The riots in August 2011 have prompted a great deal of debate about family life and have shone a spotlight on the role of parents. In response to this increased scrutiny of parenting, this collection of articles by 30 leading commentators and academics examines parenting from a range of perspectives – and ask whether there really is a crisis of parenting in the UK. It considers the pressures on modern parenting, what can be learnt from the reaction to riots and what these developments might mean for parenting policy.
