The Scottish Government's aspiration for children and young people is clear: we want Scotland to be the best place in the world to grow up.
The National Parenting Strategy seeks to turn that aspiration into practical action – by championing the importance of parents to Scottish society, by strengthening the support on offer to parents and by making it easier to access that support. Put simply, by helping our nation's parents be the very best they can be to make a positive difference to children and young people.
Ambitious? Yes. But the higher we aim, the harder we'll strive and the more progress we'll make in our bid to ensure that every child has the best start in life and the best outcomes later in life.
