What is Triple P?
The Triple P – Positive Parenting Program is one of the world’s most effective parenting programs. It is one of the few based on evidence from ongoing scientific research, with more than 230 trials and studies around the world showing it works – regardless of a family’s culture, country or situation.
Triple P works by giving parents the skills to raise confident, healthy children and teenagers, and to build stronger family relationships. It also helps parents manage misbehavior and prevent problems occurring in the first place. But it doesn’t tell people how to parent. Rather, it gives them simple and practical strategies they can adapt to suit their own values, beliefs and needs.
Triple P is also different because it is not “one-size-fits-all”. It’s a system that offers increasing levels of support to meet parents’ different needs. So parents can choose what works for them.
