The parenthood support programme is a useful tool to help parents face the difficulties entailed in their role. Such difficulties can worsen in crucial moments of parents' lives, in stressful situations, in specific phases of children's lives, such as adolescence and preadolescence, in conjunction with events that affect the entire family, such as migration, grief of separation traumas. Parenthood difficulties can also rise because of unsolved problems in family and couple relationships.

In general, this support programme consists in meetings with a psychologist and, in some cases, with a social assistant.
