Individual Consultation Sessions
Triple P Level 3 are one-on-one consultation sessions to help parents address one or two specific behaviour problems of children with mild to moderate behavioural difficulties.
Group Work Sessions
Triple P Level 4 are group sessions for parents who prefer intensive training in positive parenting skills. There are 5 group sessions of 2 hours each and 3 individual telephone calls. One of the great features of group work besides being trained by Triple P/FLE experts, is the benefit of learning from other parents as well as being assured that they are not alone in this journey.

What Parents Are Saying About Triple P
Parents who completed the programmes reported improved parenting competencies; reduced parenting stress, negative emotional state, and child’s difficult behaviour.
Triple P provided much insights into our parenting styles and how we could adjust accordingly. The facilitator was skillful in the way she guided us. This enabled us to openly share our fears and challenges faced in our parenting journey. A BIG thank you for the enriching sessions.
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.
