Time flies – making the most of every parenting moment helps equip children with the life skills they’ll need to learn, make healthy decisions, and reach their potential. It also helps build and maintain strong relationships, so we can stay close to our kids. Those relationships build open communication and trust, which will be important as they get older and face challenges and changes.
Now, it’s easy to get proven, practical, positive strategies that help parents and carers reduce stress and make the most of every parenting moment, even during stressful times. And a positive family environment helps give all kids a better chance of success in adult life!
You can tackle small problems before they grow, set up good habits early, and help kids express and cope with uncomfortable emotions (like anxiety, sadness, or anger) in healthy ways.
The Australian Government has funded Triple P to roll out the Parenting Education and Support Program (PESP), a new initiative that will run for at least three years aimed at providing free and easily accessible online parenting education and support to all parents and carers in Australia with children under 12 years.
The Triple P – Positive Parenting Program doesn’t tell you ‘how to be a parent’ – it gives you more understanding and builds on the skills and knowledge you already have.
Triple P is fully Australian – backed by research, proven by parents. It’s FREE, you can start now, and it’s all online: triplep-parenting.net.au
In Victoria, Triple P also offers Teen Triple P Online thanks to funding from the State Government. It’s a 6-module interactive program most suitable for parents of children aged 10 to 16 years old, including an online parent workbook, videos, exercises, downloadable tip sheets, emails, podcasts, and optional text reminders.
The program can be used to provide immediate support to parents on a waitlist as well as first-line treatments for families awaiting more intensive intervention, for those unsure about in-person intervention, or for those who prefer a self-managed, flexible treatment option.
