Triple P (Positive Parenting Program)
Triple P - Positive Parenting Program - offers support for parents and people caring for children ages 0-12 years old. Some parents are just seeking brief advice on how to handle minor disobedience, or on surviving toilet training. Others may need more support as they learn positive ways to deal with their child's sever or aggressive behaviors.
Triple P is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the World Health Organization, and it is currently used in more than 20 countries and 27 US states.
While Triple P is a parenting program, it does not tell parents how to be a parent. Instead, it is a toolbox of ideas. Parents can choose the strategy they feel may work best for them and choose the way they want to use them. It's all about making Triple P work for the parent.
