Pacific parenting

Kia Orana, Ni sa bula vinaka, Fakaalofa lahi atu, Talofa lava, Fakafeiloaki, Malo e lelei, Fakatalofa atu, Halo, Tēnā koutou katoa and warm Pacific greetings.

Each culture brings its own approach to parenting. Pacific families come in all shapes and sizes, and from different pacific nations – the many cultures that continue to nurture the village and raise awesome tamariki.

What we have in common is that we’re all Pasefika, we’re people of faith and we want to listen to stories of families so we can help them do something about it. It’s great to be able to be alongside so many who are like my parents – selfless and continuously putting others before themselves.
