Over twenty organizations in Elkhart County are joining with HEA and Child and Parent Services (CAPS) to put evidence-based parenting strategies in the hands of ALL parents in our community. Parent-child relationships lay the foundation for positive social and emotional development, school achievement and future physical and mental health. Despite the importance of parenting and the positive role that parenting programs can play, most programs reach a small number of parents. The majority of parents receive very little support in dealing with the everyday challenges of raising children. Evidence-based parenting practices offer the single most powerful means of enhancing the health, well-being and prosperity of individual families and the larger community. Triple P gives parents simple and practical strategies to help them confidently manage their children’s behavior, prevent problems from developing and build strong, healthy relationships.
