Raising Children provides up-to-date, evidence-based, scientifically validated information about raising children and caring for yourself as a parent or carer.
This easy to use website has tips and tricks for you to try with clear links each for each stage of development.
Articles, videos and interactive resources are tailored to different ages and stages, taking you from nurturing a newborn to raising a confident, resilient teen – and helping you to look after yourself as a parent too.
The tools on this website will help build your understanding of children’s development. This website even has parenting programs, resources, online courses and handy apps to explore.
Parenting can be challenging but it is important to make time for fun and connection with your child.
