Triple P helps take guesswork out of parenting

Positive Parenting Program helps parents encourage behaviour they want to see

Agassiz Harrison Community Services is pleased to once again offer Triple P (Positive Parenting Program). This program is available to families living in the Agassiz, Harrison Hot Springs, Seabird Island communities. Triple P helps parents encourage behaviour they want to see, deal with problem behaviour appropriately, become confident as a parent, be realistic about parenting and take time for yourself.

Both Triple P Seminars and Group Triple P are being offered in Agassiz. Seminars are a noncommittal opportunity to learn basic strategies to help with parenting and learn how to raise confident and resilient children. Parents share similar stories and help one another problem solve during the question period at the end. Parents leave the seminars with quality take home information.

Group Triple P is an eight-week program consisting of four group classes on positive parenting, three weeks to practice Triple P techniques with phone calls from your practitioner and the last group session concludes Triple P by problem solving any remaining struggles and celebrating participants’ successes. Classes are a great way to meet other parents and hear stories of similar situations. Often times, parents feel like they are the only ones going through tough and stressful times with their children. Parents soon realize they are not alone. Parenting is a tough job that does not come with a manual. Triple P helps take the guesswork out of parenting.

Triple P gives you support to help you manage your child’s behaviour and prevent the kinds of problems that make family life stressful. You may not have those problems; you may just want to learn more positive parenting techniques to help create a resilient and confident child within a happy home environment. If you are interested in learning how Triple P can help transform your parenting and your family for the better then Group Triple P is ideal.

There will be a Group Triple P coming up after Spring Break starting Wednesday April 8 from 6-8 p.m. at Family Parenting Place, 7272 Morrow Rd. There will be four classes held on April, 8, 15, 22, 29. Three weeks to practice the strategies with phone calls for check-ins and a final class on May 27. To register or find out more information please phone Darlene at 604-796-3101.
