    Healthy kids. Healthy families. Healthy communities.

    Triple P in practice

    Primary Care Triple P is designed for any family experiencing behavior issues like:

    • Temper tantrums.
    • Chores or homework struggles.
    • Bedtime or mealtime problems.

    In just 2 to 4, 30 minute to 1 hour sessions, parents of children ages birth-12 years can learn how to:

    • Motivate positive behavior.
    • Tackle problem behavior.
    • Become more confident.
    • Set realistic parenting expectations.

    “Triple P is the only research-based parenting program that provides the flexibility to adapt to the needs of families and to a variety of service settings. It is highly appealing to me as a pediatrician because it provides a set of tools that allow me to address common concerns of parents efficiently and effectively.”

    -John C. Duby, M.D., Director, Division of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, Akron Children’s Hospital, Ohio.
