Parents of children who rob, steal cars and break into homes are breaking the law which requires them to "provide the necessities of life" to their offspring. Should they be prosecuted? ERWIN CHLANDA spoke with Families Minister Dale Wakefield. She is pictured (at right) with Mayor Damien Ryan and COTA NT CEO Sue Shearer cutting the birthday cake as the NT Seniors Card turns 20 and the Council on the Ageing, 50.
Why do police not prosecute parents and carers who fail to provide their children with the necessities of life? ERWIN CHLANDA receives a response from Assistant Police Commissioner Jamie Chalker (pictured).
