Does it work?

If you're going to invest your time doing a parenting program, you want to be confident that you will get results. Stepping Stones is part of the Triple P – Positive Parenting Program – one of the few parenting programs in the world with scientific evidence to back it up.


Triple P has been tested with thousands of families over more than 35 years. In fact, there are now more than 690 international trials, studies and published papers that show Triple P works for most families.


Stepping Stones Triple P has been shown to help reduce kids' problem behaviour and reduce children's emotional problems. It has also helped parents feel more confident, less angry and less stressed. Now that's a positive!


We are constantly working to improve Stepping Stones Triple P, and the Stepping Stones Triple P Project takes the research another step forward. The project looks at how to provide better access to the program, and evaluates the impact of the program on all families of children with a disability.


If you take part in the parenting support offered through the Stepping Stones Triple P Project, our research team will be in contact with you to ask about your experience of the program. Your answers will help us learn how we can best support families like yours.
