Free Parent Support Program Being used in 88 counties
At least two parents in each of Ohio’s 88 counties have access the state’s free online parent support program, according to Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) Director Matt Damschroder.
The Positive Parenting Program (Triple P) is funded by the Governor’s Children’s Initiative, ODJFS and the Ohio Children’s Trust Fund (OCTF), according to a release from ODJFS.
“It’s so encouraging that more than 6,000 parents across Ohio have registered for the Triple P program,” Damschroder said. “The new strategies parents can take away from this curriculum can set their children on a path toward academic, social and emotional success.”
Triple P emphasizes creating a non-judgmental connection between parents and children, according to Kara Wente, director of the Governor’s Children’s Initiative.
“Whether that involves academic issues, social struggles or emotional challenges, Triple P builds communication skills,” Wente said. “Children and teens want to know they’re being heard, and Triple P studies show consistent conversations build trust, increase academic achievement and reduce anxiety.”
Triple P is used in more than 30 countries and is based on four decades of data. For parents of younger children, modules include “Encouraging Behavior You Like,” “Managing Misbehavior,” and “Raising Confident, Capable Kids.” Teen topics are similar but also include “Teaching New Skills” and “Planning Ahead for Risky Situations.”
