Event description

Description

All parents at some point feel overwhelmed with the responsibilities of parenting and frustrated with the challenges of raising children. Are you wishing for more ease and joy in parenting, more connection with your children, and to have strategies for dealing with difficult behaviour?

Shama will be offering support, discussion groups, and one-on-one coaching for parents of children under 13 years old who are struggling to cope with general behaviour problems. 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.

In a relaxed group session, your provider will give you tips and suggestions for dealing with your child’s problem behaviour. You’ll see short video clips showing other parents successfully dealing with the same issue and you’ll be encouraged to share your thoughts with the other parents in the group, if you wish to. You’ll also be given a take-home workbook with simple exercises and information to help you try your new strategies at home.

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.

Both parents are encouraged to attend and can also include significant caregivers like grandparents, older siblings, or other relatives. It is also fine if only one caregiver can attend.

There are four sessions to choose from or attend all four:

  • Dealing with Disobedience (3 May)
  • Developing Good Bedtime Routines (10 May)
  • Managing Fighting and Aggression (17 May)
  • Hassle-free Shopping with Children (24 May)

Please email the organiser if there are any sessions you do not want or cannot attend.

If you're interested in Triple P Discussion Groups but cannot make this time, there are other options.

1) You could get a group of parents together and choose and day, time, and venue that suits the group then check with the Shama Triple P facilitator to arrange facilitation and topics.

2) We can take your details and create an invite around the days and times that do work for you--which hopefully will work for other parents, too.

3) If you want more immediate support on a particular behaviour challenge, consider the one-on-one parent coaching. Contact the Shama Triple P facilitator to arrange this.
