Candice Cleave and Roana Archbold completed Tūpuna Parenting, a nine-month kaupapa Māori parenting programme. Tūpuna Parenting is a movement to decolonise our parenting to reclaim our parenting ways. Our tūpuna believed pēpi were born tapu and born with mana. With this tapu and mana, they believed that our pēpi and tamariki were little people to be listened to and respected.
With the sharing of this wisdom, Te Puawaitanga is currently exploring the creation of a kaupapa Māori programme. Stay tuned for more information.
