Triple P – Positive Parenting Program
It’s not only children and teenagers who benefit from positive parenting. It also makes family life more enjoyable, easier and more rewarding for parents.
More and more parents understand that it’s okay to ask for help and, in Queensland, positive parenting support to suit every family is free for any parent or carer of a child up to 16 years old.
The Triple P – Positive Parenting Program is used around the world and was developed right here in Queensland. It helps parents to raise children and teenagers who will grow up to be happier and healthier. Thousands of Queensland parents have already done Triple P and recommend it.
No matter what stage of life your child is at – or what challenges you’re facing – Triple P can help you learn simple but proven ways to give them the best opportunity to reach their full potential.
Triple P makes it easier to manage the common day-to-day challenges of parenting by offering practical skills and tools to help parents:
- develop positive relationships so you can get along well with your kids and argue less
- effectively set family routines and rules that work
- manage problem behaviour and support positive behaviour
- raise well-adjusted, emotionally resilient children
- balance work and family with less stress
- create a happier, safer, more supportive family so you can be the parent you want to be.
There's also a new program specifically to help with supporting children's anxiety management skills.
What support is available?
It’s totally up to you. Triple P offers a range of seminars, group workshops and one-on-one consultations delivered as either:
- one-off sessions
- part of a series over several weeks or months, or
- Triple P Online or Teen Triple P Online (self-paced online courses)
- Fear-Less Triple P Online, for parents of children or teenagers who are especially anxious.
You can choose as much or as little help as you like – depending on your individual preferences and situation – and you choose which strategies you'd like to try at home.
How can I do Triple P for free?
- Start doing Triple P Online , Teen Triple P Online or Fear-Less Triple P Online at any time.
