  • I agree fully

    I feel that there are to many children that are neglected or abused by their own parents. They brought the child into the world so they have the responsibility to look after the child and treat them like a child should be treated, with love and care. And there are so many children that are to scared to tell people what happens to them at home or what their parents do to them. Children should not live in fear, they should live.

  • Yes We can

    Yes Yes Yes very much NEEDED Too many parents have neglected their children and are incapable of being good parents. The population is rising, and their are so many children being made and the parents regretting so later. The parents take out their hatred to their children and the children grow up to do the same. This type of behavior is sickening, treating an innocent child that way is NOT good parenting. Many parents don't even want children but end up with them anyway. This a resolution to the problem and should be seen as only that.

  • Yes, the world would be a better place.

    Unqualified parents create damaged goods. Becoming a parent is probably one of the most selfish things a person can do. Forcing someone into life under the rule of someone unfit to parent can create a very unstable, depressed being. A child is not asked to be born and some grow up wishing they weren't. The least society can do to help alleviate some of the hate and anger in the world is to prevent inconsiderate people from obligating another human being to live through a traumatizing childhood. Despite the efforts adults may make to better themselves, how we grow up still has a huge impact on our later lives. I believe that if fewer children have to suffer through childhood, fewer adults will have to suffer through adulthood.

  • To Create a Better Population

    It is a necessity, especially in this day in age where overpopulation is becoming an issue, that certification become required for parenthood. A child's first source for learning comes from their parents. If this child is raised in a family which makes below minimum wage, has 7 siblings, and the parents are neglectful, they will be raised believing this is okay and will probably continue on that lifestyle when they are parents themselves. This is completely avoidable, either by not allowing people who do not pass multiple qualifications to reproduce, or by taking children away from parents who have failed to reach a set standard. To say this violate's a human's basic rights is inconsiderate. Who are you, to condemn your child/children to misery, because of your selfish decision? If you truly cared about your child, you would do what's best for them. And if you didn't, and you are just having children to benefit off welfare, you do not deserve to have a child regardless. Also, while on this topic, I have noticed a few points on the other side saying it will leave children in orphanages "lonely". Does that give the human race the green light to reproduce unnecessarily, so that we might fill our orphanages to the brim of uncared for children? No, that is an unbelievably foolish point and should not be used in this argument.

  • I don't see why not!

    Like Seriously its a great idea it would stop so much child abuse and also it means it would be survival of the fittest for nice people if you were abusive and horrible you would not be allowed to have a kid and therefore there would end up being less nasty genes in the world and more nice people.

  • Yes, humans don't know everything, but we can try.

    You don't just magically know how to be a parent. Mothers have instincts but that only goes so far, not to mention that it starts to disappear as the child get older. I am not a parent, but I know I will be one someday, and I will be taking classes. Their is no way to fully know how to parent/ take care of a child. Their are some many people that don't know how a child's mind work psychologically, and how to apply that into taking care of them. So my child can turn out the best that they can be and have the best chance at having a good life, I need to make sure that I 100% know what I'm doing or at least close to that. I may not agree with everything I learn about children and how to take care of them, but at least ill know.

  • Save the kids

    My opinion is that adults should have to get a parenting license and i approve because there will be better parents my reasons are there would be no abusers, alcoholics, drug users and many more examples of bad parent attributes. People can't use kids just to get taxes. No teen pregnancy

  • Taking away freedom

    Why would you want to strip American's away from the right to reproduce if they want? Why should good parents suffer because abusive parents are treating children unfairly? Who would be making the rules to parenthood, and what if a good parent fails this test? What if a sociopath (who is good at pleasing people and fooling others acting civil and moral) when they're not? You cant judge a persons character unless they show it on the outside which is very unlikely. Then good parents who may not pass the financial or educational part (if there is one), they don't get to become parents. 3 words... No American freedom. If the government can control this, soon they'll be able to tell you how many kids you can have, or have to approve of your marriage.

    Lastly, what happens to the children who's parents don't pass. Do orphanages or foster homes capacity increase 10x what it is now? To many unknowns, and to many questions the government doesn't have an answer to.

  • No, people should not have to be licensed to be parents.

    Even if in a perfect world it was possible to scan every single person to determine whether or not they were fit to be parents, that is not plausible, possible, or economical, and it treads on risky moral grounds. What do we do to the people who are 'unfit' to be parents? Take away the children? Make it obligatory that they are neutered? And who judges who is fit to be a parent? The idea is nice, but impractical.

  • Think about the future in other way

    In future, there will be more people which indicates that there will be more babies and kids. What if many parents fail their tests and lose their babies. There are more increased amount of babies but parents are losing them. There will not be enough space for orphanage and foster. So, think again. Do we really need license to sacrifice more babies and kids?

  • The idea is repulsive.

    There can be education for parents to limit the number of their offspring to improve their wellbeing. There can be Social Services community officers who ensure the children's well being and they can surely be more involved than they are now in most countries, for the sake of the children. There can be (dis)incentives to steer the people towards the desired population figure. But -despite having seen some really bad parenting examples- the idea that people should take a licence to become parents is repulsive from virtually any democratic point of view: it is deeply illiberal and evades peoples very personal lives and also goes against nature and traditions. It is deeply undemocratic and statist; usually a product of these two is called fascist.

  • No more abuse to children

    Currently in the UK, 9% (6,570 children) are living in secure units, children's homes or hostels because of terrible parents. We need to stop this because our world is becoming s world where a lot of people don't want to be anymore. So We need to stop this while we can..

  • Nooo no no

  • I think parents shouldn't have to get a license even if it's not their child.

    I think that parents shouldn't have to get a license because what if it's a good home but they don't have enough money to get something like a license or don't have enough time to go through the long process it could also be traumatic for the child and parent.
