Parenting centres, super nannys and databases....

22 Nov 2006 - LP

The Guardian reports that the Government is creating a new database containing the details of every child in England from birth to the age of 18. It is justified on grounds of better protection and for improved coordination among different bodies. This, like the previously announced parenting schools and super nannys, is a clear example of government interferring further into our daily lives. The recent initiatives show that the Governemnt does not trust parents to bring up well-behaved children and that they believe only heavy-handed methods will help to improve behaviour and protection.
