Who are we?

dadandson.jpgThe Positive Parenting Network of Australia (ABN 98 090 685 700) is an alliance of professional educators who passionately believe in the importance of parenting.

We believe that despite its challenges parenting can be rewarding and fun. We help parents understand how to deal with misbehaving children in loving, positive ways and how they can bring peace to their families.

The PPN provides classes, workshops, consultations, training and resources to equip parents to enjoy parenting, to become positive in their approaches to their children, and to develop a confident, caring, balanced parenting style. All of our presentations utilise a mixture of teaching methods to cover the three learning styles (visual, audio, and kinaesthetic) so that parents can see, hear and roleplay new parenting methods.
