The adoption of a comprehensive population-based approach to parenting support means that effective parenting programs must truly be inclusive and relevant to all cultures. This chapter introduces a series of four chapters that explore how evidence-based parenting support can best respond to barriers and challenges and embrace cultural diversity in families everywhere. Themes emerging from this content include the importance of understanding and respecting parents’ beliefs and values, the flexible and responsive delivery of evidence-based parenting programs, and collaboratively working toward shared goals. Considerable conceptual and empirical work is being undertaken in the area of parenting support for families of diverse cultural backgrounds. This work provides optimism for the positive impact that evidence-based parenting programs will have in the coming years for children, families, and communities globally.
