When Triple P And Westfield Shopping Centres Combine...

Time-poor and busy parents hungry for knowledge, tips and strategies to help make raising kids and teenagers easier can now find Triple P positive parenting help at selected Westfield shopping centres.

Shopping centres are playing an increasingly larger role in family lives – as shopping, dining and entertainment precincts – so to offer free parenting support where families naturally congregate is already proving to be a success, said Triple P’s Professor Matt Sanders.

“Our first three seminars at Westfield Carindale booked out as soon as we listed the details on our website, and we expect North Lakes – which will offer its first round of free parenting seminars [in May] – to be just as popular,” he said.

“Triple P is now working with Westfield on how we can offer Triple P seminars more regularly and potentially more widely across other Westfield centres.”

Westfield Carindale Centre Manager Jodie Gaske said Westfield prides itself on creating unique opportunities for families to gather together and connect.

“Families are at the heart of our community and we’re proud to offer this free education program to parenting looking for more support and information,” she said.

So far 160,000+ parents and carers have done free Triple P in Queensland since mid-2015.  Find and join a seminar or smaller group, search for a provider offering one-on-one sessions, or sign up for the online program.
