Growing Support for Holding Parents Accountable for Children’s Violent Actions

The Attorney General, Sir Steadroy Benjamin, plans to introduce new legislation in parliament soon, with consultations to follow for input from parents and stakeholders.

“We gather feedback from the public during consultations to determine a reasonable punishment,” said the AG.

Director of Education Clare Browne supports the plan, stressing the need for thorough groundwork and stakeholder feedback before implementation.

This approach aims for inclusive decision-making, considering all concerns and reaching a consensus.

Browne highlights the importance of supporting parents through programs like Positive Behavior Management and counseling.

He also praised Colonel Trevor Pennyfeather’s efforts in prison management and rehabilitation, discussing potential education assistance.

Bishop Charlesworth Browne previously endorsed the bill, citing its potential as a deterrent for parental accountability.

The proposed measure seeks to send a clear message about parental responsibility for their children’s actions.
