As our nation continues to plunge headlong toward a godless abyss, God-fearing parents are faced with some tough decisions.

Some of these decisions could result in your family being visited by the local Child Protective Services (CPS). What are your legal rights as a parent? How do you utilize your relationship with the government? Our guest, Michael Farris helps us answer these questions.
Our guest today is Michael Farris. Michael Farris is president of ParentalRights.org and founding president of Patrick Henry College. He is also the author of more than a dozen books.
Understanding Your Parental Rights
In our work with Shepherds Hill Academy, we work regularly with families that have had the Child Protective Services involved in their home. Often when I ask parents what they fear most about being a parent today, I am met with the answer: “I’m afraid I’ll go to jail for enforcing discipline in my home.” Michael helps us work through similar fears that parents may have. Together we discuss:
- Why ParentalRights.org can be a viable tool for your family
- Is the fear of investigation by CPS a rational one
- What is considered probable cause for a family to be investigated
- The role common sense plays in parenting
- How parents should respond if the CPS becomes involved
- How CPS has legal access to your kid if he/she attends public schools
