You & your child » Welcome to parenting
Congratulations on the birth of your baby.
Parenting is a journey and one of the most important and rewarding things you can do. How children are parented has a life-long effect on their health and wellbeing.
Every child needs love, warmth, guidance, understanding, limits and boundaries to grow up to be happy, healthy and caring.
Parenting requires support from family, whānau and friends. Understanding how children grow and develop will help you understand how your child learns and sees the world.
Enjoy and have fun with your child.
