Transcript of Should people have to get a license to become parents?

Should people have to get a license to become parents? main point 3: Conclusion Introduction: main point 1: By Andrea Ruiz Lack of parent training places a financial strain on social services provided by taxpayers. Uniformed parents are unprepared to proactive address the physical, emotional, educational, and psychological needs of their children in a cost effective and timely manner. main point 2: References: Questions? We have to obtain a license before getting married, a gun, and driving a motor vehicle, yet we aren't required to get a license to become parents. Does that make sense? Raising a human being is one of the most important jobs in the world. shouldn't people know the basics of taking care of a child before raising the next generation? http://voices.yahoo.com/


http://www.acf.hhs.gov/ Parents should be required to attend classes and obtain a license prior to the birth of their first child. According to national statistics provided by Child Protective Services. 3.7 million children were reported and 2.2 million reports required follow-up services.

According to Safehorizon.org, an organization that aids to those who are abused reported that the age of most children who become victims of abuse and neglect are 18 months or younger, the number of children in the United States who died because of abuse or neglect in 2010: 1,537, and the number of children who died because of abuse or neglect, specifically 79.4% were younger than four years of age and 47.7% were younger than one year in age.

Staggering reports provided by Child Protective Services state that 75% suffered neglect, 15% suffered physical abuse and 10% suffer sexual abuse.

These statistics can change if proactive steps are taken to educate parents, especially new, young parents.

All adults that support children's educational, physical, and emotional health such as school, babysitters, and daycare all need to be thoroughly trained and licensed before caring for your child. so why shouldn't a parent? It's best for the child's well being and safety if the parents know how the basic necessities for caring for another life. Getting a license to become a parent shouldn't be something to punish people that want to be parents but to better prepare them for the future, It's in the child's and the parent's best interest to provide parents with the resources and information to care for their children. I don't think that these classes should teach morals or religious preferences because we all have different values which makes all of us unique. But classes should include the most recent information to raise emotionally and physically healthy children.
