It's helpful, but not essential. Triple P is used very successfully by single parents. When more than one parent, step-parent or carer does the course it helps everyone work as a team to make changes. This includes grandparents 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 need to 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 development and the strategies you’ve picked up, and your ability to review and refine. So, if you have questions about parenting, we suggest you go ahead and do the program!
