Parenting advice can come from every direction and can be completely overwhelming at times. Lack of sleep, limited support and low confidence can contribute to having a tough time when you are new to parenting and sometimes even if you have done it all before. All families are different and all babies are unique, what works for one doesn’t always work for another.
I am a registered child and family health nurse with 20 years of experience working with children and families. An even greater qualification is that I have 3 biological children and have raised 2 step children. As a family we have been through many stages of family life and parenting stress. I can tell you that even with my nursing background I still struggled with many aspects of parenting at times. There are no clear cut answers, no guide book that will answer every question and no such thing as perfect parenting. What I can tell you is that there are some parenting elements that will make a positive difference on the way we experience parenting and the way we raise our children no matter what our situation, culture or experience.
We take a nurturing approach to parenting at CHILD SA, we aim to listen and seek to understand your needs and the needs of your family. We respect diversity and recognise that it is not always easy asking for help. We support a gentle parenting approach and work together with you to build healthy little brains and bodies.
