Parenting in Australia

In general, Australian children are privileged when it comes to respecting their rights. However, some of them, including those who are victims of poverty or are children of Aboriginal people, whose rights are often violated. A massive 78% of children who moved there from countries like the UK started spending more time outdoors than they did before, and most ate healthier. By comparison, foreign children who moved to Britain were more likely to be lazy and inactive.

The Community Parenthood Program aims to do just that, promoting and creating a strong community for parents to learn from each other, share and feel supported, for their benefit and that of their child or children. The grassroots program started in Western Australia and is expanding to all states and territories. He has launched a 10-year vision to build a community committed to improving parenting practices across Australia.

The most recent campaigns have launched community parenting programs in the Illawarra and South West Sydney regions of New South Wales, as well as Armidale and the Cockburn corridor in Perth. The program aims to involve and connect parents who need or seek more support on their parenting journey, for themselves and for their children. In a society where mothers’ groups and support for moms abound, it is often difficult for fathers to get together to talk, whether it be for support, to talk about their day, their family life, their fears, from stress or even from joy and love for their children. The Community Parenthood Program focuses on parents of all backgrounds, including diverse communities, Indigenous parents, perinatal parents, incarcerated parents, and parents of children with disabilities.

In Australia, one in seven children lives trapped in poverty. Low-income families struggle to raise their children, who are sometimes abused or mistreated. In Australia, poverty affects mainly immigrant families. This has a significant impact on the lives of children who, as a consequence, are less healthy and have fewer opportunities to access higher education.
