David Cameron plans to make parenting classes 'normal'

David Cameron plans to make parenting classes 'normal' | Children Families & Society | Scoop.it
David Cameron wants to make it “normal” and “even aspirational” for people to take up parenting classes to help them communicate, discipline and play with their children.   Parents could receive vouchers to encourage them to continue with classes, even as their children grow older, as part of a wide-ranging plan to put family life at the heart of the PM’s second term. Mr Cameron will also double funding to help more than 300,000 couples save their relationships as he looks to tackle poverty by reducing the number of separated parents over the next five years.

Amelia Boddison's insight:
Surely rather than labelling children (boys) as ill we should be looking at why they're behaving in the ways they are rather than assuming and giving them dangerous medicines?!
