      Some parents need help but it should not come from the Goverment help should come from the health vistor as that is what she is there for

      Goverment should stay out of it

      I raised my four kids with out the Goverments help and the grow up fine

      I agree with Fiona, there is already things in place for help if you need it. When I was young we didn't have anything like this for our parents and we all turned out fine. I do feel that they are trying to add things in where things are not needed now and forgetting about the things that do need taking care of.
