Our Classes

Triple P Group

Triple P stands for the Positive Parenting Programme and aims to make parenting easier.  The group offers suggestions and ideas on positive parenting to help you enjoy being a parent and help your child to develop well.

There is no one right way to be a parent or carer. It is up to each of us to decide what values and skills we would like our children to have and how to teach them . We also have to develop our own way of dealing with misbehaviour.  Triple P has been helpful for many parents and can give you useful ideas to help you meet the challenges of raising children.

During your group sessions you will watch segments of Every Parent’s Survival Guide, with step by step advice about a variety of parenting strategies.  Groups are active and trying things at home means you get more out of the programme.

Dealing with Disobedience

Its always difficult for parents when their children don't do as they are told. While it is possible to prevent some problems, it is important to develop a plan for dealing with disobedience when it happens, and follow through to make sure children do what they've been asked to do.

Parents are actively involved in sharing their experiences and ideas about being a parent and managing difficult behaviour like disobedience and defiance. The group explores some of the reasons why children have trouble learning to follow instructions and how we can teach children boundaries and to do the right thing.  

By the end of this session you will have developed a personal plan for dealing with disobedience in your family.
