Quote:Parents will be given a five-a-day checklist detailing how they should bring up their children under a plan which is winning ministerial support.

Television and radio advertisements and posters in nurseries and on buses would spell out how parents should play, read, talk, praise, and feed their children every day, under the proposed drive.

Companies that make toys, children’s books and baby food would be encouraged to brand their products with an official logo under the proposed scheme, which is modelled on the successful “five-a-day” fruit and vegetables dietary campaign.

The children’s minister, Sarah Teather, warmly welcomed the proposals, which came from the think-tank, CentreForum, and promised to consider the option of a “five-a-day” campaign for child development.

The initiative would aim to overhaul society’s attitudes towards parenting in a similar way to the change in how drink-driving has been seen over the past 50 years. wtf2.gif http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/health...ldren.html

Politicians with too much power and time on their hands coming up with initiatives handed down to them from banker baron foundations. Madness needs to stop.

CentreForum a supposed 'liberal think tank'. A list of their corporate backers

Babcock, Bloomberg, BP, BAE Systems, Brunswick, carrousel capital, Citi, City of London, Diageo, GE, KPMG, Prospects, prudential, serco.

It's a dog eat dog world, no list of 5 things to do, is going to change that.
