Lazy parents who fail to prioritise are to blame
WITH reference to Jean Dalziel's comments regarding children going to school hungry without having had breakfast and the increasing demand for food parcels, yes, I agree, this is a very sad state of affairs but the government cannot be blamed for this.
I believe that welfare benefits are generous, especially for low-income families and single mothers.
We know that the system is abused and that's one of the reasons that this country is going (or has gone) to the dogs.
I blame lazy parents who cannot be bothered to get up in the mornings early enough to ensure that their children are adequately fed before leaving for school. Porridge, cereals, toast and milk are inexpensive items compared to the cost of plasma-screen TVs, mobile phones, X-Boxes, iPads, laptops and the like, all of which most families have these days.

I say to these parents, "Get your priorities right, food comes before anything else, get up a bit earlier in the mornings, feed your kids and take responsibility for their health and well-being and stop blaming someone else".

The Telegraph says
There are clearly those who do not prioritise food over other items, but is it the same for everyone? Is it hard for a family to survive on benefits when shoes need replacing, school uniforms need buying, rent or a mortgage needs paying etc?
