Look what came ‘across the pond’ from England!….
Their approach is to dock child government benefit of parents who fail to discipline their children and force parents to attend parenting classes.
We have these issues across the pond. As my loyal readers know, I too believe that parents should play an active role in their children’s education and that our current laws do not encourage that. (Our current laws simply ask parents to ‘advocate’ for their children and demand information and file complaints. They do not ask parents to ‘parent’ their children, get them to bed on time, feed them properly, find them a quiet place to do school work, etc., etc. etc.
The Brits have a proposal. Is this the way to go with it? An interesting read.
