I really do, for the most part, try no to tell other people how to raise their kids. But there are some situations where I can't keep quiet. A woman in Iowa was trying to buy a wedding dress. As we all know wedding dresses tend to be outrageously expensive. She paid for part of the dress and then offered her son as collateral
for the balance. (I'm not sure whether it is better or worse that she apparently offered up only one of her two children.) She has been charged with sale of an individual, which is thankfully illegal in the US.
