The Triple P-Positive Parenting Program is a multi-tiered system of five levels of education and support for parents and caregivers of children and adolescents ages 0 to 16. Triple P helps parents learn strategies that promote social competence and self-regulation in children, so they’re better equipped to handle the stress of everyday child rearing and children become better able to respond to their individual developmental challenges. Triple P is also used to prevent the development or worsening of severe behavioral, emotional, and developmental problems. Triple P can be used in parts or as a whole system. Triple P has materials available in English, Arabic, Berber, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, Flemish, French, German, Greek, Indonesian, Japanese, Malay, Papiamentu, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Urdu, and Vietnamese.
