Background/aim: Parental education programs protect children and adolescents from negative outcomes. A sur-vey study to estimate the knowledge that mothers and fa-thers have about parenting programs was designed. Method: 2169 parents participated, of which 71.28% (n=1546) were cohabiting mothers, 9.5% (n=206) were separated or divorced mothers, 17.52% (n=380) were cohabiting fathers, and 1.71% (n=37) were separated or divorced parents, responded to the International Parent Survey. Results: The results suggest that the participants are unaware of the existence of parenting support pro-grams, few have participated in any of the programs, the best known parenting program is the one that has been broadcast by a television channel, the most frequently mentioned reasons by all parents for not having partici-pated in a parenting program are not considering them necessary and lack of information about their existence, those who have not participated in parenting programs are less satisfied with the information available on parenting and the support services available to them as parents, parents in a relationship break-up are those who feel the greatest need for proper parenting training, parents disa-gree with physical punishment as a discipline technique; and parents consider that parenting and discipline is a pri-vate family matter. Conclusions: It concludes on the need to disseminate, from different areas, the benefits of the exercise of positive co-parenting for all members of the family, and among children, as well as the need to be trained and receive support to exercise it properly.
