A valuable addition to the wide range of programming offered by the Regina ELC, the Positive Parenting Program (Triple P) is a flexible, practical way to develop skills, strategies, and confidence to handle any parenting situation. It’s backed by decades of research, and it has already helped millions of children and their parents.
Triple P works by giving parents the skills to raise confident, healthy children and teenagers, and to build stronger family relationships. It also helps parents manage misbehavior and prevent problems from occurring in the first place.
It is a parenting program, but it doesn’t tell people how to be a parent. It’s more like a toolbox of ideas. You choose the strategies you need. You choose the way you want to use them. Triple P gives parents simple and practical strategies they can adapt to suit their own values, beliefs, and needs.
Triple P is also different because it is not one-size-fits-all. It’s a system that offers increasing levels of support to meet parents’ different needs. So parents can choose anything from one-off public seminars or self-help books to more detailed group courses or individual sessions.
Triple P is based on evidence from ongoing scientific research. There have been more than 200 evaluation papers, including 104 randomized controlled studies, which show that Triple P works for most families in a variety of cultures, countries, and family situations.
In Regina, Triple P is delivered through the RELC’s Early Years Family Resource Centre at 3059 – 5th Ave. For our Triple P team’s contact info, visit www.earlylearning.ca/staff-listing.
