Par­ents of teenagers will ben­e­fit from the new Pos­i­tive Par­ent­ing Pro­gram, which pro­vides guid­ance on how to deal with com­mon de­vel­op­men­tal pe­ri­ods of a child’s life.

Char-Lan Recre­ation Cen­tre at 19740 John Street in Wil­liamstown will host free work­shops as part of the “My Triple P” pro­gram from Tues­day, March 3 to Tues­day, May 5. Ses­sions fo­cus on help­ing fam­i­lies who may be fac­ing dif­fi­cul­ties with their teenaged chil­dren, aged 12 to 17.

Par­ents and care­givers will at­tend six face- to-face, in-class ses­sions. Or­ga­niz­ers are ask­ing par­ents to register in ad­vance by call­ing: 1-844-362-8593 or vis­it­ing: mytriplep.ca.

Top­ics in­clude deal­ing with dis­obe­di­ence, de­vel­op­ing good bed­time rou­tines and un­der­stand­ing the power of pos­i­tive par­ent­ing.

Ses­sions will of­fer strate­gies

Par­ents will learn how to work through prob­lems in their re­la­tion­ships with their teenaged chil­dren, such as how to avoid us­ing crit­i­cism or iso­la­tion to try to solve a dis­pute. Ses­sions run from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. The Group Triple P work­shops will pro­vide fam­i­lies a more “in-depth look into par­ent­ing strate­gies” that help pre­vent the kind of prob­lems that may be mak­ing their fam­ily life stress­ful.

Par­ents will be able to meet with other par­ents deal­ing with sim­i­lar chal­lenges in a sup­port­ive group set­ting.

The Triple P pro­gram is pro­vided through the Healthy Fam­i­lies Coali­tion of Eastern On­tario. A num­ber of part­ner­ing com­mu­nity agen­cies also help make the pro­gram avail­able through­out Eastern On­tario.
