Longview, NatCen, University of Oxford and the conference sponsors would like to invite you to attend:

'Parents Matter' International Conference

March 26th/27th 2009

Holborn Bars, 138-142 Holborn, London, EC1N 2NQ

The theme of this conference is the role of parents in life course changes. To what extent is ineffective parenting a factor in locking young children into low educational achievement and its often negative social and economic consequences? Does effective parenting brought about by intervention programmes really make a difference? Can intervention with parents still be effective in adolescence? What form should such intervention take?

This conference is aimed at practitioners and policy makers working in children's services and with families. Researchers and academics in the field will also find the coverage of much relevance to their work.
