National Parenting Strategy: Making a positive difference to children and young people through parenting

National Parenting Strategy: Making a positive difference to children and young people through parenting

ISBN: 9781780459820

The Scottish Government's aspiration is for Scotland to be the best place in the world for children and young people to grow up. The National Parenting Strategy seeks to turn this aspiration into practical action - by championing the importance of parenting, by strengthening the support on offer to parents and by making it easier for them to access this support.

Executive Summary

The National Parenting Strategy is all about valuing and supporting Scotland's parents as one of the single biggest ways of giving children the best start in life. When we refer to parents, we mean anyone with a parenting role and we mean parents of children of all ages from the early years right through the teenage years and into young adults. This isn't about dictating to parents how to bring up their own children, this is about making it easier for parents to understand the positive difference they can make to their child's development, helping parents to feel confident in their ability to care for their children, feel reassured that help is available if and when they need support and ultimately making parenting an even more rewarding experience.
