Government has played an increasing role in family life because too many parents have not fulfilled their childrearing responsibilities.
The misuse of parental power in child abuse and the abdication of parental responsibilities in child neglect have necessitated governmental interventions in order to protect children.
A parent license would validate parental rights, establish parental responsibility, and provide a basis for the societal support of parenting in the form of financial benefits, parent education and training, and protective services for children when necessary.
By generally increasing competent parenting, it would substantially reduce the need for governmental interventions in families.
