More classes in positive parenting now open for registration

Post Date:12/28/2018 10:42 AM

The free Triple P parenting classes offered by the Tempe Human Services Department are aimed at parents who are looking for skills to raise confident, healthy children. The program offers weekly discussion groups and more lengthy parenting courses.

Triple P, which stands for Positive Parenting Program®, covers a variety of topics and gives parents choices of simple strategies that fit each family’s needs. Class materials are provided by the program. And at select classes, families are provided free snacks, meals and childcare.

Parents of children from infants to 12 years old will appreciate the practical topics covered in this round of classes which are: Dealing with Disobedience, Tantrums, Coping with Stress, and Interrupting & Cleaning Up.

Triple P notes it is “one of the few parenting programs in the world that’s based on evidence from research.  Over 30 years of testing has resulted in a program with simple strategies that has been shown to help families in all types of situations.”
