Triple P - Positive Parenting Program
Parenting isn't always easy, Triple P is here to help!
You love your kids. So why's it sometimes so hard to love being a parent at times?
There is a lot of pressure to know how to parent. Kids don't come with directions. Families grow as you learn together, figure out how to get along, set rules and work on problems together. It's normal to feel tired along the way, but we don't usually talk about how hard parenting is. Every day brings new things, and it can seem like you're always running low on time, on sleep, or on patience. It's no wonder that so many parents feel stressed, but there's good news: Triple P can help.
You have choices
Triple P is for parents with children ages 0-12 years of age.
Triple P providers won't tell you how to be a parent. They will offer ideas that work for other families. Together, we will work to find tools that work for your family. You'll find all kinds of ideas, from help raising toddlers to learning how to cope with tough problems at home. With Triple P, the choices are yours.
- Find the right level of support
- Set your own priorities and goals
- Decide what works for your family
- Change ideas to meet your family's needs

Want to boost your skills and confidence? Need help tackling a specific problem? Get insights into your child's behavior and gain some skills to try at home with Triple P seminars, workshops, and discussion groups. These events provide parents with a friendly place to learn, share and seek out support.
