Triple P Positive Parenting offers parents/guardians different levels of support based on what parents/ guardians identify they need support on and the programmes introduce parents/guardians to evidence based tips and strategies that help with typical issues in parenting. There are one off seminars, one off workshops for specific problems and groups that run over a few weeks.
Triple P is a proven evidence based positive parenting programme which is free to parents/ guardians of children up-to age 10 years in Sligo and Leitrim. The programme offers parenting information, tips and strategies to help parents respond to the issues that inevitably arise in families. It is a one of a kind multi-level system offering a suite of programs of increasing intensity catering to different levels of family need. The options are a once off 1 and 1/2 hour seminar which provide information to parents/ guardians who are generally coping well but have one or two concerns with their child's behaviour or development.
Some of the options are: Raising resilient children or raising confident, competent children. Two hour workshops targeting a specific problem behaviour or issue like dealing with disobedience, managing fighting and aggression or developing good bed-time routines.
Groups run over a few weeks and provide support to parents/ guardians who want support in their parenting role, want to prevent problems, and help to manage behaviours and emotional problems.
