How We Help
Being a parent is one of life’s most rewarding experiences – but it can also be the most challenging.
How Parent Line Works
If you need some help or support or just want to talk through a parenting issue, our counsellors are here for you.
Parent Line counsellors provide confidential and non-judgmental advice and support for parents, carers or professionals living in NSW, seven days a week.
Being a parent is a universal experience for many people. While each child (and their family) is unique, there are many common themes. Hearing other parents’ stories can be a source of comfort and can help us to feel less alone. It can also be a great way to get new ideas, strategies and hope that things can be different in our own families.
