Children should have parenting lessons, poverty tsar says

Government poverty adviser Frank Field is to call for all children to be given parenting classes at school when he presents recommendations from his review into poverty to education secretary Michael Gove.


In an interview in Monday's Guardian newspaper, the Labour MP, (pictured), said parenting should be taught as a theme, 'not as a separate ghetto subject', but within other subjects, for example children's brain development in science GCSEs.

The review will recommend a move away from a mainly financial approach to tackling child poverty to one that focuses on parenting and early years.
