Mr and Mrs Lee Parents of a Primary 4 child

“My husband and I highly recommend parents who want to improve parent-child relationships or who are struggling with their teens/tweens to join the Triple P programme. We were not able to believe that in a mere 1 month, we were able to connect with our child better and address some of the concerns that we had for years.”
