This evidence briefing highlights the findings, and their relevance in key policy areas, of research which suggests that good parenting skills and a supportive home learning environment are positively associated with children's early achievements and wellbeing. Hence interventions to improve the quality of home and family life can increase social mobility. This is one in a series of seven briefings that summarise a selection of ESRC-funded research on the topic of social mobility. As well as parenting, the briefings cover health, education, poverty and skills.
