What is Triple P? The Triple P – Positive Parenting Program is one of the world's most effective parenting programs. It gives parents the skills they need to raise confident, healthy children, and to build stronger family relationships. It also helps parents manage misbehaviour and prevent problems occuring in the first place. 

With more than 30 years of ongoing research, Triple P has been scientifically trialled with thousands of families around the world and been found to work – regardless of culture, country or individual situation. Triple P has helped more than six million children and their familes in more than 20 countries around the world. 

Children don't come with an instruction manual so when it comes to parenting, how do you know what's best and what works? The Alberta Government is helping to take the guesswork out of parenting, by supporting parents and caregivers throughout the province with the Triple P – Positive Parenting Program. 

For more information on our upcoming Triple P classes, call 403 205 5178.
