"We all pay a price for bad parenting"
Mr. O'Douherty claims that Ireland is full of "unfit parents' who abuse their children. He talks about vicious verbal abuse that he personally has witnessed time and time again in Dublin.
He demands that the Irish government take more of an active stance in taking these children away from their negligent parents and doing a better job of screening foster parents.What do you think?
