The next time you carry your kid to the doctors office in the US, especially Ma., you might want to be sure you stay at your kids side the entire time. Doctors are being told to ignore ethics, even legal issues to interrogate children about certain subjects.

Parents can no longer be trusted.

What about doctor patient privilege?

Whoa. That's soooo wrong.

Thank god I live in Arizona and not the totalitarian state of Massachusetts. That is so more BS then one should stand for.

I would sue the piss out of that doctor. Wayyyyyy too much BS going on there. I would support the legislation to stop that.

I would be beyond furious to hear of something like that happening to my children.

Holy mackerel! That is just so wrong on so many levels. What the heck is wrong with this country?

before ya'll get too wound up, consider the source. this is an editorial, written by a guy who was fired from 7 talk radio stations in less than 7 years...read more about the illustrious michael graham...

(he used to be here in richmond, where i met him. he's very entertaining, to say the least...)

I'd take that as a recommendation of good character, considering the scumbag propagandists that run the media nowadays. :)

I've never allowed my kids private time with a doctor .. I trust no one with my kids (yes I'm over protective and proud of it). If a doctor did this to one of my kids I'd be outraged and they'd have to get future answers from my attorney!

Asking those questions...perfectly reasonable and a good pediatrician would (about guns, alcohol, drugs in the house). Passing info onto the police...I'm not so sure there.

Also, note that the author had the time to link the Red Sox, but while quoting the AAP was too lazy to include the link to the quote. Seems to me if the quote wasn't taken out of context he'd be more than happy to point out the offending statement.

Gee, I must have a terrible doctor; he's never asked our kids anything like this.

because of how premature my son was he was "assigned" a pediatrician till he's 18 and she is awesome but even in Canada I wouldn't leave my child alone with the doctor...

Actually, they are mandated reporters. They have no choice but to report any suspected abuse (which can include weapons within access of the child or using drugs and/or alcohol in the child's presence).

Ummm, being a pediatrician, I don't think you are exactly right there...

Perhaps different laws apply in your state, but I believe physicians in California are mandated reporters of child abuse. I suppose I could be wrong... any elaboration on your statement?

But there's a difference in asking/reporting if there's suspicion of abuse/neglect and simply prying for whatever potential dirt they can find.

Btw, the quote about ignoring the law was taken from a study of adolescents, not small children, if that makes any difference.

No, I definitely agree there. If a pediatrician suspects child abuse, he/she is mandated to report it to CPS. The disagreement comes from some established idea that a loaded gun in the house (while being stupid) constitutes abuse.

Sorry, I guess I wasn't really clear given the general nature of the discussion. What I was trying to add parenthetically was that, depending on the circumstances, having loaded weapons within access of children can possibly constitute a form of "abuse" under the law.

ETA: at least in California

It's interesting. That last line does sound like strong language, and I wonder what laws were in mind when this was stated. Still, how is a statement from 1993 news?
