‘Triple P’ Parenting Workshop
Brentfield hosted a parenting workshop – Triple P – an eight-week programme of two hour sessions, comprised of five group and three individual telephone sessions. Brent’s Early Help Team delivered the workshop. The workshop focused on how to positively parent and how to manage children’s behaviour and emotions. Parents explored how to build strong relationships, communicate well and encourage the behaviour they wanted to see in their children.
The five key steps to Triple P’s positive parenting are:
- Creating a safe, interesting environment
- Having a positive learning environment
- Using assertive discipline
- Having realistic expectations
- Taking care of yourself as a parent
Feedback from some of the parents included:
“I learnt about the importance of interacting with my children, understanding their needs and what my role is as a parent.”
“It’s given me new strategies such as quiet time, which is really beneficial”.
“I’ve changed the tone of my voice; I don’t shout anymore, I just change the tone of my voice to ensure I sound serious, which is working very well.”
Thank you to all of the parents who attended the sessions and we look forward to running similar workshops in the future.
