Child neglect and abuse is one of the most important problems of modern societies. Studies show that this problem continues to increase day by day in many developed and developing societies. In this context, a parent training program development project was carried out in order to prevent child neglect and abuse, supported by the Turkish National Agency within the scope of the Erasmus+ KA2 project. In this study, the development processes and theoretical bases of the Social Parent Education Platform, which was developed to bring together the educational content created within the scope of the project with the users and to provide parent education with social media-based content, are included.

Keywords: Child Neglect and Abuse, Social Media, Learning Management System, Adult Education
