Triple P - Next Session starts Feb 5
Triple P is a Positive Parenting Program that promotes good communication and strong relationships between parents and children. This positive approach to parenting helps parents promote their children’s development and manage their children’s behaviour in a constructive and caring way. Triple P helps parents recognize causes of common child behaviour problems and encourage desirable behaviour in their children.
Triple P offers suggestions and ideas to help parents:
- build positive relationships with their children
- praise and encourage behaviour they like
- teach children new skills
- set rules and give instructions their children will follow
- respond to misbehaviour immediately, consistently and decisively
- use discipline strategies that work
- take care of themselves as parents
