Why punish the children?

Wirral Globe: Why punish the children? Why punish the children?

CAN anyone explain to me why children are, yet again, being punished by this Government?

When I took my grandson to nursery the other day, I happened to enquire about an extra day nursery for him as I am so impressed at his progress, due to the excellent staff.

I was informed they had just been told the government had refused funding for all Sure Start Nurseries and that, as of the end of this term, will no longer be practicing as they have been told they are closing down.

I am absolutely disgusted at this news.

Not only for the children who have benefited from the care and attention they have received from dedicated staff, but for the staff themselves as, yet again, they will be out of work and on the dole, something they do not deserve.

I have to conclude this heartless Government doesn’t care who suffers, as long as they save money from the wrong means.

By that, I mean children, parents and staff all suffer while the rich get richer.

Lynne Wilkinson, Wallasey.

I am absolutely disgusted that parents expect so much when they have a child. If your son or daughter wanted children then they must make provisions for them in infancy. Why should the taxpayer fork out for Sure Start nurseries, if you want your grandson in a nursery, there are plenty of private around. Can`t see how any of your comments relate to the rich getting richer?

I am afraid I partially agree with he first comment. All this extra nursery time is doing, is building a brick wall between Mum and Dad. Parent' are responsible in law for their youngsters until the age of maturity. Therefore, children must always be under the watchful eye of a parent. These nurseries were to my knowledge first introduced in the 1940's and 1950's to assist families left with only one parent. So that the single parent had a chance to earn a living for themselves and their child. They were not meant to be for two parent families.
