Help your child manage anxiety and become more emotionally resilient - this full toolkit of tips and ideas really works!
The Fear-Less Triple P programme is part of the Triple P Positive Parenting Program®. Fear-Less isn’t about eliminating fear altogether – sometimes, fear protects us. Instead, it’s about giving your family a toolbox of strategies, skills, and knowledge to manage anxious feelings and stop unnecessary worrying. Fear-Less Triple P is based on extensive research with families of anxious children by clinical psychologists. It can work for you too — and now it’s online!

Fear-Less Triple P Online is based on the face-to-face version of Fear-Less Triple P, which has been shown to reduce anxiety in children and their siblings when their parents completed the programme. It’s based on well-established principles of psychology including cognitive behavioural therapy.
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 6 modules in Fear-Less Triple P Online. There’s also an extra Parenting During Uncertain Times module, to help with issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic. So if you start today and do one or two modules each week, you’ll 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.
It is great if both parents can do the course, but it’s not essential. 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. If you want both parents to have their own workbook and certificate, you need to request two access codes.
Fear-Less Triple P, like other Triple P programmes, isn’t about telling you what to do in every situation. It’s about helping you feel confident that you can work out what to do. So if your question’s about parenting an anxious child, we suggest you go ahead and do the programme!
