Oh, U.S. people, don't get your panties in a wad. This proposed law is for parents in the U.K. Not only are they going to set a curfew on these slackers, but they'll take their passports. I don't know about you, but if someone can't afford to pay for child support then how do they pay to get out of the country?
Do I support this? Being someone who has always paid the bills on her own, hell yes! I think it's kind of silly to create a whole new organization for it because it's going to cost them a fortune, but maybe they'll find a way to pay for it.
PS - Yes, US people, you should be paying for your kids. If not--SHAME ON YOU!
