A Regional Approach to Service Delivery through Parenting Support Providers

MSF has appointed ten Parenting Support Providers (PSPs) 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 two 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.


About the Positive Parenting Program (Triple P)

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 have found that Triple P has positive effects on parenting and child outcomes in the Singapore context. Parents reported greater parenting competence, lower parenting stress, improved emotional states and reduced behavioural problems in children. Parents also reported sustained reduction of around 20% in both their children’s problematic behaviour scores (competency) and parenting stress (confidence) scores 3 months after completing the programme.

 

Triple P Level 2 Seminar Series Three seminars of two hours each for parents of primary and secondary school children for parents who are coping well with their children’s needs.

Triple P Level 2 Seminar Series for parents with children up to 12 years old
• Seminar 1: Positive parenting
• Seminar 2: Raising confident, competent children
• Seminar 3: Raising resilient children

Triple P Level 2 Seminar Series for parents with teenagers up to 16 years old
• Seminar 1: Raising responsible teenagers
• Seminar 2: Raising competent teenagers
• Seminar 3: Getting teenagers connected

Triple P Level 3 4 one-to-one consultation sessions for parents who may require more help with children who display mild to moderate behavioural difficulties.
Triple P Level 4 5 group sessions, followed by 3 phone consultation sessions for parents of children with severe behavioural difficulties who may require targeted, intensive and active parenting training.
Triple P Online (TPOL) An online programme that allows parents to complete parenting modules independently, in their own time, from a computer, tablet or smartphone. Parents have online access to the programme for 12 months. Triple P Online provides parents with a toolbox of strategies that help them to encourage positive behaviour and to prevent and manage misbehaviour.

Through this interactive course, parents can learn at their own time and pacing, and pick up simple and practical strategies to confidently manage children’s behaviour. The course consists of videos, exercises, tips and activities, suitable for parents of children and teens.

TPOL for Toddlers to Tweens (0-12 years old) : Consisting of 8 modules
TPOL for Pre-teens and Teens (10-16 years old): Consisting of 6 modules

Each module takes around 30 minutes to complete. Parents can save their progress at any point of the module and can complete sessions at their own pace.


About Signposts (for Primary Schools Only)

Signposts is an evidence-based programme that equips parents with skills to help them understand, prevent and manage their child’s difficult behaviour through the development of a personalised programme that suits the unique needs of their child. Parents are also taught to develop strategies to prevent and manage difficult behaviour.

5 weekly group sessions x 2.5-hours/session
