Schools As Parents?

All societies have social ills of one kind or another but in New Zealand we seem to be advocating a system of remedy that ignores the core of a successful society- family and positive parenting. Child obesity is a problem? Schools can teach ‘healthy eating’. Children and youth have no respect for people or property? Schools can teach ‘life values’. Children arrive at school without having eaten breakfast? Schools can establish ‘breakfast clubs’. And so it goes on. When are we (the government) going to put the responsibility for curing these (and many other) ills firmly back where they should first be addressed? WITH PARENTS and in the family!!!
