My issue with this isn't just the views that the mother is instilling in her child, but the actual actions she is taking... Maybe preeching your beliefs to your children isn't abuse, but writing your prejudice views in permanent marker on your 7 year old is.[/b]
First of all, I think writing ANYTHING on your child in permanent marker, even if it's rainbows and butterflies, is stupid.
I don't know if taking the child away was the right thing to do here - but I agree that some action has to be taken. It is not criminal to teach your child things others don't agree with, but when you write things like that on a child that does not have the capacity to really understand the implications of those words is when a line is crossed. The child doesn't know what those ridiculous things mean, and doesn't know how to handle the possible backlash of people seeing those things written on her. The mother placed her child in immediate danger of physical harm, and that, imo, is wrong.
That sort of reminds me of the beginning of Die Hard With A Vengeance, when Bruce Willis was forced to stand in the middle of Brooklyn with an incredibly racist statement written on him.
