Ministers believe that problems on the streets often begin at home and want to make persistent binge drinkers and their parents sign good behavior contracts and attend therapy and training courses. Those who refuse face the threat of court action.
The crackdown on binge drinking comes just days after Britain's most senior police officer Sir Ian Blair called on parents to confront their children over weapons to help fight the knife crime epidemic sweeping the country.
Do you think parents should punished for their children's crimes? Or should teenagers be held responsible for their own actions?
Do you think schools should play a greater role in warning youngsters of the dangers of binge drinking?
Would a different approach to policing be more effective?
Or do you believe the Government should stop trying to tell us how to bring up our families?
