Building parenting confidence

Bringing Up Great Kids

Parenting support and resources

We believe a loving, safe parent is the best relationship a child can have. We also know that parenting is tough, and that non-judgmental support can make a huge difference in enabling access to support.

Our Bringing Up Great Kids program presents access to knowledge about development, connection with others and an opportunity to reflect on their communication with children. We’ve consistently found that when opportunities for mindful reflection are created these can lead to positive change; including more respectful interactions and increased positive self-identity in children – and a better relationship for all.

More than 3000 facilitators have been trained to use the Bringing Up Great Kids program in a diverse range of organisations.
