    Ummmm...........probably their MEDICAL degrees, and the fact that because they see so many children in a month, not only do they understand their medical issues, but they also understand the psychology of a child BETTER (generally) than their parents do.

    They are taking the wrong angle by criminalizing the doctor for communicating in their patients' best interest.

    They should instead try to pass a law to prohibit insurance companies from ever using such knowledge against their members...

    Yeah........leaving it all to the parents is what makes everything better.........stuff like sexting, "smash or pass" as well as internet bullying.

    No. Most parents today are too busy with their lives to pay attention to their kids.

    It's not like parenting is not up to the parents...

    Pediatricians need to be able to communicate openly about health and safety issues without fear of losing their license to practice. It's a backward way of approaching the fear of insurance companies. Too bad none of the the politicians have the cajones to do the right thing here and stand up to THEM and leave the doctors alone.





    Supporters of the Florida bill, including the National Rifle Association (NRA), say they want to stop doctors from invading their privacy, and are concerned the information may be used against them by insurance companies.

    Making it illegal to counsel parents on the possible ramifications of guns in the home isn't the smartest thing. I didn't say the parents didn't have to follow, I just said that the doctors know more about kids than most parents, and can tell them not only what is wrong with the child, but also other things to be aware of.

    Refusing knowledge is just plain stupid.

    Another "small government conservative" law that makes it a crime for a doctor to ask if there are guns at home...

    Gotta love those "small government" conservatives...
