Parentline is here for you

Parenting is a tough gig!

While it can be rewarding, it can also be puzzling, difficult and at times frustrating.

If you’re struggling, we’re here for you.

Parentline offers confidential phone and WebChat counselling and support for parents and carers of children in Queensland and the Northern Territory.

Our phones are open every day from 8am – 10pm, while WebChat is available every day from 8am – 9pm.

How can Parentline help me?

Sometimes you just need to talk to someone. Sometimes you need guidance.

You can talk to our qualified counsellors about anything to do with those challenges you’re facing as a parent or those issues affecting your family.

Whether it’s strategies for challenging behaviour, your relationship with your children, co-parenting guidance or mental health help, we’re here for you.

“It gave me the confidence to keep going through with a situation that was difficult – to keep going with what I was doing. It reaffirmed things I thought I knew and gave me some tips on some other ways to continue with. It was very clear advice and I got what I needed.”

– Amy, mother of two

What can I talk about?

For help managing unexpected problems with children

During times of crisis

Sharing an achievement or milestone

When needing someone who can listen and not judge during difficult family times

To put in place strategies to manage longer term problems with children
