    schema:description "This book captures the essence of how communities that better support healthy child development can be built. It includes a look at key elements of the Australian Communities for Children initiative, including the use of an approach taking into account community, government and family. How can the voices of children in decision-making processes that impact their futures be heard? How can the avalanche of electronic games, the information superhighway and social media be negotiated to support, educate and protect children living in an online world? What does it mean to use a whole of community approach to supporting families? How can government departments and non-government agencies work together with communities to provide the kind of support that effectively engages families so that the quality of parenting improves and results in healthy child development? What strategies can be developed in early childhood and school settings to improve family functioning? How can the integration of fragmented services be improved? While these are undoubtedly diverse questions, this kind of holistic viewpoint is necessary if inadequate, siloed approaches are to be redesigned and family friendly urban villages that deliver improved outcomes for children and families built."@en ;
