The Positive Parenting Programme (Triple P) is an approach to raising children that is positive and reduces the stress of parenting, making it more rewarding. Triple P really works. It is one of the few parenting programmes in the world that has been scientifically proven to work. Its practical strategies have been tested over more than 30 years and shown to help families in all types of situations. It is now used in more than 20 countries.
Shama is offering the following programmes:
- Scheduled Discussion Group
Fridays, 3-24 May from 12:30-2:30 at Shama
Go here to register for any or all of the sessions.
- Form Your Own Discussion Group
If you are connected to a community of parents who would like to participate in a discussion group, you can form your own group with a day and time suitable to your group needs. If your group speaks the same language, we can hire an interpreter for the group. Contact Sam to arrange this.
- Parent Coaching
If your child has behaviour challenges other than the discussion group topics or you want further support, we offer four half-hour coaching sessions that will give you an action plan for dealing proactively with challenging behaviour. This can be with one parent/caregiver or both. Contact Sam if you wish to schedule a coaching session.
- Future Discussion Groups
If you are interested in being in a discussion group but these days and times don’t work for you, please email Sam with your interest and we can gather others to create a discussion group at another time/day.
- Parents of Teens
We currently are not offering a parenting teens discussion group but are collecting names of people who are interested in future workshops. Email Sam to be put on the waiting list or if we can find another solution if you have an immediate need.
