FNF Scotland in national parenting strategy, shared parenting

An article by Families Need Fathers Scotland on "Parenting after separation: the case for sharing" is included in a new collection of essays published by Parenting Across Scotland, entitled "Scotland: the best place to bring up children?".

This publication is intended to stimulate debate and suggest issues for inclusion in the new National Parenting Strategy which is being developed by the Scottish Government.

The article describes the importance of shared parenting and suggests that the parenting strategy should emphasise this as the norm rather than the exception.


FNF Scotland will also be submitting comments from discussion at the local FNF groups about parenting after separation and we took part in a round-table discussion on fathers last week as part of the development of the Strategy.
