Sally Millard is co-founder of the IoI Parents forum which was set up in 2006 to provide a meeting place for those who want to make sense of why parenting is such a focus for policy makers. With concerns ranging from what we feed our children, to how much television they watch, to how we discipline them, it seems that bringing up kids is neither a straight forward task, nor a private matter. The Parents Forum has proved to be a great place to discuss these developments so that we can work out how to challenge them.
Sally is the Financial Controller of DACS, a member of the Battle of Ideas organising committee and the mother of two lovely children.
"The Battle of Ideas is where we can step out boldly where the angels – or should that be demons – of conventionality fear to tread."
