Triple P (Positive Parenting Program) is a program that helps to take the guesswork out of parenting. The program, which is one of the most effective, evidence-based programs in the world, is built around five simple and practical strategies;
- Create a safe and interesting environment
- Have a positive learning environment
- Use assertive discipline
- Have realistic expectations
- Take care of yourself as a parent
These strategies help parents to teach behaviour and values to kids – How to share, how to be a good friend, how to listen to and follow parents/carers instructions.
Not only does positive parenting help kids to develop into young adults that are confident and resilient, who engage well with others, and who have fewer behavioural and emotional challenges, it also has great outcomes for parents.
Positive parenting helps parents to feel more confident in their role as parent and less stressed.
The positive parenting strategies flex to suit your family, your values, your style, your needs and, most importantly, you child.
