It would help put an end to the ‘blame’ culture growing in this country. Children have realised that committing offences carry no real deterrent as they know the parents or guardians will be held to account for them. Teach children that for their actions there will be consequences and enforce it accordingly
Remove all the knee jerk legislation introduced by the previous Govt, especially the legislation which holds parents responsible for the actions of the children and prosecutes and imprisons parents if the children do not behave. Controversial ideal I know but PUNISH THE CHILD for what they do.
