Positive Parenting Program

title

Courtenay Elementary School

The Courtenay Elementary Community School Society will be hosting the Positive Parenting Program, starting Thursday, January 23 from 5-7pm in the school library.

WHAT: Triple P is a system of proven parenting solutions that help resolve current parenting problems and prevents future problems before they arise. As one of the few evidence-based parenting programs available, with over 25 years of proven clinical research to back it up, you can be sure Triple P works for the majority of families.

Parenting is very rewarding and enjoyable. It is also often challenging, frustrating and exhausting. Parents have the important role of raising the next generation, yet most people begin parenting not prepared for what lies ahead. There is no "right" way of raising healthy, well adjusted children.

It is up to you as a parent to decide which values, skills, and behaviours you want to encourage in your child and to develop your own approach to dealing with your child's behaviour.

This course will help you:

  • Build a positive relationship with your children
  • Encourage behaviour you like
  • Teach children new skills
  • Set rules and give instructions that your children will follow
  • Respond to misbehaviour immediately, consistently and decisively
  • Use discipline strategies that work
  • Take care of yourself as a parent

WHEN: Every Thursday from 5-7pm, from January 23-March 12, 2020. Child minding will be provided.

WHERE: Courtenay Elementary School library

WHO: FREE to all Vancouver Island parents.
