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


The three Ps in ‘Triple P’ stand for ‘Positive Parenting Program’ which means your family life is going to be 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

The HUB Child & Family Centre will be offering the following seminars upcoming:

1. The Power of Positive Parenting on Monday, October 16th from 1:00 to 3:00 pm

“Baby Club” Baby Group Activity – Baby Yoga with Melanie

November 8, 2017 1:00pm

Yoga helps adults gain a better mastery of how their bodies move, and babies are no different. After being crunched up in a safe, secure womb for nine months, the space and possibility of movement in the outside world can be overwhelming. Yoga to the rescue!

Gaining spatial sense provides your baby with confidence. Being assisted through simple yoga poses with a caring guide builds social skills and relationships. Yoga assists babies in very practical developmental skills, too, such as learning to roll over, tummy time and crawling.

Always make sure you have a willing participant when you have your baby do yoga. Make practice fun and a bonding time. Never force a baby to go into a pose or stay in a pose longer than she seems to be comfortable. She might stay there one breath or several. Sometimes, a yoga pose may not even last one full breath; it's the movement and consciousness of space and connection you're after — not perfection. (taken from Livestrong.Com)

Baby Yoga takes place during our weekly Baby Club on Wednesday, November 8th from 1:00-2:00pm.

Melanie Veenstra facilitates the class.
