A South Sudanese Parenting Program was offered to Parents and Schools in Shepparton in September of 2018 at several locations. The program was seen to be important for imparting parenting skills to settlement families in this region.
Parenting involves a broad range of understanding and support for children, such as their physical, social, emotional, cultural needs and their intellectual developments. Migrating to a new country and culture comes with a lot of challenges. Almost inevitably, children are quickly absorbed into the educational system and start catching up with the new culture much faster than their parents.
