• dealing with frustration,• trouble with homework,• signs of anxiety• common teenage issues.

Whatever your parenting need, Triple P has the information, tip sheets, course and practitioner to help you.
For Every Parent: The three P’s in Triple P stand for “Positive Parenting Programme”. We offer support for every parent. The courses are free and all parents are welcome.
