I believe it would benefit society as a whole if parenting skills became part of the curriculum for all children – especially those who come from broken or dysfunctional families.
So often these problems are self-perpetuating through several generations because the concept of the family unit no longer exists – not does the concept of community, especially in towns and cities.
We blithely believe that parenting skills come naturally – they do not. Young people need help and examples they can us for comparison to measure themselves against, and if those examples are missing from their own lives, they are irreparably handicapped; thus becoming innocent fodder for social services and that great evil – forced adoption.
The child welfare items that should be right on your radar:
- Child abuse scandal whistleblower to create advice chatbot
- Council refuses to answer questions on trafficked children ‘missing’ from their care
- Research: divorce less harmful to children if it takes place earlier in childhood
