Bringing Up Great Kids

Developed and established by Australian Childhood Foundation in 2005, Bringing Up Great Kids (BUGK) is a long-running and acclaimed program with more than 4,000 registered facilitators trained nationally. It has had more than 50,000 parents benefit from it since it started.

The BUGK Program is an integrated suite of activities and tools that are unique and offer all parents and carers a fresh way to understand and enact relationships with their children.

It focuses on building positive and nurturing relationships between parents and their children. The program aims to support parents to review and enhance their patterns of communication with their children, to promote more respectful interactions and encourage the development of children’s positive self-identity.

Black Box

Black Box Parenting is a non-blaming program developed specifically for the challenges of parenting after violence.

Trauma has an incredibly damaging effect on a young, developing brain. Trauma and violence significantly impact attachment and a child’s sense of security.

This can directly influence a child’s behaviour. The program helps parents manage their feelings, and trains them to help their child navigate and regulate their emotions. Includes strategies for play to enable a child to give voice to their emotions.

The Black Box program is delivered over 5 x 2hr group sessions
