The Parenting Resource – Phase 2

May 17, 2019 at 11:38 AM

From Oranga Tamariki

Strengthening a valuable resource

Voices of Whānau and Community are pleased to announce the launch of phase two of The Parenting Resource.  Phase two takes the website from its original 0-3 years up to the age of 5 years.

Since its initial launch in June 2017 this website has proven to have much wider appeal and application than the initial target audience of Family Start whānau workers.

The Parenting Resource currently supports anyone working alongside families with young children. It provides parenting and child development information, ideas to encourage engagement, relevant research and external links for workers and whānau for use in formal and informal settings.

Users informed site changes

Voices of Whānau and Community listened to whānau workers’ feedback and together with the findings from evaluations undertaken by Waikato University and the Werry Centre, made a number of changes to the site.  Users will find more support by way of custom-made videos addressing subjects such as best practice, goal-setting and planning.

There is a new section focused on the joys and challenges young parents face bearing in mind their stages of brain development; more help in introducing te reo Māori into everyday parent-child play activities; and more scope for ongoing improvements.
