The typical family that most of us grew up in (and saw on our beloved TV shows) has a new face today, having changed in terms of composition, size and embeddedness in the community. The 2021 census reveals that there are more than a million one-parent families, and nearly half of Australian children have at least one migrant parent. For new parents today, the responsibilities of parenthood, as well as the resources available to navigate those responsibilities, differ significantly from what they were even a decade ago. This calls for a sympathetic re-examination of parental support benefits and policies that organisations have in place.
