A Ontario father has lost custody of his kids after a judge ruled against him using homeopathy to combat their autism. The two boys, aged nine and 10, suffer from severe autism spectrum disorder and are unable to speak, feed, or dress themselves. The children’s mother sought a court against her ex-husband from administering homeopathic treatments, and arguing he was not helping manage the boys autism. The 48-year old man will now see his kids three weekends of the month and shared holidays.
Are we okay with judges making parenting decisions?
