How Will the Parental Rights Amendment Affect Me as a Parent?

The Parental Rights Amendment will ensure that our country's pre-Troxel interpretation of parental rights—that parents have a fundamental interest in directing the upbringing and education of their children and a right to the care, custody and management of their children—will become an explicit constitutional right, superior to the laws of every state and treaty. In other words, it will ensure that your right to parent is treated as a right and not taken away without compelling government interest.
