Religion may often play a significant role in the parenting goals, style, and practices of parents and can be fundamental to shaping family functioning. Religion is a potential resource for parents and can help parents cope better when facing challenging circumstances, such as times of war, and in contexts of adverse circumstances, including displacement and poverty, and also in caring for a disabled child. Taking steps to understand a family’s religious inclinations and how these interact with their parenting practices is a crucial first step in bridging religious motivations and positive parenting approaches. This chapter explores practical ways that families’ religious beliefs can be encompassed into the delivery of evidence-based parenting programs to increase engagement and acceptability and better inform development and delivery.
