Putting children first: Changing the way we frame parenting in Australia

Add value and power to your work by learning how to frame and become part of a growing network that is using framing to change the world for kids and families.

As a strong and passionate sector, we are all on a journey to create a nation that values children and gives parents the support they need. But how do we make sure that all Australians join us on this journey? And how can social science help us to create the necessary social change that children need?

Ground-breaking new research commissioned by the Parenting Research Centre from the Frameworks Institute (US) has highlighted the power of framing when it comes to improving child wellbeing in Australia.

NAPCAN’s Q&A Forum will use this research to launch a broader discussion about how we support parents with the right policies and build collective responsibility with the right communication.

Join our national and local experts for a fresh, bold conversation including:
• The power of the child development frame to effect positive change
• How supporting parents is the key to improving child wellbeing
• Real-life examples of how the research is changing the way we work
• Why myths and metaphors matter, and why images of boats and lighthouses are popping up all over the place.

Speakers include:
Annette Michaux, Director, Parenting Research Centre
Mal Galbraith, Families and Schools Together (FAST)
Shanti Raman, NAPCAN Board Member and Paediatrician
