Children, parents and families are all different. There are different cultural backgrounds, family structures and beliefs. This means that decisions about what’s best for raising children are personal to and different for every family. There are some useful universal parenting principles for everyone, but the ‘right’ solution often changes from family to family.

The Raising Children site provides up-to-date, evidence-based, scientifically validated information about raising children and caring for yourself as a parent or carer. Working with over 200 top Australian and international experts, various parenting methods are described and explained in a way which lets people choose options that suit their circumstances.
