Child feeling reluctant or anxious to return to school? Check out these tips.
What is Triple P?
Triple P is a parenting program, but it does not tell you how to be a parent. It is more like a toolbox of ideas. You choose the strategies you need. You choose the way you want to use them. Whether you're dealing with the big, small or one-off problems of raising a young child… we can help!
A child who won't go to bed and stay there?
Kids who don't listen or a defiant child?
Disrespectful or rude behavior?
WHO WILL I BE TALKING WITH?
You will be speaking with Diane Atherton, our accredited Triple P Practitioner and Family Outreach Coordinator. She has more than 30 years of experience in early education and child development, and is well-trained in helping you with a variety of Triple P, resiliency, and discipline strategies.
WHAT’S THE CATCH?
There’s no catch. This is a free program for Moore County families raising children under the age of 5. We typically provide this service face-to-face at our office, but want to make it as widely available as possible given the current circumstances and increased needs of local families. No long-term commitment required - all that you need is a desire to be the kind of parent you want to be!
