What is Triple P?

(This is an extract from the families.nsw.gov site)

“The Triple P program is not telling us how to be a parent; it’s giving us the tools to be better at it.” Louise, mum of two.

Kids don’t come with an instruction manual. Whether you’re a mum, dad, single parent family, step parenting or a carer – the Triple P positive parenting program can help you with a specific problem, or provide tips on parenting and help with understanding your child’s development and behaviour.

The Triple P positive parenting program is for parents with children aged 3–8 years. The program gives you the tools to:

  • encourage behaviour you like from your child
  • deal positively and consistently with problem behaviour
  • take the stress out of parenting.

Triple P can also help to develop family relationships assisting children to reach their full potential.

Developed by the University of Queensland Parent and Family Support Centre, Triple P parent groups have helped families in Australia and throughout the world for more than 30 years.
