Triple P is a parenting programme, but it doesn’t tell you how to be a parent. It’s more like a toolbox of ideas. You choose the strategies you need. You choose the way you want to use them. It’s all about making Triple P work for you.

WHAT DOES TRIPLE P DO?
The three Ps in ‘Triple P’ stand for ‘Positive Parenting Programme’ which means your family life is going to be much more enjoyable.

Triple P helps you:

Raise happy, confident kids
Manage misbehaviour so everyone in the family enjoys life more
Set rules and routines that everyone respects and follows
Encourage behaviour you like
Take care of yourself as a parent
Feel confident you’re doing the right thing
