If your children’s behaviour is making life too stressful,

phone Parentline on 0800 432 6459

We will contact you as soon as possible.  Our goal is to support you to put a parent plan together that works for you.  There are lots of easy to use Triple P Positive Parenting strategies that can make this time so much easier, and a lot less stressful!

Our office is currently closed and will remain so until Manawatu is in Covid Level 2.

Our staff are all working from home and are available via telephone or email.

Some of our groups may be run via Zoom - please check under 'Groups and Counselling'   for status updates.

Our counsellors are maintaining contact with clients during lockdown.


Check out the page on our website called 'At Home With Kids During Covid-19.' You can find it at the top of the list under 'Groups and Counselling.' The links are still relevant in Level 1.

Do contact us if you’re feeling in need of support. 



 Governance Group

The Governance Group of Parentline Manawatu are looking for some additional members to assist in the important role of governing our organisation. We're looking for strategic thinkers who are capable of assisting in the development of policy and planning. Financial skills would be welcome and it is essential you have a commitment to parenting in positive & nurturing ways.

Membership is by a small subscription and Governance members are co-opted or voted in at our AGM.


You would be welcome to contact us to arrange to come along to meetings to see if this is for you.

This is a voluntary role.
