The parenting of children takes place in many different kinds of contexts. To avoid a “one-size-fits-all” approach, evidence-based parenting programs must adapt to and accommodate the diverse needs of families in a community. These needs can change over time in an individual family. This section of the book illustrates the flexibility and robustness of the Triple P system in addressing the needs of different types of families. Individual chapters discuss the application of Triple P to working parents, fathers, grandparents, parents with mental health problems, and parents who have been through separation or divorce. The success of these efforts is related to gaining a clear understanding of the context within which parenting tasks and responsibilities are undertaken.
