Triple P Programme
Parenting is a challenging and yet a fulfilling responsibility. Hence, Temasek Primary has joined with Ministry of Social and Family Development in offering two programmes that comprises a toolbox of parenting tips and strategies for parents to use; Triple P and Signposts.
Positive Parenting Programme or Triple P for short is one of the most effective-evidence-based parenting programmes in the world, backed up by more than 30 years of ongoing research.
Triple P gives parents simple and practical strategies to help them confidently manage their children’s behaviour, prevent problems developing and build strong, healthy relationships.
Triple P is currently used in 25 countries and has been shown to work across cultures, socio-economic groups and in all kinds of family structures.
The programme consists of large group seminars and individual consultations. Parents are invited upon results obtained by filling in a questionnaire that was provided early this year.
Signposts for building better behaviour or Signposts for shortis another programmewhich has been specifically developed to help parents manage difficult behaviour in their children.
The programme aims to:
- Helps parents understand the behaviour
- Enables parents to work out the purpose of the behaviour
- Equips parents with tools to build effective ways to manage current difficult behaviours
The small group sessions act as support groups and help parents to have confidence in managing their children and feeling less stressed. Parents who attended Signposts also found their children to be less disruptive.
