abuses a child.

If it weren't for the fact that I don't think the government should be allowed to interfere in procreation, I agree.

Stupid, isn't it. A loving gay couple can't adopt or foster a child, but a 'straight' couple who are just looking for money or household help, can.

Even a straight couple trying to adopt for the wrong reasons will probably be weeded out. It depends on how good a job the social worker does with the home study.
