How can we help?

When we become parents, we want to be the very best Mum or Dad that we can be, but may feel unsure of our ability. All parents and carers need extra help and advice now and then.  There are so many websites around now that contain some very useful information for parents. It would be impossible to provide a comprehensive list of helpful sites but what we want to do is to provide links we have found to sites that we feel are particularly good with practical and expert advice to help with demanding situations, giving you confidence to enjoy your life with your kids. You can check out our ‘Useful Information’ tab at the bottom of the page for links to housing, benefits, bereavement and domestic violence.

We are also open to those of you who  browse our site to contact us with other sites you have discovered for inclusion in these pages. Feel free to e-mail us and we will check out what you have found.

You can find more information about different age groups on the above tabs and can book directly onto a parenting course in your area by looking though our Book Sessions tab.

Parenting advice line

The parenting advice line will be open every Thursday, 11am to 1pm. Please call us on 01424 725800 to speak to a parenting practitioner for free advice and guidance on supporting your parenting journey and understanding how your child communicates through their behaviour. Available for parents anywhere in East Sussex with children aged 2-teen.

What session should I book on?

We have given a basic outline of all our courses below to help you select the right course for you.

Stepping Stones –  This group can help you manage problem behaviour and development issues common in children with a disability or additional needs, diagnosed or undiagnosed. It helps you encourage behaviour you like, cope with stress, teach your child new skills and build better family relationships.

Discussion Group – a one-off two hour discussion held on specific topics such as hassle free outings, or coping with teenage emotions.  Meet with other parents and gain tips and advice on how to manage situations which you find particularly difficult.

Primary Care Triple P – If your child has particular behaviour problems that is making family life more difficult than it should, Primary Care Triple P gives guidance that is tailored to help you with specific issues. It will be just you (your partner if you wish) and a Triple P provider and is for parents and carers of children from birth – 12 years.

Group Triple P can help by giving you support to help manage your child’s behaviour and prevent the kinds of problems that make your family life stressful.  Meet other parents in similar situations. From the start you will get tips and suggestions to fit the needs of your family. Your workbook will give you tools and information to start positive parenting right away at home.  Group Triple P is up to four group sessions with other parents in weekly two hour sessions as well as a few weeks for home practice together with phone advice and support from your Triple P provider and a final group session to go over any questions.

On-line Triple P – if you find it particularly difficult to attend a session or group the online course may be just what you are looking for.  Contact us for more details and we will provide you with telephone support and an on-line course giving you tips and advice.

    Parenting Tips
  • This has been a very helpful course-thank you. After a year of post-natal depression, I now feel a lot more confident and happier as a parent. This course is beneficial in numerous ways.

    - Emma, Mum

  • Following on from the strategy you have given me my daughter's behaviour is so much better and tantrums easier to manage. I'm over the moon with your service and just thought I would let you know.

    - Tom, Single dad

  • I thought I had been implementing strategies but I realised I wasn’t doing them effectively or consistently and triple p has highlighted that to me- now I always go over to my child, get down on her level and speak rather than calling or shouting.

    - Fay, Carer

  • Was really great. So much more to it then I realised, I really thought it was going to be stuff I already knew but it was way more than that.

    - Julie, Grandma
