UNICEF and the EU in Montenegro celebrate Parenting Month

Montenegro

To mark Parenting Month, UNICEF has organised a presentation of programmes that support parents in performing their important roles. In cooperation with the Delegation of the European Union to Montenegro, two programmes – Caring Families and the Bebbo app – intended for parents of the youngest children were presented at Europe House.

 

The Caring Families programme has been running in Montenegro for four years now, with participation of more than 700 parents. The programme evaluation results indicate that it has contributed to a 70% reduction in harsh and violent parenting and significant (31%) reductions in behavioural problems in children and parental depression (45%).

 

The Bebbo app was presented by UNICEF Montenegro’s Early Childhood Development Officer, Ida Ferdinandi, who was joined by Maja Miranović, a mother who has been using the app for a long time. The app provides parents of children under the age of six with reliable information on various topics, such as health, nutrition, breastfeeding, safety, early learning and positive parenting.

 

The Caring Families programme and the Bebbo app have been implemented in Montenegro with the support of UNICEF and the financial support of the European Union.
