10 Parenting Support Providers (PSPs) were appointed by the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) to deliver parenting support services on a regional basis. PSPs work closely with schools and community partners in their allocated regions to support parents through evidence-based parenting programmes and referrals to services depending on parents’ needs.
The PSPs offer 2 evidence-based programmes – Positive Parenting Program (Triple P) and Signposts. To sign up, parents may contact the PSPs serving their child’s school or their region or approach the child’s school Teacher-In-Charge of Parenting Programmes.
Parents with children up to 6 years old may also sign up for our new parenting programmes – WiseJourneys and Purposeful Play to share parental experiences with follow daddies and mummies journeying together, practice mindful parenting, and pick up everyday, practical ways to communicate effectively with your child and engage them in purposeful playtime!
The Positive Parenting Programme (Triple P) is an evidence-based programme that equips parents with techniques to promote their children’s (aged up to 16 years) psychological, social and emotional competence. Triple P is built on a tiered system that provides different degrees of parental support.
MSF’s evaluation studies found that the evidence-based Positive Parenting Programme (also known as Triple P), has positive effects on parenting and child outcomes in Singapore.
About 85% of parents endorsed the programme as being relevant to their parenting needs. Parents with secondary school-going children showed a sustained 31% reduction in their emotional distress scores, and a 22% reduction in their child’s problematic behavioural scores. Parents with primary school-going children sustained a 15% improvement in their parenting satisfaction and efficacy scores, and an 18 % reduction in their child’s problematic behavioural scores.
[NEW!] The Triple P Level 2 seminar series is now available for Grandparents! This research-based programme helps grandparents strengthen their bond with their grandchildren which benefits the grandchild’s emotional development and wellbeing.
