Parent Webinars

Parents face a myriad of challenges today.

Many of these issues have not changed over time, such as dealing with moody adolescents during puberty or helping kids be the best they can be. While others, like keeping children safe online, are new.

Parents now have access to a wealth of information to help them understand and respond to the complex range of issues associated with raising children, as well as experts ready to help arm them with well-researched strategies and considered advice.

The Queensland Independent Schools Parents Network has collaborated with the Independent Schools Digital Collaboration Network to support a range of parent webinars with leading experts on key areas of concern for parents.
