Which Triple P is right for me?

Parents have different needs when it comes to parenting help. Some may just want a tip or two to make sure their child goes quietly to bed at night – and stays there. Some may need a simple plan to stop tantrums at the shopping mall. But others could be facing more serious trouble and need in-depth help to get them through.


That's why Triple P has many different ways to get help. You choose what is best for you and your family. It's about giving you the right amount of help you need – enough, but not too much!


So, as you read the situations below, see if you recognise yourself. Is this you? You'll get an idea of the Triple P help that may fit your needs. You'll also see the kind of Triple P you can do in private, with your personal Triple P provider, and the types of Triple P done in groups with other parents.

Short sessions with other parents

Is this you?

Most of the time, parenting is fun. You know you are doing a good job. But there are times when things get a little tricky. Like when your toddler won't eat her dinner. Or your six year old won't pick up his toys. If only someone could give you some ideas to make those times easier! If this sounds like you, then a Triple P seminar may be right for you.

Level 2 Seminar Triple P – positive parenting in a nutshell

Is this you?

A child who melts down in the supermarket. One who won't go to bed without a fight. The kid who's always disobedient, or the one who bites, hits or fights.


If your child fits any of these descriptions, Triple P Discussion Groups can help. Triple P Discussion Groups are short, small group sessions that offer parents practical advice for tackling specific problem behaviour.

Level 3 Discussion Group Triple P – for common parenting problems

Ongoing support in groups

Is this your family?

Other parents don't seem to have it as tough as you. Your child constantly misbehaves. Your family life is full of frustration, anger and tears. There's probably a lot of shouting and your child may even be aggressive – perhaps hitting you, the furniture or his brothers and sisters. In fact, everyday – from breakfast to bedtime – is a battle. If this sounds familiar, then Group Triple P could help.


Group Triple P gives you support to help you manage your child's behaviour and prevent the kinds of problems that make your family life stressful.

Level 4 Group Triple P – all you want to know

Or is this you?

You want to create the happiest home life you can. You may have a few concerns about your child's behaviour – perhaps there's disobedience or you simply want to find out how to set up better routines for mealtimes or bedtimes. Whatever it is, you're very interested to learn more about positive parenting and how you can apply it to your family. If you're ready for a more in-depth look at the parenting strategies that really work, Group Triple P is ideal.

Extra help for serious problems

Is this you?

Home is an unhappy place. Maybe you and your partner are fighting all the time. Perhaps you can't agree on the best way to be a parent. You could be really stressed, angry or even depressed. Life always seems to be on a the edge.


If this sounds like you, Enhanced Triple P can help calm things down at home so you will feel a lot better – and your children will too. You may be referred to Enhanced Triple P by your Triple P provider while you are doing a Group Triple P or Standard Triple P course.

Level 5 Enhanced Triple P – for more serious family problems

Is this you?

Things are very bad at home. You may be feeling angry a lot of the time. Perhaps you worry that you're going to "lose it" and hit your child – or worse.


If this sounds like your home, then Pathways Triple P is for you. You may be referred to Pathways Triple P by your provider while you are doing a Group Triple P or Standard Triple P course.

Level 5 Pathways Triple P – keeping families together

To keep kids healthy and active

You want your child to be happy, healthy and active. But there isn't much outdoor play, walking, running or energetic games happening. Maybe life feels too busy to fit in weekend sports. Perhaps your child doesn't eat healthy food that often. It's likely that your child is overweight.


If you'd like to encourage your family to enjoy healthier eating and be more active, Lifestyle Triple P can help.
