Your trusted resource for working with families

raisingchildren.net.au provides up-to-date, evidence-based, independent and free information for parents and professionals working with families. Funded by the Australian Government, our resources are continually reviewed by top Australian and international experts.

Packed with practical tips and tricks, our parent-friendly content takes parents from pregnancy and birth to the teenage years. We cover behaviour, development, health, sleep, nutrition, mental health, learning, play, safety, disability and much more. We also provide advice on self-care for mums, dads, grandparents and carers.

raisingchildren.net.au is for all Australian families. We also have resources specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families as well as culturally and linguistically diverse, blended, rainbow and same-sex families.

As a professional, you can refer parents to raisingchildren.net.au or download information to share with the families you work with.
