Un bon parent est quelqu'un qui fait tout pour que son enfant réussisse dans la voie que ce dernier a choisi. Les notions d'amour, d'entraide et de solidarité sont, je pense, autant présentes en France qu'aux Etats-Unis.

Je ne pense pas qu'il y ait de bons ou de mauvais parents, tous les parents aiment leurs enfants quelque soit la situation. Je veux dire par là qu'une personne alcoolique peut battre ses enfants car elle n'est pas dans un état normal mais ce n'est pas pour autant qu'elle n'aime pas ses enfants. Je pense que c'est un sujet trés délicat où il est difficile de porter un jugement.

I once read an article in a magazine such as Discover or Popular Science a while back that discussed a future of children designed by their parents, and it also touched upon the idea of regulating who can become parents or not in the case of population control (and idea that is not that far-fetched, if you look at China). Theoretically, there would be a bureau of some sort in charge of this, and if you wanted to have a child, you had to be 1) economically able to support a child, 2) pass various psychological exams and 3) also have your own genes looked at to see if you would pass on any bad diseases or behaviors. What are reactions to this??

What do the french think about homosexual parents? I found an article in the Figaro that stated that there are 100,000 homosexual families in France. Are the gay mariage laws strict in France compared to other countries?
