Too young to care

We received Erich's identification documents in the mail recently. One of the more funny pieces of identification was his Care card (provincial health insurance) which, notably, asks the bearer of the card for his signature. How exactly is a 6 week old baby supposed to sign his own Care card is beyond my comprehension. :)

Well in fairness, there is an attached sheet that notes that a "spouse, guardian or other responsible adult" should sign the card for someone who is unable to do so. Whatever happened to the term "parent"? Has it become the latest victim of political correctness?
