Consultative Committee with Parents

First 'chairing' of the consultative committee with parents this evening. Very 'big' round-table meeting - did wonder if there were too many individuals to make if effective to be honest.

But despite that concern, plenty of good debate on several important issues ... with the most heated (and interesting) deabte on the major risk factors that primarily affect young people in Edinburgh. Point of argument wasn't about what the factors were - drugs, alcohol, lack of parenting - but more about how much emphasis we should all put on problems that affect the minority?
