What do you think would make Scotland the best place in the world to bring up children?
What help do you think parents need?
OPFS believes it is important that policy recognises the strengths of lone parenthood and that the contribution that lone parents bring to society in caring for their children single-handed should be acknowledged. A national parenting strategy should recognise this as a unique challenge facing lone parents.
The Scottish Government wants to make Scotland the best place in the world to bring up children, and so they have put together a National Parenting Strategy to provide better support for parents. The Strategy was launched at the Parenting across Scotland conference on 3 October 2012, and Aileen Campbell MSP, the Minister for Children and Young People, talked about what Scottish Government plans to do to make sure that parents get the help they need when they need it.
