Resource package



This resource package includes 12 Parent easy guides (PEGs) developed for Aboriginal people. The guides provide valuable and practical information on many of the issues faced by parents when raising children from birth through to adolescence. Some of the topics covered include:

The guides are easy to read and follow a similar layout; each guide begins with a quote or setting, followed by tips for help in relation to the topic, and finishing with a key message. Contact information for organisations who can offer further help is also provided in each guide.

When to use this resource

These guides are a useful resource for parents, guardians, and health professionals as they include valuable information that may help to build the skills and confidence of parents and other child carers. The guides can also be used to promote the importance of good parenting for children's and young people's social and emotional wellbeing. The guides may be a useful resource to have at local medical services or community centres for workers to hand out to parents and those caring for children.
