McDonald’s suit over Happy Meal toys by California mom Monet Parham new low in responsible parenting
No one forced Parham to take her daughters to McDonald’s, buy them that particular menu item, and sit by as they ate every last French fry in the bag (if they did).

In one pleading, Knopf’s attorney, John P. Runde of Wausau, Wisc., reached the heights of chutzpah, suggesting the child’s parents helped
cause his injuries by trying to “find out for sure” who he was involved with rather than preventing him from having continued contacts with her. More.
