Do you have children?

People who are parents often try to make claims to authority over people who aren’t parents by saying, “Do you have children?” I think a better question would be, “Do you have responsibility for children?”

I am a Godparent, uncle, school governor and director of a company limited by guarantee that runs youth projects. In the case of the latter two, I have more responsibility than the average parent as I could face charges like corporate manslaughter if a child died under my watch, where as many parents commit involuntary infanticide without charge all too often.

  1. How often is ‘all too often’?

    This is a serious issue you are reporting, but the fact you hide behind weasel words instead of presenting accurate data on involuntary infanticide only serves to damage your reputation.
