SA Positive Parenting program - Triple P

The Positive Parenting program in South Australia (Triple P) teaches parents and caregivers simple, practical strategies to confidently tackle parenting issues. The evidence-based strategies help parents build positive, strong and healthy relationships with their children. The parenting skills will help you:

  • set family routines and rules
  • develop positive relationships
  • raise happy, healthy and confident children
  • balance work and family
  • create a happy, safe environment where your family can thrive.

Triple P doesn’t tell you how to be a parent. It gives you a choice of strategies that you can adapt for all types of parenting situations and problems.

Triple P is delivered through seminars, group sessions and one-to-one support via the SA Positive Parenting Team. The range of options available means parents can receive as much or as little help as they like, depending on individual preferences and situation.

Tina, a parent from Greenacres has this to say about the program:

We thoroughly enjoyed these sessions and learnt a great deal. The most important being that we must allow our children to learn to help themselves ie "What have you done to help yourself?" We must avoid "rescuing" them.

Who can participate

Triple P is available for free across South Australia to parents and caregivers of children from 3 to 12 years.

Triple P seminars, workshops and one-to-one support are being rolled out across South Australia by the SA Positive Parenting team.
