Re: Hmm

But sadly too many people seem to think parental responsibility is someone else's problem, and their effort ends with plonking the kid in front of the telly or a tablet and believing the nanny state will do all the work.

That is the proud end result of decades of work by successive governments to take away consequences of bad choices. Starting in 1911 (I believe) with the first National Insurance Act (that bankrupted many Friendly Societies by stealing their turf) and progressing through all sorts of "the State must do it because we won't let you because you won't choose to do it our way".
