Free Parenting Tips & Resources

In this section, you will find free downloadable parenting tip sheets. Written by Child Psychiatrist Dr Kaylene Henderson, these research-based resources have been developed for:

  • Parents of young children wishing to read, save, print or share these useful parenting tips;
  • Childcare centres and early years educators wishing to print and provide these tips to parents; The printable tip sheets also make perfect newsletter inserts.

These tip sheets link with the National Quality Standards: Quality Areas 2, 5 and 6 and the Early Years Learning Framework: Principles: 1, 2 3, and 5 and Learning Outcomes 1, 3, 4 and 5.

Sharing these with parents to aid collaboration also links with the NQS Quality Area 6 and Domains 3 and 7 of the Australian Teachers Professional Standard.
