Parents still concerned about impact of commercialisation

Parents remain concerned about the impact advertising and marketing are having, both directly and indirectly, on the lives of children and young people a new Report reveals. 

Research published today by Mothers’ Union reveals that despite welcome attention since 2010, four in five (80%) parents in Britain are  concerned about the commercialisation of childhood, and a similar proportion (81%)  say that the media encourages their children to ask their parents to buy them things that they see advertised, indicating the potential impact of “Pester Power”. 


General Election - pray and engage

You may think that the General Election is a long way off but May 7th is fast approaching! It is very easy to get bogged down with all the information that is thrown at us by the parties, or become disengaged by the endless “debating” of the party leaders, or just feel like your vote doesn’t count in the grand scheme of things. However, it really does matter and you really can make a difference when you engage in politics.


Women in Focus

The month of March has a distinct focus on women. Within four weeks we are challenged afresh by the obedience of Mary in bearing God’s Son; we are inspired by remarkable lives on International Women’s Day; we uphold the value of motherhood on Mothering Sunday and we join in prayer with women around the world on World Day of Prayer. In addition to this we watch with interest the debates taking place at the Commission for the Status of Women at the United Nations; this year focussing on a review of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action.
