The Parenting in a New Culture – the preschool age was a project initiated and developed by the Spectrum Migrant Resource Centre (MRC) and funded through the Australian Government Department of Family and Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaCSIA) through the Early Intervention Program Strategy, which was completed mid-2004. The project targeted migrant community groups whose cultural and social values regarding parenting and families are quite different from mainstream Australian cultural and social values and norms.
The aim of the project is to increase the parenting skills of new migrant parents within three migrant and refugee community groups in the context of the new Australian social and educational environments and for the benefit of their young children through:
- Strengthening and supporting parents roles and producing positive parenting outcomes.
- Piloting and delivery of specific parenting orientation programs and skills development for parents of Pre School aged children from the three community groups.
- Development of culturally and linguistically relevant parenting program targeting newly arrived emerging community groups.
A major outcome of the project was the development of three parenting guidebooks in the respective community language as well as the English language.
