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.
- Families should be told to get their children up in the morning
- Give them breakfast
- Get them to school
- Engage in proper conversation and
- 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?
