Sally Millard is the mother of two primary school age children and works full time as a Financial Controller.
She is a founder member of the IoI Parents Forum, which was set up to provide a meeting place for those who want to make sense of why parents and parenting has become such a focus for policy makers. With concerns ranging from how many books we have at home, to what we feed our children, to how much television they watch, 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.

The problem with families
"Participating in the Battle was a little like entering a Bombay train at rush hour - it's a plunge into a swirl of wildly differing notions of how people should arrange themselves in a really tight situation. When you eventually emerge, you find that you're in a different place from where you started - and that you've been thoroughly energised from the journey. I can't wait to take the trip again next year."
