Why Does Parenting Matter?
  • Parenting is probably the most important public
    health issue facing our society. It is the single
    largest variable implicated in childhood illness
    and accidents, teenage pregnancy and substance
    misuse, truancy, school disruption and under
    achievement, child abuse, unemployability,
    juvenile crime and mental illness. These are
    serious in themselves but are even more serious
    as precursors of problems in adulthood and the
    next generation. Houghui (1995)

9
The Links Between Parenting and Health
  • Evidence from Russek Schwatz (1997) clearly
    indicated the impact that parental caring has on
    health status in later life. Particularly in
    relation to CHD, hypertension, duodenal ulcer
    alcoholism
