Police State Around the Corner: Teaching parenting skills

What in the world? My eyes almost popped out when I saw: "Police teach parenting skills: Parents get tips on hard-to-handle kids"! It used to be that extended families pitched in to help raise the next generation. Alternatively, one could count on the local church to help, for those who were away from relatives.

Now the police is teaching parenting skills instead? What's next? Will they teach toilet training skills? Sex education? (never mind: public school is already doing that)
