Call for ‘five-a-day’ parenting campaign

An independent think-tank  is urging  the government to introduce a ‘five-a-day’ parenting campaign which provides a range of activities that parents should be doing with their children each day.

The Centre Forum’s report, ‘Parenting Matters’, argues that good parenting skills can be learnt and that the concept of the ‘five a day’ healthy eating campaign should be replicated to promote good parenting in an effort to aid social mobility.

Proposed activities include parents playing with their child on the floor for 10 minutes a day, reading with their child for 15 minutes a day, talking with their child for 20 minutes with the TV off, and giving frequent praise.

Read the full report.

Try out some fun activities today, they’re freely available and include guidance for parents – The Children’s Traffic Club, Nationwide Education.
