What is Triple P?

Triple P suggests simple routines and small changes that can make a big difference to your family. It helps you understand the way your family works and uses the things you already say, think, feel and do in new ways that:

  • Create a stable, supportive and harmonious family
  • Encourage behaviour you like
  • Deal positively, consistently and decisively with problem behaviour
  • Build positive relationships with your children, so that conflict can be resolved
  • Plan ahead to avoid or manage potentially difficult situations
  • Take care of yourself as a parent.
