“Kids are amazing and bring so much joy to our lives, but it doesn’t mean that parenting is always easy,” says rugby league legend Corey Parker.
Parker is the face of the State Government’s campaign to provide free parenting support across Queensland, including here on the Gold Coast, through Triple P (the Positive Parenting Program) – the brainchild of world-renowned parenting expert Professor Matt Sanders.
Child Safety Minister Shannon Fentiman said more than 70 Triple P seminars will be held across Queensland in the coming months.

“In [the last] year, we’ve seen almost 30,000 Queenslanders access the program,”said Minister Fentiman.
“This means thousands of families have new tips to help them raise happy, confident children, balance work and family and respond to challenging child and teen behaviours that may occur.”
Triple P Ambasador Corey Parker is a father of four kids. He says there’s no shame in seeking parenting help, tips and support.
“Learning as much as you can through Triple P about how to raise a happy, resilient family so you can prevent small issues from becoming major problems can make parenting a lot easier.
“Thousands of parents have benefited from Triple P – including me,” said Mr Parker.
