Triple P – Positive Parenting Programs

Positive Parenting Programs are designed to help parents improve their parenting skills and build positive relationships with their children.

Because parents all have different needs, Triple P has many different ways to get positive parenting help. You choose what is best for you and your family. Below is a list of Triple P programs and our trained Early Learning Specialists who are available to provide support.  For a full list of Triple P programs please visit Triple P Courses for Parents of Children Birth-12 years

You’re divorced or separated. Your child is caught in the middle. You may have problems with your extended family, your new partner or your ex. Holidays and birthdays cause arguments. You may be concerned about your finances. And you’re worried about the impact this is all having on your child’s behaviour and emotions. If any of this sounds familiar, Family Transitions Triple P can help

Fear-Less Triple Parenting will introduce parents and caregivers to key anxiety-management strategies that support children with anxiety. Topics that will be covered include understanding how anxiety works, knowing how to help your child develop coping skills and to face feared situations, and successfully managing children’s anxious behaviours.

If your child is experiencing signs of anxiety, email early.on@nullsocialenterprise.ca to set up a consultation to see if this program is the right fit for you.

Being a parent should be easier than this! Perhaps you can’t take your daughter shopping because she throws a tantrum every time. Or maybe you have a child who makes bedtime a nightmare. Or a son who never seems to listen to anything you tell him to do.

If your child has a particular behaviour problem that is making family life more difficult than it should be, then Primary Care Triple P can help. Primary Care Triple P gives guidance that is tailored to help you with specific issues.

You have a child with an intellectual or physical disability, and life is incredibly tough. Your child may seem unwilling or unable to follow instructions or master new skills. Perhaps they have terrible tantrums or emotional meltdowns. Maybe they can’t make friends or play with their siblings.

As for you, stress is a constant. Holding down a job may be too difficult. You may feel isolated from your friends, your community – perhaps even from your partner or your other children. You possibly feel guilty and don’t know how to tackle your child’s problem behaviour. If the pressure of raising a child with a special need is straining your family life, Stepping Stones Triple P may help.

The Triple P Discussion Group Series includes parent discussion groups on commonly encountered problems such as disobedience, fighting and aggression, and managing situations such as shopping with children and bedtime. The discussion groups are designed to provide an overview of the positive parenting principles for any interested parent. Parents are actively involved throughout the 2-hour small group format discussions.

Triple P for Baby aims to prepare parents for a positive transition to parenthood and the first year with the baby, by promoting sensitive and responsive care.
