Online Triple P Services Now Available for Families
During this complicated and uncertain time, parents and families need support more than ever before. We are all facing unique and unexpected challenges. Many are dealing with new stressors and the fear of living in an unpredictable world. Caring adults want to make certain that both the emotional and the physical need of the children in their lives are being met. Most parents are working from home, managing their job responsibilities in addition to supporting and educating their children during these uncertain times. These additional stressors can interfere with how parents interact with their children and add additional parenting stress.
Triple P (Positive Parenting Program) is here to help you and your family through these uncharted waters. Triple P classes normally happen face to face, but the City of Tempe, in partnership with Tempe Community Council, is moving its Triple P program to a virtual platform. Our Triple P practitioners are here to support parents and caregivers of:
- Children ages 0 – 12 in English and Spanish
- Teens ages 13 – 16
- Children with diagnosed disabilities
Please check this website frequently for additional information, programs and resources.
The following FREE SUPPORT SERVICES are now available for families to access online or by phone:
These small groups will be facilitated by an accredited Triple P practitioner and will cover a variety of topics of concern to parents and caregivers during this time. You are welcome to participate in as many as you would like. Topics will change weekly.
