Rebel Youth Support Shared Parenting
Muriel Newman's Shared Parenting Bill deserves cross-party support, according to a youth group who say that the Bill offers hope to a lost generation of sole-parented children.
Gavin Middleton, Vice-President of Prebble's Rebels, urged Members of Parliament from all parties to support the Shared Parenting Bill.
"There is a generation of children growing up in New Zealand who've lost the support of one parent. This Bill acknowledges that both parents have a role to play in bringing up their children."
"Dr Newman's Bill contains the necessary safeguards to protect children from falling into the custody of unfit parents. This is a Bill whose time has come and Parliament should unite to send the Bill to select commitee" Mr Middleton said.
