Bringing Up Great Kids

Bringing Up Great Kids

The ‘Bringing Up Great Kids’ (BUGK) program is an evidenced based group parenting program developed by the Australian Childhood Foundation (ACF).

The program is delivered over 6 weekly 2 hour sessions.

BUGK program and resources are underpinned by a philosophy of promoting and supporting respectful, caring and nurturing relationships between parents and their children. Parents and all other adults involved in the care of children, are encouraged to become more reflective and mindful in their parenting approach.

The Bringing Up Great Kids’ program supports parents and carers to:

• learn more about the origins of their own parenting style and how it can be more effective;
• identify the important messages they want to convey to their children and how to achieve this;
• learn more about brain development in children and its influence on their thoughts, feelings and behaviour;
• understand the meaning behind children’s behaviours, and how to respond to children’s underlying feelings and needs;
• explore new ways of communicating with children;
• discover ways for parents to take care of themselves and to find support when they need it.
