Triple P – Positive Parenting Program
Parenting can be tough; single parenting can be tougher! But it can also be a LOT easier, more enjoyable, and less stressful, with tips and strategies that really work. A few small changes can make a big difference. Get everyone (even your ex-) on the same page. Triple P may even be free in your area, and you can also do it online!
There are Teen Triple P programs, if you have teenagers, as well as programs for parents of young kids. And there are group and individual programs, one-off and ongoing courses, and online programs that are ideal for time-poor single mums. Find out how to:
– stay calm rather than falling into the escalation trap
– set rules and routines that kids actually follow
– look after yourself as a parent
– be more confident in managing tricky situations.
