All you have to do is think about what is better for the child, which, essentially, the next generation of America. Would you rather the child suffer bad grades and fail in life, or have the parents though a few classes and the child succeed?

Tough question but answered yes. The bar would need to be set very high for it to be acceptable for the govt to dictate 'bad parents', Ie child is in imminent danger. I could see this as a requirement for CPS to release children back to their parents

Something needs to be done in order to the kids back on track and this could be just one of the solutions. The scary thought: could we fit all the parents who need help into the current facilities?

Hell No!!! Its funny how you automatically blame the parent for his troubles in school. Its more than likely the teacher's fault. Government needs to stay the hell out of the education system as it is. Abolish the Dept. Of Education.

who's to say exactly what "poor" parenting is, or the right way to parent a child. an athiest would say it's poor parenting to raise a child in a religion, a conservative could say its poor parenting to raise a child liberal etc etc

Wow. I'm shocked that so many people said no to this. Parenting classes seem like a great way to help the entire family. It's better than putting kids into foster care. Kids don't come with instructions. I think many "bad" parents are just misguided.

If it involves the child being abused then yes, but if the parents are not the problem then no

Those are the parents that would play hooky. But seriously, no. We already have CPS and they make some ridiculous/horrendous calls.

I would love to say "yes" but I really don't think it would make much of a difference. adults are usually set in their ways, especially if they refuse to relieve they're doing anything wrong

Courts would get involved after child welfare or juvenile justice gets involved. Poor grades are not neglect, there are plenty of great parents fighting with their kids to try harder in school. I'm one of them. Truancy IS neglect and delinquancy

The kids shouldn't b punished for their parents mistakes. When I'm an adult I want the people I'm working with to b educated.

Absolutely. In fact you should need a parental license before you even have kids. It's ridiculous the people who pass on spawn and do nothing only to repeat a cycle of ignorance and poverty.

The decision making process for something like that would take time and several professionals would have to be involved. It could get expensive. But, if the parents are informed there is a problem and they don't make any changes, maybe.

They have the right to call child protective services to investigate, the school doesn't have the right to order anything based on what little information they have.

Sadly, many Progressive agendas are based on a belief that "parents" are incompetent and ignorant. Only the leaders of the "village" are capable of making the correct choices for children AND adults

No but I wouldn't be against forced parenting classes BEFORE people have children. We need a license to drive and get married. Why not one to have children?
06/07/14 5:46 am
How would that even work? I mean I wanna say yes but putting it into practice would be a nightmare. People would get in trouble because of their outlandish parenting techniques. I think it would become an impossible existential endeavor.

I am not for forced parenting classes. But, this is an important topic concerning education. Early parental involvement (including reading to kids at an early age) and staying involved for 12 years is essential if we are too have a successful system.

Not only no but hell fûcking shît no.
Is there anything people don't want to sign over to the government? I'm just aghast at this. Do you people not realize the type of precedents that would be set if we did this sort of thing?

I think when were born out procreating parts should be "turned off" somehow. Then to be able to procreate you need to prove you're capable of raising a child. Don't argue with me, don't question me, don't even comment. This is a very very hard

I work with children in foster care and do therapeutic visits with these children and their parent(s). The children are in foster care usually because of neglect, abuse, etc. Parenting classes DO NOT work for many reasons. Each situation is unique

Who makes the judgement if a child is being affected by poor parenting?The child?Who is better positioned than the child. Therefore,according to a majority of teenagers, their parents poor parenting of no allowance, grounding, etc. is affecting them.
