An increasing body of evidence links effective, positive parenting with family cohesion and is a key protective factor against young people’s substance misuse and associated problem behaviours. The evidence shows that effective parental involvement in a child school life makes a significant difference to a pupil’s engagement and achievement at school and impacts greatly on children & young people, parents/carers, teachers and schools.
