'5 a day' tips for positive parenting

A report has been published encouraging the Government to help teach good parenting skills. The paper recommends 5 things parents should be doing with their child each day: read to them for 15 minutes, play on the floor for 10 minutes, talk for 20 minutes with the TV off, adopt a positive attitude towards their children and praise them frequently, provide a nutritious diet to aid development.
