What is Triple P?

Some of the most common parenting problems have very simple solutions – and now, the Triple P – Positive Parenting Program is here to share those solutions. Triple P is a world-acclaimed program that gives parents skills to raise confident, healthy children, manage misbehavior and prevent problems from happening in the first place. From toddler tantrums to a teenager’s defiance, from bedtime dramas to outright disobedience, Triple P helps parents sort through the big and small issues of family life. And the really good news is that Triple P does work. It’s got more than 30 years of ongoing scientific research to back it up and is now used in 25 countries.

Learning Objectives of the Training:

•   Understand your child’s emotional world by learning to read the emotional needs

•   Support your child’s ability to successfully manage emotions
