The Positive Parenting Program (Triple P Group)

Triple P Flyer

The Triple P - Positive Parenting Program® is one of the world’s most effective parenting programs. With more than 30 years of ongoing research, Triple P has been scientifically trialed with thousands of families around the world and been found to work for most families within a wide variety of cultures, countries, and individual situations. Triple P has helped more than four million children and their families in 25 countries around the world. Triple P is a great opportunity to meet other parents in similar situations – other parents who’ll support you and share stories with you.

8-week workshops are available for two age groups to:

  • Encourage behavior you like
  • Deal with problem behavior
  • Become confident as a parent
  • Be realistic about parenting
  • Take care of yourself as a parent

Usually, each session lasts no more than two hours at a time. In all, you’ll attend no more than five group sessions – the first four should give you the tips you need to start positive parenting.

Then, you’ll have three weeks to practice Teen Triple P at home. Your Triple P provider will call you every week at a set time to find out how you’re doing and offer advice if you’re having any trouble. Those calls will last about 15 minutes.

Finally, you’ll meet up with your group and Triple P provider for one last session. This is a chance to go over any problems you may still have – and to congratulate yourself on how far you’ve come!
