Positive parenting is an approach to raising children that aims to promote children’s optimal development. It concerns the activities of parenting that create a nurturing environment that will allow children to grow up healthy and responsible participants of a broader community. In this chapter, the five core principles of positive parenting that form the basis of Triple P are described as well as how these principles are operationalized into a range of specific parenting skills suitable for different developmental periods. The self-regulation model that acts as a central organizing framework for the provision of parenting support is reviewed along with guiding principles of program delivery, such as ensuring parents’ active participation, sufficiency, flexible tailoring and responsive delivery, and methods for supporting the generalization of skills. Finally, a number of myths about behaviorally informed parenting support programs are dispelled.
