WHO and partners release tips for positive parenting during COVID-19 confinement

Globally, there are now nearly 1.4 billion children out of school and at home due to COVID-19. In homes with high levels of stress, there are increasing risks that children experience or observe violence within their families. To help parents interact constructively with their children during this time of confinement, the Parenting for Lifelong Health consortium, of which WHO is a founding member, together with colleagues from WHO, UNICEF, US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Internet of Good Things, US Agency for International Development and the End Violence Partnership, have released six one-page tips for parents on:

 

  • planning one-on-one time
  • staying positive
  • creating a daily routine
  • avoiding bad behavior
  • managing stress
  • talking about COVID-19

 

These evidence-based materials for parents of children of all ages are currently being translated into more than 50 languages.

Reducing harsh parenting practices and creating positive parent-child relationships are among the strategies reflected in the technical package INSPIRE: seven strategies for ending violence against children
