Parenting for Lifelong Health: COVID-19 (2020)

Jun 22nd 2021

Parenting for Lifelong Health (PLH) provides open-source and evidence-based playful parenting resources to support parents and caregivers during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. These resources focus on building positive parent-child relationships and reducing violence against children by learning through play, reinforcing positive and managing difficult behaviours, creating structure and routines, talking about COVID-19, keeping children safe online, and reducing stress and conflict. Available from the World Health Organisation and UNICEF, the downloadable sheets contain great advice condensed from their non-commercial evidence-based parenting programmes. 

These resources are a partnership between Parenting for Lifelong Health, WHO, UNICEF, the Internet of Good Things, US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), USAID and the Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children. The tips are available in over 100 languages, access them here.
