Basseterre, St. Kitts, May 14, 2015 (SKNIS): The importance of strengthening the family in relation to raising positive, productive young people rather than at-risk youth was highlighted as part of the strategy of addressing crime during the Throne Speech delivered by Governor Generalâ€™s Deputy His Excellency S.W. Tapley Seaton.
â€œWe must also strengthen our family, the family network is eroding and government can play a positive role in reestablishing the foundation for strong families,â€ he said. Â â€œWith the economic challenges we face today, parents are working two or three jobs to make ends meet. Â The government will lead by example, knowing full well strong families are the pillars on which this federation must be built.â€
