Although living standards have increased in the past 40 years, children’s behaviour problems have become worse. Good parenting can help by maximising children’s potential and promoting resilience. Although effective programmes are available that improve parenting, ineffective approaches are still used widely. A new National Academy for Parenting Practitioners has been set up in England, which offers free training in evidence-based interventions and conducts research to increase their effectiveness.
