To reframe how we talk about parenting means beginning our communications with what children need to develop well, rather than what parents should do to be effective. It also means we must stop highlighting how hard parenting is, because that gets people stuck on problems rather than solutions. The research also shows a way forward on how to use metaphor to help explain that the external environment shapes parenting. It shows that describing the parenting experience using a navigating waters metaphor really resonates with the Australian public.

ARACY, Director of Policy and Practice, Annette Michaux covers the main points from the research in this webinar.
