“The strategies have been really effective! I love that it doesn’t try to tell you how you’re ‘supposed’ to parent, but gives you the tools to use when you need them.” – Triple P Online Course Participant, Eugene

Five Steps to Positive Parenting

Click on each step to learn more:

  1. Create a safe, interesting environment: children need to play and explore their world, so remove potential dangers from your home, teach basic safety. Provide plenty of interesting things to keep kids busy.

  2. Have a positive learning environment: when your child comes to you for help or to talk, they’re ready to learn. Give them positive attention, even if only for a minute or so.

  3. Use assertive discipline: children do best in a predictable, stable environment, so set clear rules and boundaries and follow through with appropriate consequences. Encourage behavior you like with lots of praise.

  4. Have realistic expectations: nobody’s perfect – children or adults – so don’t expect your child to do more than they’re capable of. And remember, all parents make mistakes sometimes.

  5. Take care of yourself as a parent: it’s all about balance. You’ve got to look after your own needs too, so make sure you’re getting some support, time with friends, fun, and maybe even a little time to yourself!
