PAS conference 2010 - Parents on the breadline
Our November 2010 conference looked at how children's outcomes can be adversely affected by bad parenting; they can also be adversely affected by poverty. But if being a parent is one of the hardest jobs any of us can do, how much harder is it when you're also struggling with the stresses of poverty?
