Triple P Spring Term Dates January to March 2023

The current climate has raised new parenting challenges for everyone. Children and teenagers have experienced disruptions to their daily life and increased worries about their safety and that of their family and friends. Children can react in unexpected ways because they cannot express how they are feeling.

The Triple P – Positive Parenting Program’s simple, practical strategies have been proven to work around the world, helping parents raise happy, confident children; set family routines and rules that everyone can follow; and balance work and family life with less stress.

You want the best for your family — to set up your children and teenagers for success and create a happier, calmer family life. But when do you learn how to parent, how to parent a teenager? How do you raise successful children?

Triple P online could answer all your questions but still lets you choose the strategies that fit your family’s needs?
