Stepping Stones Triple P

What is Stepping Stones Triple P?

Stepping Stones Triple P (SSTP) is part of the Triple P parenting program, and has been specially tailored for parents of children with a disability. It doesn't tell you how to be a parent. It's more like a toolbox of ideas. Parents choose strategies they need. They choose the way they want to use them. It's all about making it work for parents.

What does Stepping Stones Triple P do?

The three Ps in "Triple P" stand for "Positive Parenting Program", which means family life is going to be much more enjoyable.

Stepping Stones Triple P helps:

  • Raise happy, confident kids
  • Manage misbehaviour so everyone in the family enjoys life more
  • Set rules and routines that everyone respects and follows
  • Encourage behaviour you like
  • Take care of yourself as a parent
  • Feel confident you're doing the right thing
  • Take part in community events
  • Develop plans for tricky situations

How does positive parenting work?

Because all families are different, Stepping Stones Triple P has a range of ways to get your positive parenting help. Choose anything from single visit consultations to public seminars, group courses to private sessions. You can even do Stepping Stones Triple P online at home.
