We provide a range of educational parenting programs to support parents and carers in situations that test the strength of relationships and endurance of primary care givers.

Our Psychologists are accredited to teach specific parenting courses, including:

1-2-3 Magic

Parenting skills for parents of children 2-12 years

This three-session group parenting program provides tools and strategies for parents and carers to:

  • Encourage children to stop doing the things that drive you crazy (like arguing, temper tantrums and fighting) and start doing the things you want them to do (tidy rooms, get dressed etc.)
  • Learn ways to effectively discipline children without arguing, yelling or smacking
  • Increase your self-esteem

Learning Links’ psychologists run the program over three weeks, with a two-hour session each week. Parents receive a hard-copy workbook with practical tips and information to use at home.

The program is running online via Zoom in March and face-to-face in April, exclusively for families in the Bayside, Georges River and Sutherland local government areas.

Triple P

Triple P doesn’t tell you how to be a parent. It’s more like a toolbox of ideas where you choose the strategies you need and the way you want to use them. It’s all about making parenting work for you.

The three Ps in ‘Triple P’ stand for ‘Positive Parenting Program’ which means it focuses on ways to make your family life much more enjoyable.

Triple P helps you:

  • Raise happy, confident kids
  • Manage misbehaviour so everyone in the family enjoys life more
  • Set rules and routines that everyone respects and follows
  • Encourage behaviour you like
  • Take care of yourself as a parent
  • Feel confident you’re doing the right thing
