To say that 2020 has been a tough year for parents would be the understatement of the year. Fortunately, a new free online support program is now available for stressed out Alberta parents just in time for the winter holidays.
The Triple P – Positive Parenting Program® is an online platform that gives parents a wide range of positive parenting tips and strategies through video tutorials and other resources. It is available worldwide in 22 languages and has won numerous international awards, while its founder, Professor Matt Sanders, has been a consultant to the World Health Organization and numerous governments.
And thanks to Alberta government funding, this highly acclaimed parental support platform is now available free of charge across Alberta.
Topics covered by Triple P tutorials include:
- Managing stress
- Encouraging good behaviour and dealing with misbehaviour
- Settling tantrums
- Teaching your child new skills
- Take the stress out of shopping
- Negotiating boundaries and expectations
- Dealing with natural disasters (including global pandemics!)
Triple P offers courses for parents and carers of children aged zero to 12 as well as teen-focused courses—offered in both one-off and continuous formats. It also offers enhanced private sessions for help dealing with serious behavioural issues, as well as a “Stepping Stones” program geared for parents of children with disabilities.
In addition to the tutorials and seminars, the program also facilitates online discussion groups, where parents can seek and offer advice.
