"The love of parents is so important for a child's personal development and growth. It is the gift that makes society possible. Parents surely deserve the best we can offer to help them develop their skills and grow in confidence....We've recently seen, from a number of diocesan projects across Englandand Wales, that the immediate and the long-term benefits for parents,their children and for the church can be quite extraordinary."
