6-year-old girl was committed to mental health facility without parent consent

A 6-year-old Florida girl was committed for two days to a mental health facility without her mother’s consent after allegedly throwing a temper tantrum at school, an attorney for the family said.

The child was allegedly given anti-psychotic medications at the center, also without the permission of her mother.

State sanctioned child abuse.

…And quite frankly, if you can’t handle a six year old’s temper tanturm you have no business working around children. Period.

  1. A six year old? Really? Crap, what a state schools are in. If she’d brought a gun to school, I can see evaluating her, but not treatments and meds without parent permission. But a temper-tantrum? Ugh. What, was she becoming the Hulk? (grumble, grumble…)
