Karen Heavey Coordinator Triple P
7 Week Programme
All parents raising teenagers find it easier when they get support. Raising teenagers can be stressful and challenging and Triple P can offer you tips and ideas to make it less stressful. The task for parents is to provide a home environment that guides and supports teenagers as they grow and become independent young adults. It is up to you as a parent to develop your own approach to deal with your teenagers’ behaviour. You will learn new skills and possibly new ways of approaching situations with your teenager. . Teen Triple P has been helpful for many parents and may give you tips and ideas to help you to build a positive relationship with your teenager and raise happy well adjusted teenagers.
Teen Triple P is a 7 week programme for parents of teenagers aged 11 – 15 years. There will be 4 group sessions where we meet for 2 hours, then 3 telephone calls, followed by a final group session.

Teen Triple P is for parent who want support in their parenting role, want to prevent problems and to help manage problems that may happen. There is an emphasis on building positive relationships, encouraging appropriate behaviours and teaching teenagers lifeskills as they become young adults.
We will play video clips which will show how the ideas work in real life situations share tips and ideas. You will get a workbook which they will use during the group sessions, and to complete some exercises at home. This programme will be relaxed and informal; you can talk as much or as little as you want.
Parents who have attended the group have said things like:
“ I have learned the skills to stay calm, negotiate and talk to my teenager about how to plan ahead and solve problems that may arise ”
“ Good to hear that I am not the only parent who is experiencing these issues with my teenager”
“I enjoyed the 7 weeks, it flew by and I really got a lot of tips and ideas to make parenting a teenager easier in a relaxed supportive environment”
