1.1 Introduction
“I blame the parents!” How often is that phrase used to explain the ills of society and is it valid? This material will consider how important is quality parenting, who judges it, and is its provision the sole responsibility of parents – should parents just be left to get on with it? It explores what parenting actually means, what is meant by quality parenting and, how it can be enhanced and promoted. It is of interest to anyone who is, might become or works with parents.
