Jeffery Hall, Institute of Education (London) Tuesday 21st June 2011

The Institute of Education will be holding the above event for researchers, policy makers and those working to support families and parents.

Parents have an enormous influence over the development, education, health and well being of their children. Rapid social, demographic and economic changes over recent decades mean that the demands and pressures on parents are changing. It is important that policies designed to support parents and improve the quality of parenting have a secure evidence base and are relevant to the circumstances of today's families. In Britain we are fortunate to have uniquely detailed longitudinal evidence from the cohort studies and other longitudinal studies on the ways that parenting and childhood circumstances can impact on individuals through the life course. These studies also enable us to understand how families and parenting are changing over time. This conference provides an opportunity for researchers, practitioners and those influencing policy to come together to share information about the latest research evidence and discuss implications for policy.
