You are doing the most important job there is. It’s rewarding, but sometimes it’s tough. This Children’s Day we encourage families everywhere to treasure their children. When you’re a parent that might mean:
We all have a role to play in treasuring our children. No one needs to do the big job of being a parent by themselves. Friends and family are the best people to lend a helping hand.
“Honestly, the best thing for me was one time I was so stressed out, and my mum said to me, ‘You’re doing a great job, you’re a great mum.” Kiri – mum and daughter
“As parents we all have different needs. My friend down the road is a single mum, so we have her boy over every Wednesday, just to give her some time out. But she helps us out by looking after my girl when we’re working.” Rochelle – mum and friend
Organisations everywhere are showing their support by organising Children’s Day events for the children and families in their community.
