Having trouble with your teen?

Do you live in Northamptonshire with a teenager aged 12-16 years?

Is this your family?

Other parents don’t seem to have it as tough as you. Your child constantly misbehaves. S/He rarely does what you want. Your family life is full of anger and tears. There’s probably a lot of shouting and your child may even be aggressive – perhaps hitting you, the furniture or his/her brothers and sisters. In fact, everyday – from breakfast to bedtime – is a battle.

Or is this you?

You want to create the happiest home life you can. You may have a few concerns about your child’s behaviour – perhaps there’s disobedience or you simply want to find out how to set up better routines for mealtimes or bedtimes.

If this sounds familiar, then the Teen Triple P Service can help. Triple P gives you support to help you manage your child’s behaviour and prevent the kinds of problems that make your family life stressful.  Whatever it is, you’re very keen to learn more about positive parenting and how you can apply it to your family.  If you’re ready for a more in-depth look at the parenting strategies that really work, Triple P is ideal.

Triple P can help parents-

• encourage behaviour they like

• deal with problem behaviour

• become confident as a parent

• be realistic about parenting

• take care of themselves
