KIRKLEES is to get one of the supernannies drafted in to help parents tame their unruly children.
A district councillor today welcomed the move announced by Prime Minister Tony Blair.
Experts will be recruited in 77 hotspots in England.
An extra £4 million will be provided to take on the child psychology experts - who will have skills such as those demonstrated by TV supernanny Jo Frost - to help parents stop their youngsters going off the rails.
On top of the scheme, extra training will be provided by 1,000 frontline family support workers already helping problem families to cope better.
Clr Jim Dodds, in charge of children's services on Kirklees Council's Cabinet, said: "I welcome anything that can help improve the behaviour of a minority of children.
"Something is needed to reduce yobbish behaviour and it is clear some parents need assistance."
The details of how the move is to be implemented have yet to be announced.
Mr Blair insisted it was right to give families a helping hand.
The Prime Minister said over the years he had come to feel increasingly strongly that Government should play a supporting role.
Mr Blair said: "Frankly in our personal lives there's nothing more difficult than being a parent and all of us have been through it."
The announcement came as Government research was published suggesting that 51% of people in Yorkshire and the Humber see "parents not bringing up their children appropriately" as a main cause of anti-social behaviour.
Just under half think that better parenting would do most to reduce crime.
And 91% of those questioned in the region think that 10-year-olds should be indoors and off the streets by 8.30pm or earlier on a school night.
