Triple P – the Positive Parenting Program – offers support for parents and people caring for children and teenagers in the Western North Carolina region. Some parents are just seeking brief advice to handle minor disobedience or survive toilet training, while others may need more support as they learn positive ways to deal their children's severe or aggressive behaviors.
Triple P is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the World Health Organization, and it is currently used in more than 20 countries and 27 US states. It is available in the Western North Carolina region through a grant from the North Carolina Division of Public Health, Children and Youth Branch.
