Raising children has been officially declared Tasmania's biggest job, with a campaign launched to encourage parents and community members and highlight the important role they play in bringing up children.
Tasmania's Biggest Job is based on the knowledge that the first six years of life are crucial in a child's development, and that their experiences in these early years shape who they become. Parents and caregivers play a crucial role in their child's development at this age - but it isn't a job they have to do alone.
