Triple P offers practical strategies for parents to manage their children’s behavior.

Something for every parent

As a national and international parenting program, the Triple P support system helps parents address behavioral and emotional issues in children and teenagers.

Triple P offers five different levels of services, so that organizations can offer help to every parent depending on the help they need. It offers single-visit consultations, public seminars and group courses, and private sessions.

Children's Trust funds Triple P as the federal Community-Based Child Abuse Prevention grantee in South Carolina.

Five core principles of Triple P

  1. Ensuring a safe and engaging environment
  2. Creating a positive learning environment that helps children learn to solve problems
  3. Using assertive, consistent discipline that teaches children to accept responsibility for their behavior
  4. Having realistic expectations about children’s behavior
  5. Taking care of yourself as a parent to find balance in life

PASOs serves Lexington County families with children 0-12 years of age to prevent first incidences of child abuse and neglect among Latino families by using group Triple P.

Family Connections delivers a Stepping Stones, the Triple P variation for families with children with disabilities. They deliver parenting seminars and work one-on-one for families that may need some additional support regarding a behavioral issue.
