Struggling with the challenges of being a parent? Hotline support is available in New Zealand

How you parent makes a big difference not just to your children today, but to how they will be in the future too. This can be a major pressure for any parent. If this is you, help is available. Volunteers and counselors at 6 parenting hotlines in New Zealand are there to listen and help you if you are struggling with:

  • Not agreeing with your partner about parenting approaches
  • Being afraid to let your child experience pain, disappointment, and frustration
  • Being unable to balance your career with family life
  • Not finding the right balance between who you are as an individual and a parent
  • Feeling overwhelmed with contradicting information about parenting you receive
  • You feel you might be approaching burnout because you have too much on your plate
  • You are unsure of how to instil good values in your children
  • Missing socializing and going out

Every parent has their own path to overcoming the daily challenges parenting brings. And every parent in the world had doubts about how to do it. It can feel scary to have to figure it all out. However, this is a natural response.

People in New Zealand are ready and available to help you on your parenting journey and support you to raise your family in a way that works for your unique situation.
