Parenting Talks: support your parent community

There is nothing better than encouraging a parent on their journey, except being able to encourage many parents... all at once! Our Parenting Talks are fun and inspiring events you can hold at your school, kindy, workplace or community space to inspire and equip whānau with practical skills and informed guidance on the big topics they’re navigating.

How it works

Parenting Talks cater to the preschool, primary, intermediate and high school years of parenting. Delivered by one of our trained presenters, Parenting Place talks contain relevant research, practical tips and strategies for parents to better understand and grow their skills and connection with their kids.

We adapt our presentations to suit the age group and audience, and we offer Parenting Talks in:

  • Workplaces
  • Schools
  • Kindergartens and ECEs
  • Community groups
  • Online
Hosting a Parenting Talk is a simple way for you to support and encourage your parents and caregivers, staff members or wider community, providing both connection with other parents and increased levels of confidence.
