With support from the Governor’s Children’s Initiative, the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) and the Ohio Children’s Trust Fund (OCTF) are working to expand Triple P services across the state. When parents and caregivers have the support and resources they need, children are able to experience the positive, happy childhoods they deserve.
This is a fully funded family support initiative, thanks to Ohio Children’s Trust Fund. Many organizations including charities, health centers, schools and local and state governments across the United States and in many other countries provide free access to Triple P. That’s because Triple P is one of the world’s most researched parenting programs. Investing in the future health and happiness of our children and teenagers benefits the whole community. So doing Triple P Online, Teen Triple P Online or other types of Triple P offered on this website is totally free. And no, there’s no catch.
Triple P is one of the few parenting programs in the world with evidence to show it works. There are literally hundreds of trials and studies to show Triple P works for most families, in many different cultures, and in many different family situations. Triple P Online is also the first online parenting program proven to work. In some regions, parents purchase the program (where funding doesn’t cover free access). In those regions we offer a money-back guarantee.
Each module only takes about 30 minutes to an hour. You don’t need to do it all in one block, either. Some parents prefer to just do ten or fifteen minutes a day. There are 8 modules in Triple P Online and Teen Triple P Online has 6 modules. There’s also an extra Parenting During Uncertain Times module in each, to help with issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic. So if you start today and do one or two modules each week, you could be finished in about a month! Of course, it’s totally up to you. If you want to take it more slowly, take a break, or go back and revisit a previous module, that’s all fine too.
There are online positive parenting courses for parents of children under 12 (Triple P Online) and parents of teenagers (Teen Triple P Online). These are general positive parenting courses, which include ways to help your child be more confident, capable, and resilient. Fear-Less Triple P Online (for parents of children with anxiety) is a course to help parents of children aged 6 to 14 years support their child’s anxiety-coping skills and emotional wellbeing. You can find more information about each program elsewhere on this website.
It depends a bit on which issues you’d like to focus on most. There’s not a hard and fast rule or an exact age at which children develop, so we suggest taking a look at the different courses to help you decide. You can always do more than one!
It is great if both parents can do the course, but it’s not essential. Triple P is used very successfully by single parents. When both parents, or a parent and another carer, both do the course it helps them work as a team to make changes. This includes grandparents, foster parents, and other family members, and even ex-partners, if they also care for your children. It makes it easier to communicate better about parenting, argue and disagree less, and support each other more. If you want both parents to have their own workbook and certificate, you should request two access codes.
One of the great things about Triple P is that it’s not about telling you what to do in every situation. It’s about helping you feel confident that you can work out what to do. This will be based on what you learn about child or teen development and the strategies you’ve picked up, and your ability to review and refine. So if your question’s about parenting, we suggest you go ahead and do the free program!
