Maybe we should pass a law that says everyone will be healthy, wealthy and wise?

What a ray of hope! First, the article mentions that both parties were oppposed and did not want to 'legislate common sense'- hopefully this mentality will prevail elsewhere in voting.
Second, the parents are NOT suing anyone!! Appears they have a legal claim, but have taken a more constructive approach to ensure, at least via awareness, that this could have been prevented. Good luck with your little one...thoughts and prayers your way. You are setting a great example in your approach to this.

The pictures of this little boys hands are heartbreaking and he will endure a lifetime of anguish. For those that find this a laughing matter or add sarcasm to what the parents intent was should be ashamed. The parents intent was to provide a criterion in which licensed family daycare providers could follow to ensure another child didnt have to go through the pain and anguish that this little boy did and will continue to go through. The current guidelines state children can go out and play weather permitting obviously weather permitting to one person is not weather permitting to another. This is something that could have been prevented especially if there was a guideline in place. Schools have guidelines they follow, why should a licensed daycare provider not have a guideline in which they follow? Some say "why regulate common sense"? Are there laws in place that try to prevent people from drinking and driving, yes, is that common sense? As a licensed home family daycare provider, I do understand how many rules and regulations we have to follow; however lets not forget that this was an innocent little boy that received frostbite to nine of his fingers because the provider felt the weather was permitting. My thoughts and prayers go out to this little boy and the family.
