TIMES are hard for Scotland’s parents – and only half believe the land in which they grew up is still the best place to raise their kids.
Campaign group Parenting Across Scotland, a partnership of high-profile charities who offer support to children and families, argue that too many mums and dads still struggle to find the help they need.
In response, they have launched a series of proposals on how to make improvements, according to The Daily Record.
Project manager Clare Simpson said: “Most parents do a great job by themselves, but all families need help from time to time and some need real support at times of crisis.
“We have a lot of work to do to get it right from the start for every family in Scotland and give all families the support they deserve.
“If the Scottish Government are serious about making Scotland the best place in the world to bring up children, they need to invest in mainstream support for families to ensure the National Parenting Strategy is something that really makes a difference to all of Scotland’s families.”
