"It seems absurd and dangerous to move into this area and begin to legislate on how parents should raise," he says to the newspaper.
the children's rights organization Børns Vilkår, who runs a support phone for children, welcomes, however, the the bill.
"Many children say that they feel violated, monitored and deprived of the ability to act as the people at the gate," says Marianne Rasmussen, director of the helpline service.

the Bill is expected to get support in the parliament, and shall enter into force on 1 march.
