Triple P takes the guesswork out of parenting!

When it comes to raising kids and teenagers, everyone has an opinion. There are so many ideas out there. So how do you know what’s best and what works? The Triple P – Positive Parenting Program takes the guesswork out of parenting. It is one of the few parenting programs in the world with evidence to show it works for most families. The Summit Center is the only organization in Western New York with staff trained to provide Triple P!

Triple P has been tested with thousands of families over more than 30 years. In fact, there are now more than 580 international trials, studies and published papers that show Triple P works for most families.

Triple P has been shown to help reduce kids’ and teens’ problem behavior and also reduce children’s emotional problems. The evidence also shows it helps parents feel more confident, less stressed, less angry and less depressed. And that’s positive!

Triple P gives parents simple tips to help manage the big and small problems of family life.

  • Toddler tantrums
  • Teenage rebellion
  • Self-esteem issues
  • Bedtime battles
  • Disobedience
  • Aggression

Triple P can help you deal with them all – and more! Call Summit at 716-629-3400 for more information!

Five Steps to Positive Parenting

Positive parenting is a great way to parent. Children who grow up with positive parenting do well at school. They make friends easily. They feel good about themselves. And they’re also less likely to have behavioral or emotional problems when they get older. Triple P helps you manage your child’s behavior, emotions and development in a way that isn’t hurtful. You will build strong relationships, communicate well and encourage the kind of behavior you want to see. Positive parenting is also great for you. Positive parenting helps parents feel more confident and less stressed. And you will have less conflict with your partner about parenting issues.

There are five key steps to Triple P’s Positive Parenting:

  1. Create a safe, interesting environment
  2. Have a positive learning environment
  3. Use assertive discipline
  4. Have realistic expectations
  5. Take care of yourself as a parent
