Nearly 17 million people are living with children under the age of 16 but there has never been a book which directly addresses their greatest concerns - until now. Based on a specially commissioned MORI poll, the book is able, for the first time, to address the issues that parents are saying worry them most. Then, using a team of academic experts in the field, Murrin and Martin lay out the key facts, provide scientific knowledge about the significance of the problem, give clear guidance as to what is normal and provide guidance on what the parents can do. The broad areas covered include - nutrition, social development, behaviour and discipline, school and learning, health and crime
