The Triple P - Positive Parenting Program® is a parenting and family support system designed to equip parents with the tools they need to support and manage behavioural and emotional problems in children and teenagers.

Triple P doesn’t tell you how to parent. It’s more like a toolbox of ideas. You choose the strategies you need and the way you want to use them. It’s all about making Triple P work for you. By parenting in a positive way, you will learn how to manage poor behaviour. Your children will learn boundaries to help them develop calming techniques useful for their wellbeing.

It aims to prevent problems in the family, school and community before they arise and to create family environments that encourage children to realise their potential.
