Pro­vide the right help

RE: “School out for youths”, (Mt Druitt-St Marys Stan­dard, Oc­to­ber 7).

Stop­ping par­ents’ pay­ments doesn’t help the child.

Some kids come from trou­bled and com­plex house­holds.

Per­haps more sup­port for the child (would help). Some don’t sleep well, eat well or have the fam­ily sup­port – the list goes on.

Gov­ern­ment-funded shut­tle ser- vices and youth work­ers work­ing along­side teach­ers and par­ents (could also help).

Our com­mu­nity needs to show th­ese kids we care. It takes a vil­lage to raise a child. KEL CAMERON,
