Transforming Lives for Good (TLG) – Parental Concerns survey

Survey of parents on behalf of Transforming Lives for Good (TLG).

·         Parents with children aged 18 or under are most likely to report that they are concerned about their child making the progress they should be at school; approaching a quarter (23%) say it is their greatest concern, while more than half (52%) place it in their top three concerns.


·         It is, however, less of a concern for parents with younger children, with just 20% of parents with children aged under five saying it is their greatest concern compared to 28% of parents with children aged 11-15.


·        Their child being bullied by other children is also a particular concern for parents, with one in five (20%) saying it is their greatest concern, and 45% reporting it as one of their top three concerns.


·         Adults with children aged 16-18 years old are most likely to say that they are not concerned by any of areas tested; one in five (22%) report not being concerned with any of the options, compared to just 6% of parents with children aged under five.
