Parents play a critical role in their children's development and learning. This resource sheet examines what we know about programs for Australian Indigenous families that effectively support parenting in the early years. It reviews parenting and home-visiting programs in general, and then focuses on the evidence for programs aimed at Indigenous families. It outlines what works, what doesn't, and what further research is needed. This resource sheet also discusses the promising practices and recommendations of the Secretariat of National Aboriginal and Islander Child Care.
