Parenting support

Are you a parent or another adult who has parental responsibility for one or more children aged 0-18 years? Would you like advice and support in your parental role?

As a parent you play an important role in the development and health of your child or children. Being a parent often involves both joy and sorrow, and sometimes you will need information or guidance in your parental role. All parents can receive support when their children are aged between 0 and 18 years.

Naturally you as the parent know your child best. But it can be good to know where you can receive support should you need it.

Parenting support may mean receiving advice and guidance on different issues. This could include

  • setting boundaries
  • children and the Internet
  • the bond you have with your child
  • your relationship with the other parent or other adults
  • food and health
  • the school routine
  • tobacco, alcohol and drugs
  • leisure activities

It could also mean you are able to meet other parents and share thoughts and experiences on your child’s upbringing and your parental role.

Everyone who has a parental role can receive support. For example:

  • parents
  • step parents
  • close relatives
  • family home parents
  • a contact person
  • another adult who is close to the child

Here are the types of support you can receive

Supervised parent group

As a parent, you will meet other parents in a group a number of times, together with a leader. You will exchange knowledge and experience with one another.
