The International Parent Survey (IPS) is a web based survey of parental views on various aspects of family life and parenting, which has been developed to address this gap in the population level assessment of parenting.  The aims of this collaborative survey project are to:

  • Strengthen links between international researchers working in the field of population based approaches to parenting intervention.
  • Establish cross-national baseline data on parenting practices, parenting needs and child emotional and behavioural adjustment, as well as parental participation, and investigating aids and barriers to engagement in parenting programs.
  • Create an international database on parent consumer preferences in relation to parenting interventions.
  • Give voice to all parents, including fathers and those from diverse cultural backgrounds, on their preferences in relation to parenting interventions.
