The Good Parents is the second full-length novel written by Joan London. It was first published in 2008.

The book concerns an eighteen-year-old girl, Maya de Jong, who moves to Melbourne and becomes involved in a relationship with her boss. When Maya's parents come to Melbourne to stay with her, they find that Maya has disappeared.[1] London says of the role of parents with older children, "There's nothing much you can do, except wait and be there".[2]
