TOMS RIVER, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) – The verdict is in: a mom’s decision to take her 11-year-old daughter to a Pink concert isn’t evidence of bad parenting.
That’s the ruling recently issued by a family court judge in southern New Jersey.
NJ.com reports the girl’s parents are divorced, and her father accused his ex-wife of abusing her parental discretion by taking their daughter to the December 2013 concert at the Prudential Center in Newark.
But in a 37-page decision that contained a brief history of rock-and-roll and a commentary on the increasing use of judges as referees for warring divorced parents, state Superior Court Judge Lawrence Jones rejected the complaint.
Jones said Pink may have some suggestive moves and lyrics, but she’s an artist whose works aren’t necessarily inappropriate for preteens.
