In the UK, over the past three decades or so, there has been a tenfold increase in the number of people diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum. This astonishing rise is a cause for concern, autism (and other associated conditions, Asperger’s syndrome included) having emerged from nowhere to trouble our children and threaten their...

In a recent post on our blog, we wrote about risk. It was our contention that, in the main, young people aren’t exposed to it enough. It’s far better, our argument goes, to climb a tree (and risk falling out) than it is to spend days on end glued to a screen, watching the TV,...

Let us be clear about this right from the start. Our intention is not to criticise, to denigrate or to find fault.

In health terms, there is nothing that concerns parents more than a child’s emotional and mental state. This is a subject that we tackled in a recent post on our blog following some in-depth research into the subject. Not long after the report that prompted this post, further figures were released. These underlined some of...

Got children? Got concerns? To be a parent is to fret. It’s part of the job. Not much makes us more anxious than the health of our children. Serious illnesses such as cancer. Long-term conditions like asthma or diabetes. Health, weight and diet. There’s so much to perturb parents. Few things, however, worries us much...

You can’t have it all. That’s the message the Government appears to have for modern mothers. Like to combine a career, motherhood and beauty? Forget about it. You can’t have the cake and eat it. This is a subject that stems from a recent report that Jo Swinson, the Coalition’s Minister for Women and Equalities,...
