To help prevent violence and abuse against children during the COVID-19 pandemic, in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), UNICEF and other leading agencies, Parenting for Lifelong Health (PLH) provides open-source and evidence-based parenting resources to support parents, caregivers, teachers, nurses, and others in keeping children safe under all circumstances.
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.
Check out the wide range of other parenting resources that are being continuously developed and adapted to different types of internet access to reach all population groups from low and high income countries.
The parenting tip sheets are available in 100+ languages and can be downloaded to be shared online and/or printed.
