    The study explores policies for supporting economically disadvantaged and hard-to-reach families in Hong Kong. Given the crucial role of family and parenting in child development, it is important to ensure that policies for tackling poverty should take the special circumstances of economically disadvantaged families into consideration. The objectives of the study are: (1) to review on how parent education is conducted in Hong Kong by schools, government clinics, and social services agencies, with a focus on economically disadvantaged and hard-to-reach families; (2) to identify the needs of hard-to-reach parents with offspring from 0 to 15 years of age for parent education; (3) to make recommendations, based on the findings of the study, on the possible ways to support the parents in performance of their parenting role, and the contents, modes of delivery, structure of parent education for economically disadvantaged and hard-to-reach parents.
