5 a day for parenting

Dr Liz Sidwell is reported in the Telegraph to believe that there should be a 5 a day plan for making sure that children are ready for school.

  1. Families should be told to get their children up in the morning
  2. Give them breakfast
  3. Get them to school
  4. Engage in proper conversation and
  5. Read together on a daily basis

Given that at least 3 of these things are also protective factors for substance use what do we think?
