What is the Positive Parenting Program?
Through our Positive Parenting Program(Triple P), Parents by Choice offers parenting groups designed to reduce stress and improve the atmosphere of your home at no cost. Triple P doesn't tell adults how to parent. Rather, it introduces simple and practical strategies parents can adopt to suit their own values, beliefs and needs. In this program, you will learn skills and techniques that you can put into practice right away!
We offer a variety of groups for parents(young children, teens and co-parenting families). Please see the list below for more information about the different groups. Each of our groups are relaxed and casual, and will help you build on the skills and knowledge you already have.
- It all starts with a call or click here.
- Our groups are offered at various locations in Stockton and Manteca.
- Childcare for children 1 - 10 years old is provided at most groups. Please contact us to verify that the class you want has childcare.
- Our approach is non-judgmental and supportive. We are here to help you!
- The information in the Positive Parenting Program is evidence-based, which means it has been used with a variety of families and has been proven to work.
Classes are also offered in Spanish!

My 10 year-old son told me: 'Dad, you've changed a lot! You are much calmer than before. Can Mom take that class, too?
