Letter: Common sense for child centers

I  find the response to the Fargo City Commission putting health department recommendations into an ordinance for licensed child care centers to be on the humorous side. According to former commissioner candidate Tony Gehrig (letter, July 21), this is placing a wedge between a family and their child care provider.

I seriously question how many parents when selecting a child care provider would request that their children be fed high-sugar juices, be allowed no physical activity and be allowed to spend their time in front of an electronic device. These are all thoughtful aspects, are coming from the experts and will only benefit families and children.

This is one of those instances when ideology seems to trump common sense.
