Discover Hāpai Whanau
The word Hapai comes from te reo Māori. It means to empower, lift up, support.
We are a charity created to support families on their journey of relationship with their children.
Hapai Whanau’s parenting courses weave science with your own wisdom so you and your family can flourish.
Enjoying relationship with your children
The goal of every parent
We all want to enjoy relationships with our children. We want to enjoy the journey, and in time, love being around our adult children. While we imagine having perfect children might be nice, what we really want are enjoyable, healthy relationships.
“They’re such a great group of people and provide so much aroha and respect to anyone that comes into the group. Thank you guys so much for everything, I enjoyed every part and can’t wait to see you all next time when baby is out”
