Triple P is a world-acclaimed program that gives parents skills to manage misbehavior and prevent problems from happening in the first place.
From toddler tantrums to bedtime dramas to outright disobedience, Triple P helps parents sort through the big and small issues of family life – and raise happier, confident and healthy children.
