Parents in Carmarthenshire could now be asked to agree and sign a Parenting Contract.
The contracts try and find a common ground upon which parents can work in order to reduce their child's chances of re-offending.
The purpose of a Parenting Contract is to ensure that a child or children under an Acceptable Behaviour Contract is supervised correctly and that the parents are upholding their end of the agreement which is to ensure that their children cannot and do not commit any further acts of anti-social behaviour. Parents would also be offered parenting support to help them to do this.
The procedure for issuing Parenting Contracts is between ASB co-ordinator Michelle Langshaw and the Youth Offending and Prevention Service (YOPS).
