That may currently be true in most cases, however the Courts have noticed that lack of training and are increasingly ISSUING COURT ORDERED PARENTING CLASSES
in an attempt to correct this deficiency.

I know that in some of the high schools that I have administered, we offered “parenting classes” to student mothers/fathers. I do not know why such programming couldn’t be expanded to serve the entire community. After all, poor parenting affects not only those particular students, but all others as well when it spills into classrooms and into the community as a whole.
