I agree with Jacinda Ardern, and glad to see Labour supporting the requirement to have all prospective parentsÂ licensedÂ and trained before they procreate:
Labour social development spokeswoman Jacinda Ardern said unqualified, unvetted babysitters were not the answer and not in the best interests of the children.
Totally agree with Jacinda on this one. Their smart proposal would see a dramatic decrease in the incidence of child abuse almost over night.
I wonder what we are to do about remedial training andÂ licensingÂ of existing parents outside of Labour’s proposed regime, after all it would not be in the “best interests of the children” to expect parents to be trained properly, especially those inÂ receiptÂ of a benefit.
