We have to stop the pretence that every parent wants (or knows) the best for their child. It is simply not true, and the effects of parents' failures are felt throughout society, in anti-social behaviour, crime, drugs and alcohol, obesity and education standards, family breakdown, youth unemployment, unreasonable expectations (the X Factor effect), debt and credit and 'wanting it all now'. How people parent shouldn't be a matter of personal choice. There are good ways and bad ways, and we need to stop all this laissez-faire nonsense of not judging people. The taxpayer, after all, will be the one picking up the tab for their failures. This is a highly provocative treatise on family, society and social responsibility. Julia Hartley-Brewer sets out a strong case that demands a response, from parents and commentators alike, and is set to generate widespread debate.
