Up until the 1970's, life as a woman was quite simple (if not very equal, but that is another debate). In the main, you got married, you had a child and you stayed at home to raise them and take care of the home while your husband went out to work.
So while the headlines today are right on the money, let's not lose sight of the elements of this programme that could work and that must form the basis of future programmes to support these vulnerable families across the United Kingdom - including lessons for work in Scotland. If we do, we'll be failing them all over again.
Blaming porn for children being sexually active and anxious about sex, is a single minded and uneducated view. Snapchat, Tinder, Facebook and even Whatsapp, all give young people an endless platform for swapping messages and photos without their parents knowing.
Last Saturday 8th October marked World Hospice and Palliative Care Day, and this year the theme is 'living and dying in pain: it doesn't have to happen' - an important message on an even more important day. It has now been statistically proven that people who receive palliative care can live for longer.
My name is Maisy and I am 19-years-old. For the last year I have been a part time Young Adviser for Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Famili...
We take it for granted that the Government has data on everything that's important. But right now, they don't know the number of children in our communities up and down the country who've been abused and need support. As a society, if we don't know exactly how many children are suffering, how can we ensure they are all getting the help they need?
A child's mental health problems will not come to an end like its awareness day - quite the opposite. This issue requires an ongoing, coordinated way of thinking that makes the best use of new approaches including technology; and this is very much the case when it comes to children.
Last nights BBC2 documentary 'A World Without Down's Syndrome?' has already raised a lot of questions before it was even aired and although my son doesn't have Downs syndrome it is still something which affected me during my pregnancy and the issues surrounding it continue to affect me today.
I've been a nurse for nearly 50 years, many of them on the front line in the care of sick children. It's a proud, positive and much loved profession. But as I write today, children's palliative nursing is facing a crisis: the number of children with life-limiting conditions that need care and support is increasing but the number of nursing posts to provide that support is failing to keep apace.
Clocks, television controls, and bathroom scales are just innocuous items around the home the hidden items they contain have the potential to devastate lives up and down the country- button batteries
As children are more vulnerable to trauma, they may not even have to experience the burglary itself to sustain psychological consequences. It's possible for them to be traumatised simply by their parents' reaction.
Research has emerged that suggests bullying could be more detrimental to a child's mental health than physical abuse. A US study of 1,420 children found that those who had been bullied, but not maltreated, were almost four times more likely to have mental health problems than children who were maltreated... So why do we continue to diminish the effect bullying has on children's mental health?
Since 2001 more than two million pupils left primary school without the ability to read well. Reading well, and with enjoyment, is a skill that unlocks opportunities at school and in life. If children do not read well, and enjoy reading, by the age of 11 they are likely to suffer social, economic and cultural exclusion as adults.
As it currently stands, there is a skills gap from leaving the education system and being able to function in the workplace. Could a contributory factor to this be due to the lack of interaction and education on how to responsibly use technology?
For those who are less academic and more creative, a keen interest and ability in art can offer them a much needed acknowledgement. It can give them praise that they might have otherwise bypassed and can therefore boost self-esteem for those who thought that they were all but hopeless.
I would urge all of those who voted to Remain to rekindle the feelings that they felt in the days following 23 June and to make a stand. We need to protect our economic future and the futures of our children and the Liberal Democrats might just provide the platform to achieve that.
