(3)If such an application is made, the court may make a parenting order in respect of a parent of the child or young person if it is satisfied—

(b)that making the order would be desirable in the interests of preventing the child or young person from engaging in further criminal conduct or further anti-social behaviour.
(4)A parenting order is an order which requires the parent—
(a)to comply, for a period not exceeding twelve months, with such requirements as are specified in the order, and
