We have all wagged our imaginary fingers at the feckless, inadequate, hopeless or just plain bad parents who fail to instil the most basic notions of acceptable behaviour in their offspring. There is, however, no definitive guidance on what parents should do to get the basics right. Consequently, whilst we have rules governing most areas of our lives, we have nothing for the single most crucial one - raising children. When parents fail to do their job properly, they often leave a trail of devastation that can stretch through generations, leaving unhappiness and misery in its wake.In this extraordinary polemic, Julia Hartley-Brewer argues that how people parent shouldn't be a matter of personal choice. The taxpayer, after all, will be the one picking up the tab when parents fail. She demonstrates just how bad the problem is, and how much it is costing us socially and financially as a nation, but also looks at ways we can prevent such issues before they arise, rather than just throw money at them when the damage has already been done. Blame the Parents argues that the parenting of every single child should matter to all of us because everyone pays the price when parents fail to do their job properly. Provocations is a groundbreaking new series of short polemics composed by some of the most intriguing voices in contemporary culture. Never less than sharp, intelligent and controversial Provocations is a major new contribution to some of the most vital discussions in society today.
