COMMUNICATIONS NEWS: Parenting helpline approaches media

A parenting charity has started a media initiative to raise awareness of its work in helping parents and carers after divorce.

More than 42 per cent of calls made to Parentline Plus' helpline involve separation and its impact on children. The Contact Counts initiative highlights the most common difficulties confronting divorced parents and carers, such as differing ideas on discipline, and explains how the charity can help.

Parentline Plus is contacting TV programmes such as Kilroy, as well as local newspapers and radio, to see if they are interested in covering parenting issues.

"We need to let parents know that there is information available on and support for negotiating workable contract arrangements," said Dorit Braun, chief executive of Parentline Plus.
