Open to parents and caregivers of children from newborns through 12 years old. The Triple P – Positive Parenting Program is an effective evidence-based parenting program throughout the world.
Offered by CarePlus New Jersey, the “Positive Parenting Program®” known as the Triple “P” Parenting Group is a parenting and family support system designed to prevent – as well as treat – behavioral and emotional problems in children.
The positive parenting strategies are backed up by more than 35 years of ongoing research.
The Triple P positive parenting program gives parents the skills they need to raise confident, healthy children and to build stronger family relationships, while also helping parents manage misbehavior.
What is the Triple P – Positive Parenting Program?
Triple P doesn’t tell people how to parent. Rather, it gives parents simple and practical strategies they can adapt to suit their own values, beliefs and needs. Similarly, parents who use positive parenting skills feel more confident and competent about managing day-to-day family life. They feel less parenting stress, less depressed and have less conflict with their partners over their parent child relationships issues.
The CarePlus Philosophy of the Positive Parenting Program
Coping skills and strengths developed in childhood carry into adult life, helping individuals reach their full potential. With this in mind, CarePlus New Jersey strives to deliver programming and resources that assist individuals in navigating our complicated world.
Utilizing the multi level system of Triple P Positive Parenting Program® we are able to provide parents of Bergen County parenting support.
The eight-week positive parenting education program provides parents with the tools to:
- Encourage desired behavior
- Correct and change problem behavior
- Increase parent’s confidence and self- care
- Raise responsible, caring children
Positive parenting, parenting strategies, realistic expectations are all part of Triple P.
The CarePlus group facilitator will begin with a parenting assessment at the first and final session of the eight-week group. This allows each mom, dad, or caregiver to see their growth during this self-paced course.
During each of the one and half hour weekly sessions, the CarePlus facilitator provides instruction from a structured group curriculum designed for parents and caregivers of school-aged and adolescent children.
