 Lower Incomes Makes It Tough for Parents to Discipline Children

A recent survey has revealed that disciplining children is harder for parents on lower incomes.

A poll of more than 1,000 parents found only 27 percent of those whose incomes fell into the bottom fifth were consistent at setting and enforcing rules, compared with 41 percent of parents with incomes in the upper fifth.

Kitty Ussher, director of political think-tank Demos, said those who worked in low-income jobs should get more support.

"Inconsistent parenting ... will only be addressed by looking at reducing poverty, improving housing stock and supporting good parenting," the Scotsman quoted her as saying.
