Delivery of the Triple P – Positive Parenting Program® to parents and carers of children in Australia is supported by funding from the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care under the Parenting Education and Support Program.

Triple P is one of the few parenting programs in the world with evidence to show it works. There are literally hundreds of trials and studies to show Triple P works for most families, in many different cultures, and in many different family situations. Triple P Online is also the first online parenting program proven to work.

On average, each module in the program usually takes about an hour to complete. Of course, everyone is different, and some people might take a little more or less time.

Some people like to do a whole module in one go. Others like to break it up into smaller chunks. We've found that a module per week works well for most people, as it gives you plenty of time to absorb what you're learning, try out some practical exercises, and start using the skills in your everyday parenting life.

Whether you want to finish your program in a few days, take it slow over a period of weeks or months, and even revisit it later - it's up to you!

Maybe you're dealing with mental health challenges yourself, parenting feels increasingly challenging, or you're dealing with family issues. Perhaps you've noticed your child is struggling more than usual, and you'd like support beyond our parenting programs. It's okay to ask for help. Below is a list of organisations that could provide you with some helpful guidance and further direction.

Triple P International takes your privacy and data protection very seriously. We have rigorous IT security systems and procedures. We don’t share your information with any third-party marketing organisations or unauthorised personnel. Your email address and region are visible to our administration team. Your progress may be visible to a system administrator in case you need to change your email address. All other family information within the program is anonymised. If you’d like more information, please review our privacy policy.

It's helpful, but not essential. Triple P is used very successfully by individual parents. When more than parent, step-parent or carer does the course it helps everyone work as a team to make changes. This includes grandparents and other family members, and even ex-partners, if they also care for your children. It makes it easier to communicate better about parenting, argue and disagree less, and support each other more. If you want both parents to have their own workbook and certificate, you need to request two access codes.

One of the great things about Triple P is that it’s not about telling you what to do in every situation. It’s about helping you feel confident that you can work out what to do. This will be based on what you learn about child development and the strategies you’ve picked up, and your ability to review and refine. So if your question’s about parenting, we suggest you go ahead and do the program! If it’s about something else to do with Triple P, you may want to try contacting us using this website’s contact details, via our social media channels, or through your local Triple P support service.
