再说《美国幼儿园要求为婴儿胎记开具证明的启示》

黄安年文 黄安年的博客/2007年10月11日发布

(按:《美国幼儿园要求为婴儿胎记开具证明的启示》一文2006年3月11日首发在学术交流网美国问题观察栏目。黄安年的博客2007年3月15日发布,并加按语:三保护的法制意识给我们很多启发。权益保护不是一句空话,为婴儿胎记开具证明告诉我们很多很多。)

**********************************************

一般说来,新生婴儿的胎记人人皆有,只是部位不同,有的在屁股上,也有在脸上的,有的几年后就慢满地消失,有的则若干年后还有印记,不管怎么说,谁也不会在意要有个证明是否有胎记并在那里的问题,所以对于新生婴儿的胎记往往医院或者家长并不留意要开具专门的证明。现在好了,最近位于190 Harries Road, Bedford Hills, NY 10507的BedfordDiscovery School(Website: BedfordDiscoverySchool.com)向全体婴儿家长发了一封正式的信件,要求为婴儿的胎记开具出生地医院的证明,证明必须包括婴儿胎记所在部位的图形。并说这样做是为了保护家长,保护教师,保护你们的孩子

在一个法制社会的美国,法制观点已经细化到这种程度,我们是否具有这样的法制意识呢?看来加强法制意识是需要一点一滴地做起的。

下面是该学校给家长信的全文:

Dear Parent,

As We are sure ofyour awareness that Mongolian spots are not an uncommon appearance on children.Our teachers have noticed them on your child. To the uneducated eye, it is veryeasy to mistake Mongolian spots for bruises. It is important to avoid anymisinterpretation that these spots may be an indication of child abuse.

When present on achild, we are required to have a physician provide us with documentationconfirming that these are indeed Mongolian spots. The documentation mustinclude a mapping of the location of all spots on your childs body.

We thank you forunderstanding that our purpose is to protect you, our teachers, and most of allyour child, from any misinterpretation that could otherwise arise from yourchilds Mongolian spots.
