Routines, tantrums, mealtimes, teachable moments, bedtime rituals, descriptive praise….the list goes on with the joys and challenges of parenting.
Many of the most common parenting questions have very simple solutions – and now, the Triple P – Positive Parenting Program is here to share those solutions with parents.
From toddler tantrums to a teenager’s defiance, from bedtime dramas to outright disobedience, Triple P helps parents sort through the issues that affect families everywhere.
Triple P is an internationally-recognized program that gives parents the skills they need to raise confident and healthy children, manage misbehavior and prevent problems happening in the first place.
Triple P works like a toolbox of great ideas. Parents choose the tools they need for their own situation – allowing them to create better relationships with their children, solve problems and become a more confident parent. Also, Triple P gives parents just the right amount of help they need, offering everything from one-off seminars and brief one-on-one sessions with a practitioner to detailed group courses and longer-term personal support.
Mecklenburg County Triple P launched in June 2013 with trainings offered by Mecklenburg County Public Health. To date, there are over 100 Triple P Practitioners trained throughout the community including social workers, early childhood education staff, mental health professionals, after school workers, community resource center staff, church personnel and more!
