The State wants your children: parents guilty of "emotional cruelty" to be jailedWatch
Parents found guilty could face up to 10 years in prison, the maximum term in child neglect cases.
The change will update existing laws in England and Wales that allow an adult responsible for a child to be prosecuted only if they have deliberately assaulted, abandoned or exposed a child to suffering or injury to their health.
The new offence would make it a crime to do anything that deliberately harmed a child's "physical, intellectual, emotional, social or behavioural development".
This could include deliberately ignoring a child, or not showing them any love, over prolonged periods, damaging a child’s emotional development.
Other new offences could include forcing a child to witness domestic violence, making a child a scape goat or forcing degrading punishments upon them.
The threat of the "love police" populated by our unaccountable SS (Social[ist] Services) will breed an army of State worshipping teenagers who are willing to denounce their parents at the drop of a hat if they attempt to imbue them with religious moral values, commit a thought crime against far-left progressivism, send them to bed without any supper or refuse to buy them an iPad. The State will side with the children, who get to showcase their knowledge of their "rights" and demonstrate what good citizens they are.
Why is this being done? The State in order to support itself requires clients, individuals who are beholden to it and cannot imagine an existence in which they can support themselves without its beneficence. Strong families counteract a strong State, as the individual's need for its services is drastically reduced. There is also the risk of parents raising their children with unwelcome ideologies such as right-wing politics which are a threat to the inexorable "progress".
This kind of stuff pisses me off to the core
The people who come up with these ideas need a slap, a bloody hard one at that. The power of parents are way too limited as it is.
We've already got the profoundly illiberal "hate" component of crimes, punishing wrong thoughts. How on earth can we trust the State to determine the correct way of raising children without "starving them of love" or some such concept?
Just look at how much education has gone downhill since the loony left's teaching methods took over. Who really wants to let them loose on parenting, and jailing those who disagree?
My argument would come in the form of how exactly can we impose such a law and exactly where do we draw the line?
Does someone who's parents made them upset for a few days maybe or had an argument with parents now have the right to try and impose criminal action upon their parents?
A "Tory government" whose leader believes that marriage is between a man and a man. Pull the other one mate. They're deliberately destroying the family to enable State supremacy.

It is about extremely destructive ones.
Attachment theory is highly regarded and generally accepted in the academic community, I would like to see you argue against it, please.
If you don't disagree with attachment theory then it is utterly absurd to argue with this policy on anything other than with how it may or may not be implemented.
