13 March, 2020 –
Parents, carers and school students will soon have access to more information and advice on how to deal with cyberbullying.
Triple P International will receive more than $696,000 from the Palaszczuk Government to expand its Positive Parenting Program (Triple P) to target cyberbullying, delivering on Recommendation 10 of the Premier’s Anti-Cyberbullying Taskforce report.
This latest funding is in addition to the Queensland Government’s financial support of Triple P International to train practitioners to deliver its universal parenting program via phone consultations, one-on-one sessions, or group sessions.
Triple P will host more than 280 seminars for parents and carers at state schools around the state, starting soon, to provide additional support around helping children to safely navigate online platforms and interactions.
They will also train up to 100 school staff who can deliver the programs across the state.
New Triple P parent tip sheets on Digital Wellbeing and Screentime will also be made available to Queensland parents and carers.
The Premier’s Anti-Cyberbullying Taskforce recommended we put in place initiatives to support parents and carers to become actively involved in the prevention and management of bullying and cyberbullying behaviour.
Triple P already do a fantastic job providing support to Queensland parents, and this new funding will mean they can support parents even more.
Queensland families can find a local session, provider or access free online Triple P programs at www.triplep-parenting.net
