Normally they are called parents. What is government trying to do?
I don’t know how this can even fiscally practical. Basically, just birthing a child gets you a CPS case.
This is probably the most terrifying thing I have read. That it is even being proposed is frightening.
Scotland has a greater reliance on welfare than England. They’re trying to simplify matters by simply assigning a social worker from birth. Unfortunately, it also assumes that every child is a ward of the state from birth and that all parents are incapable of acting without government supervision.
This is one step short of taking children from birth to live in state institutions.
