Having heard the early morning news on the Howard report on the findings on sending children to prison and care homes in general, That Jersey rates 80 per cent higher above 20 per cent in the U.K.In finding so many faults here.Admittely we can learn some. Praise was given to our own homegrown Island's Parish hall system. Which has been good in disiplining youngsters in most and many cases.Saving a crimanal record for their future. Can we not go one step further using curfew in curtailing bad behavior.Parents held responsible .In taking these, our decisions as an Island ourselves?
We see too many rules applied by following the U.K. Unaccountable as seen below. Children killing each other,Violence, Drug dealing.Out of control.
Why, then when we see that no one is accountable in admin in the U.K. In Departments here same applies.Or not known to lose their jobs either.
Even when proven neglect or found not fit for purpose, It is sickening yet again to see a head of Department U.K on T.V.The neglect in getting away with an apology on another appalling case in Haringey U.K Of total child neglect and suffering mostly of its life of a !7 month old child. This not being the first child from this Dept making it in media headlines so soon.
Why then are we continually following the rules from a country that have no teeth in ruling its own.For children left completley to their own devices and not taught dicipline or selfcontrol along with kindness.Growing up, not knowing any better by doing this for themselves.School,along with parent control where ever nessary should be in charge. As shown in other in other countries. Uk having the worse record as it is, is hardly likely to be the influence needed. Looks like Pot calling Kettle black at the moment.
