Triple P - Parenting Program
Triple P is a parenting program used across Canada and around the world. Triple P provides tools and strategies you can use, but it doesn’t tell you how to parent. It’s more like a toolbox of ideas. You choose the tools and strategies you need and you choose the way you want to use them.
Whether you need a few tips to help set up a toddler’s bedtime routine or you have a teenager going through life-changes that feel unmanageable for you, Triple P has a positive parenting approach to fit your needs.
