Some valid points there, I feel that health visitors need to make more visits then from what you have said, because parents who throw up their children with no manners or personal skills seem to be becoming the majority in so many areas at the moment.
I can't stand hearing, "oh its ok, i'll have another baby, won't have to work then for another 4 years." I really hope the government go ahead with their proposal of only supporting with benefits upto 3 children per household. I don't think thats wrong at all, if you are living off the state as your only source of income and having babies like there is no tomorrow, why should the support you beyond that number? without the benefits, would you be able to support them? no. Children will hopefully be brought into families that want them and want to be parents for more than just a ticket off work for a few years.
