New legislation is in place in Queensland Australia to save children and punish parents. Forget the loopholes, the ambiguities of the law etc. Anna Bligh the Premier of Queensland has said that the Police should use "common sense"to uphold the law.
Apparently it will be a crime to leave your child unattended while going out. The law as heard by the population, in gossip terms is for parents who go to the casino or drinking, and here is where the police are to use common sense judgement.
I can see an oxymoron there!
We will have to wait and see what develops. I can see a surge in baby sitting. It might be the next big thing is small business.
