Description

This resource was created for Indigenous parents, families and community workers in the Illawarra and Shoalhaven regions of New South Wales. It provides information on good parenting and community practices such as cuddling, playing, singing, reading, listening, telling stories and talking, as well as giving information on what babies and children do at different ages, and examples of games and activities. This resource also provides contacts to help with parenting. Where possible, the resource uses Wandanian and Dharawal language and the term 'boori' is used to describe child/children.
