I check my son's Facebook almost as often as I check mine. If I see someone on his friends that I don't know, they get removed. His cell phone, which I pay for, is checked often. I am one of those parents that won't activate the texting abilities on his phone because then he could send and receive messages that just aren't right for a kid his age. If all of this makes me a bad mom that won't allow secrets, then so be it. I would rather my children view me as overprotective momma than the mom that didn't care enough to protect them from their own silly mistakes. We live in a tough world. 30 years ago, sneaking out to go to a party was kind of risky. You might get stopped by the cops or get grounded. These days, the outcome can be so much worse. The cost of a child's mistake has increased. I don't want my children to pay that price.
There have been persistent references to Murphy's law associating it with the laws of thermodynamics from early on (see the quotation from Anne Roe's book above).  In particular, Murphy's law is often cited as a form of the second law of thermodynamics (the law of entropy) because both are predicting a tendency to a more disorganised state.  Atanu Chatterjee investigated this idea by formally stating Murphy's law in mathematical terms. Chatterjee found that Murphy's law so stated could be disproved using the principle of least action . 
The report focuses on the role of the independent monitoring mechanism in Article 33, which will oversee the implementation process. The report provides a variety of suggestions and examples of good practice, which will be useful as Ireland prepares to ratify the CRPD. The monitoring mechanism in the CRPD is a unique innovation among human rights treaties, which makes its correct implementation both a challenge and extremely worthwhile. The full report can be downloaded as a PDF here and in a machine readable version . More information on the launch can be found on the IHREC website .
