Commonly asked questions

Triple P is one of the few parenting programmes 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 including kiwi whanau, and in many different family situations.

Family Transitions Triple P Online consists of 5 modules. These modules usually take between 30 minutes to an hour to complete. If you prefer, you can just do 10 – 15 minutes at a time. Plus, you can take breaks between each module or revisit a previous module whenever you feel like it – you decide.

Triple P International takes your privacy and data protection very seriously. We have rigorous IT security systems and procedures. We don’t share your information with any third-party marketing organisations or unauthorised personnel. Your email address and region are visible to our administration team. Your progress may be visible to a system administrator in case you need to change your email address. All other family information within the programme is anonymised. If you’d like more information, please review our privacy policy.

It is great if both parents can do the course, but it’s not essential. Triple P is used very successfully by individual 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, 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 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 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 programme!
