The D’ARIN DJANUM Parenting Tips program is a collaborative between Cherbourg Health Service, CRAICCHS, Cherbourg Council and the University of Queensland.
The Triple P program known collectively as D’arin Djanum, which means ‘strong together’ in the Wakka Wakka language, has been headed up by Cherbourg Community Health clinical psychologist and project co-ordinator Arvind Ponnapalli.
D’arin Djanum promotes children’s social and emotional wellbeing and preparing them to thrive in the future is what every parent, family, and community wants.
We often draw upon parenting practices from previous generations that provided solutions to common parenting challenges. Parents and caregivers can also draw on cultural wisdom, family and community support, and positive parenting strategies that are proven to help child and family wellbeing.
