Britain's Nanny State

Britain is taking the phrase "nanny state" quite literally:

"Parents of babies and toddlers will be expected to record their child's progress in new 'learning diaries' under a £9million Government scheme."

"They will be encouraged to log details of every activity attempted by their children, ranging from stacking play bricks to singing nursery rhymes.

"The diaries will be scrutinised by childcare experts to check that parents are doing all they can to prevent their offspring falling behind.

"...the initiative, the latest in a series of interventions in the lives of the youngest children, is certain to provoke renewed claims of 'Nanny State' interference."

And with good reason.
