theres an on going debate in england on whether parenting classes should be made compulsery for parents (a bbc show was discussing it this morning). I don't know what to make of it. there are a hell of a lot of people out there that would benefit from this (i used to work for the admin team in social services), and i would actually send nearly everyone in my extended family to them. thusfar the advice the government are giving out is common sense:

Read to your child for 15 minutes
Play with your child on the floor for 10 minutes
Talk with your child for 20 minutes with the television off
Adopt positive attitudes towards your child and praise them frequently
Give your child a nutritious diet


however theres simply no shortage of parents that don't do this. a head teacher on the show said that bad parenting is the reason to blame for high teenage pregnancy, youth violence, declining standards of behaviour/manners, etc

there is also the argument that the government should not interfere in the way parents bring their children up and the nanny state has no right to send people to parenting classes.

some people are arguing that only working class parents should be sent to them not middle class parents. but is there any proof that working class parents and lone parents are any worse?

why not teach kids about parenting in school BEFORE they have any children?

Probably won't help Parents' morale when their own kids are telling them how they're supposed to be raised! :lol:



Maybe a critically acclaimed mini-series covering these basic parenting techniques could be released on TV? In between propaganda and desensitising it might help to have something beneficial on.
