Start a National Program for Parenting Education
It is often said, when people become parents "There is no manual for this!" The Obamas have been impressive in their revelations of how they raise their own children. When Michelle told Barbara Walters that she informed the WH Staff there would have to "be some boundaries" and that her girls would be required to make their own beds and clean up their rooms, BabaWawa was flabbergasted, and probably so were many other people. In their first 100 days, the Obamas should shock the nation by declaring with great seriousness the importance of our most valuable resource for the future -- children -- and immediately start a National Program for Parenting Education (under HHS, with huge public input), in connection with hospitals and birth centers, and make parenting classes MANDATORY for both men and women who are in the process of creating a child, therefore producing healthier people and better citizens, and saving enormous amounts of money (crime, health, mental health -- all connected with parenting). In addition, The Obamas should put through Congress the establishment of National Parents Day with all the TV channels devoted all day to various aspects of good parenting, with no commercials, and for the rest of the year, TV channels would be required, as part of their licensing, to provide approved (secular) good-parenting programming on a regular basis in prime time.
