why the Kahui's should never have been parents
Reading the reports of the Kahui court case it is quite clear what the problem was: these two were quite happy shacking up but didn't want to commit to being parents, and Chris Kahui didn't want to go out and get a job. So why was he on a benefit, if you have to be available and looking for full time work to be eligible for a benefit?
Instead the couple argued about Chris Kahui's lack of work motivation, and King felt that when she was tired she could take off to her mums, sisters, wherever else..while Chris would go around and get her - and heaven knows where the kids would be and whether the whanau even though there may be something wrong.
No responsibility for parenting,that's what. By both parents, by the grandparents, or by the rest of the whanau. And y'know, our Government doesn't even care about such responsibilities enough to say anything about it, let alone do anything about it apart from given these idiots family assistance as well as a benefit and allowing them to be bludging off the state - and they wonder why our child abuse figures are so high.
