Triple P Parenting, also known as The Power of Positive Parenting, is an internationally acclaimed evidence-based system of parenting interventions for families with children 2-12 years. Kids don't come with an instruction manual! Many familiar parenting problems have very simple solutions that can be applied with some effort and focus. This program can help you reduce family stress, become a more confident parent, create an organized, orderly family routine with good ground rules that everyone knows and follows, and enjoy a more harmonious family environment.
