Triple P at Mellers!

Triple P at Mellers!

Marjolein, the Place2Be school project manager, has recently trained to deliver Primary Care Triple P parenting support. Here’s a bit more information about the programme.

Is this you?

Being a parent should be easier than this! Perhaps you can’t take your daughter shopping because she throws a tantrum every time. Or maybe you have a child who makes bedtime a nightmare. Or one who’s getting into fights at school.

If your child has a particular behaviour problem that is making family life more difficult than it should be, then Primary Care Triple P can help. Primary Care Triple P provides guidance that is tailored to deal specific problems.

What is Primary Care?

This is a very brief and private way for parents to get Triple P support. There are usually about four sessions (although sometime more, sometimes less). It will just be you (and your partner, if you wish) and a Triple P provider (Marjolein). There will be no other parents at these sessions.

Who is this for?

Parents of children birth – 12.

Triple P can help you

  • Encourage behaviour you like
  • Deal with problem behaviour
  • Become confident as a parent
  • Be realistic about parenting
  • Take care of yourself

What happens at the sessions?

You will talk with Marjolein about the problem you have. You will discuss what might be causing your child to behave this way and work out what changes you would like to see in your child’s behaviour. You will be given suggestions to deal with the problem. You will also be given a tip sheet to take home. The tip sheet will remind you of the things you have discussed. You may also be shown a DVD that show other parents dealing with similar problems with their children.

How long do the sessions take?

A session can last anything from 15 minutes to half an hour. Over four sessions that’s a maximum two hours. Just two hours that could help you turn your family life around!

Where can I get it?

Right here at Mellers, just get in touch via the school or Marjolein’s mobile number, 07949 471359 or ask Senga Cannop, the parent support worker.
