The Queensland Government is taking the guesswork out of parenting by offering parents and carers the Triple P – Positive Parenting Program® free of charge.
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.
Each module of the Triple P Online Course only takes about 30 minutes to an hour. You don’t need to do it all in one block, either. Some parents prefer to just do ten or fifteen minutes a day. There are 8 modules in Triple P Online and 6 in Teen Triple P Online. The Fear-Less Triple P Online course also has 6 modules. There’s also an extra Parenting During Uncertain Times module in each, to help with issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Triple P Online for Baby program has 7 modules. So whichever program you choose, if you start today and do one or two modules each week, you’ll be finished in about a month! Of course, it’s totally up to you. If you want to take it more slowly, take a break, or go back and revisit a previous module, that’s all fine too.
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.
It is great if both parents can do the course, but it’s not essential. Triple P is used very successfully by single parents. When both parents, or a parent and another carer, both do the course it helps them work as a team to make changes. This includes grandparents, foster parents, 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 or teen 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.
