The helpline is for anyone who is a parent not just mums and dads, but relatives, friends and foster carers. The website offers confidential information and emotional support, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Issues can include problems coping with babies and toddlers, to teenage issues such as anti-social or risky behaviour, bullying, discipline and the impact of divorce. Callers to the helpline can talk through how to deal with a particular problem or simply 'let off steam'. If necessary, further help can be given in the form of a weekly call from a support worker, or refer onto another organisation that can give more specialist help.
