Triple P Parenting

Register now for FREE upcoming Triple P Discussion Groups for parents of children aged 2 - 12.  Free childcare is available. Register online through Muskoka Family Focus or by calling 705-645-3027, ext. 200


This discussion uses shopping trips as an example of one of the most common times parents have to deal with difficult behaviour in public. Positive parenting strategies are discussed as step-by-step suggestions for preventing problems and teaching children how to behave on shopping trips. Parents develop individualized plans to manage problem behaviour during their own shopping trips and are encouraged to transfer new parenting strategies to other potentially difficult community situations.
