i'm not exactly sure what we've done to deserve this:
Press Release: Nigel Latta
I have been approached by the Prime Minister and asked if I would consider participating in a review of the Police and CYF processes around S 59 to see if the law is working as intended....
I see my role as first and foremost to look at the evidence and to ensure that the law does not result in good parents either being criminalised, or being needlessly subjected to investigations that are intrusive and/or traumatic. This is a responsibility I hold directly to the everyday mums and dads of New Zealand, and one that I take very seriously.
why couldn't we have that nice lady from that nanny programme on tv - no, i don't mean fran drescher, i mean the other one who comes into your house, gives you a few techniques on child discipline (none of which involve violence, incidentally), and within weeks, your little ones become very well-behaved. i reckon she could tell us if good parents were being needlessly victimised!
or if we couldn't get her, what about fran drescher? i'm sure she could do the job just as well.
