Triple P takes the guesswork out of parenting
When it comes to raising kids, everyone has an opinion. There are so many ideas out there. So how do you know what’s best and what works? Triple P-Positive Parenting Program-takes the guesswork out of parenting, supporting parents and caregivers as they embark on their parenting journey.
Triple P gives parents simple tips to help manage the big and small problems of family life. Problems like toddler tantrums or teenage rebellion. Self-esteem issues. Bedtime battles. Disobedience. Aggression. Triple P can help you deal with them all – and more! And Triple P is one of the few parenting programs in the world with evidence to show it works for most families.
For further information, please call 403-207-7050 or visit the Alberta Triple P Stay Positive website to search for sessions. All sessions are offered free of charge to all parents, caregivers, grandparents and foster parents.
|Group Triple P|| Is this you? Other parents don't seem to have it as tough as you. Your child constantly misbehaves. Your family life is full of frustration, anger and tears. There's probably a lot of shouting and your child may even even be aggressive-perhaps hitting you, the furniture or his brothers and sisters. In fact, everyday, from breakfast to bedtime, is a battle. If this sounds familiar, the Group Triple P can help. Group Triple P gives you support to help manage your child's behaviour and prevent the kinds of problems that make your family life stressful.
What happens at Group Triple P?
Group Triple P is a great opportunity to meet other parents in similar situations-other parents who will support you and share stories with you.
From the start, you will be given tips and suggestions to fit the needs of your family. You'll see scenes from the Every Parent's Survival Guide DVD, which show you how the ideas work in real life. And your workbook will give you the tools and information you need to start positive parenting right away at home. Your Triple P practitioner will guide you every step of the way and even provide backup phone support as you put your new skills into practice.
| Seminar and Tween
| Seminar Series
Most of the time, parenting is fun. You know you are doing a good job. But there are times when things get a little tricky. Like when your toddler won't eat her dinner. Or your six year old won't pick up his toys. If only someone could give you some ideas to make those times easier! If this sounds like you, then a Triple P seminar might be right for you.
There are three seminars in the Triple P series: The Power of Positive Parenting, Raising Confident Competent Children and Raising Resilient Children.
Each seminar is about 90 minutes.
Tween Seminar Series
There are three different seminar topics in the Tween Triple P series-Raising Responsible Teenagers, Raising Competent Teenagers, and Getting Teenagers Connected. Seminars help parents learn how to maintain positive relationships with their children, encourage responsibility and self-discipline, all the while supporting them throughout the transition to adulthood.
These are informal presentations that tackle the most common issues for parents of children ages birth-16 years.
|Discussion Group|| Triple P can encourage the behaviour you like, deal with problem behaviour, and boost your confidence as a parent. All parents will receive developmental & child management advice on specific issues, practical parenting ideas, and take-home group workbooks.
Discussion Group covers four topics; Managing Disobedience, Hassle-Free Shopping with Your Children, Developing Good Bedtime Routines, and Managing Fighting and Aggression.
