Lucia Government undermining the family

Bob McCoskrie of Family First has written a fantastic article for today's Dominion Post, titled Spare the respect, spoil the children, featured on page B7 opposite the editorial and letters page. It has an unfortunate picture right next to it of a dad with a boy over his knee while mum and daughter look on - but that's ok - it'll get the attention of the Dom Post readers and therefore will be widely read.

My favourite paragraph is this one:
The huge irony is that the more the state undermines the authority of parents, the less responsibility parents will take for their children. If the Government wants parents to be responsible parents, it must first respect their authority.

The words "parents", "respect" and "authority" in close proximity to one another will get a whole bunch of ideologues in Cindy Kiro's office choking on their coffees! But really, that is the crux of the matter. The more the Government works to undermine the family and family autonomy and authority over their children, the worse society as a whole will become. Is becoming. Has become.

You mean their low fat, de-caf Latte's. Such urban liberals will probably never understand what being a parent is like, most probably have no desire to be parents. The system is the only thing they think can save children from their parents, what a joke.
