TXT 4 HELP WITH UR KIDS Government launches new plan to help parents by text messages and social networks

Parents will be able to receive text and instant messages to help them with their children, thanks to a £34m new initiative launched today by Children’s and Families Minister Kevin Brennan.

Using phone helplines and the internet, ‘Parent Know-How’ will signpost parents to information and support services. It will be targeted at people who may struggle to find the help they need – such as the parents of disabled children, fathers and those from disadvantaged communities. Kevin Brennan, Children’s and Families Minister said: “We want to support those parents who seek help with bringing up their children. By improving phone line support and setting up text messages, instant messages and social networks, we will provide help for parents when it suits them best.”

Interesting approach or waste of time leave decision up to you
