On 28 November, we will launch the Parenting Today in Victoria study which shows what Victoria’s parents are thinking, feeling and doing about parenting today.

The Hon. Jenny Mikakos MP, Minister for Families and Children, Youth Affairs and Early Childhood Education, will open the event, to be chaired by Parenting Research Centre Board Chair Mr Tass Mousaferiadis.

Parenting Research Centre CEO Warren Cann and Principal Research Specialist Dr Catherine Wade will be joined by a panel of leading experts, who will discuss the importance of the survey results for policy and for children: Professor Jane Fisher, Director, Jean Hailes Research Unit, Clinical Professor David Bennett, Department of Adolescent Medicine, Westmead Children's Hospital; and Ms Kim Little, Assistant Deputy Secretary, Early Childhood Portfolio, Department of Education and Training.

Policymakers, researchers and practitioners in the health, education and welfare sectors will hear about key findings from the comprehensive parent survey, including that 91% said they had confidence in themselves as a parent and 28% felt they were sometimes too critical of their children.
