AN UPDATE FROM OUR DIRECTOR:
The past year has upended life in so many ways. Families are facing more issues now than ever, and may be struggling with unexpected changes in their children's behavior. The Triple P program is designed with a gentle approach, covering topics like positive discipline and fighting and aggression, along with everyday challenges like grocery shopping with kids and establishing good bedtime routines- things that maybe weren't always difficult, but are now.
"The entire program was great. Good classes, teacher, and discussions for each topic. I will definitely use the strategies I learned for bedtime, shopping, and disobedience!" -Triple P participant, Winter 2020
In addition to the above class topics, Triple P Primary Care is also offered in Niagara County as one-on-one support. For more information on Triple P or to register, click here!
