The influence of parenting on the well-being and future opportunities of children is widely acknowledged, but it is only recently that parenting support and education have come to be viewed as a social investment that contributes towards reducing parental stress and helping parents to manage their work–life balance. European Member States provide support for parenting in many different ways, from very practical medical-based interventions such as support with breastfeeding, to programmes that aim to increase the confidence and self-esteem of parents and thus improve their relationship with their children. This report gives an up-to-date overview of the main elements of parenting support services and the structure of services across Europe. It includes more detailed information about parenting support in seven Member States: Austria, Belgium, Estonia, Hungary, Ireland, Portugal and Sweden. The report summarises common challenges faced by all providers of parenting support, and concludes with policy recommendations based on what has been observed to work in different countries.

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound
    Bħala parti mir-riċerka kontinwa tagħha dwar il-familji u l-ħajja tax-xogħol, reċentement l-Eurofound wettqet ħidma fl-oqsma tal-appoġġ fit-trobbija tat-tfal u l-edukazzjoni għall-ġenituri. Ir-rapport li jirriżulta jipprovdi informazzjoni komparabbli dwar appoġġ lill-ġenituri fit-trobbija tat-tfal u servizzi ta’ edukazzjoni għall-familji bit-tfal, b'mod partikolari servizzi għall-familji bi tfal żgħar qabel l-età ta’ meta jibdew l-iskola. Ir-rapport jibbaża ruħu fuq informazzjoni miġbura minn reviżjoni tal-letteratura u fuq seba’ rapporti ta’ pajjiżi li eżaminaw l-għoti tas-servizz fl-Awstrija, fil-Belġju, fl-Estonja, fl-Ungerija, fl-Irlanda, fil-Portugall u fl-Isvezja. Kull rapport tal-pajjiż jinkludi studji ta’ każijiet ta' servizzi li ntużaw bħala linja gwida biex jiddeterminaw x’jaħdem tajjeb.
