From toddler tantrums to teenage rebellion, Triple P - Positive Parenting Program helps parents manage the big and small issues that are a normal part of family life.

Triple P helps parents raise kids who are cooperative, make friends easily and do well at school. It helps parents become more confident, less stressed and get on better with their partners. With Triple P, parents choose a program that fits their needs.

Choices include:

  • one-off seminars or workshops
  • private consultations with providers
