Brisbane based parenting program provider Triple P has launched a suite of online tools and resources designed to help take the anxiety and stress out of parenting for new mums and dads.
Triple P says the free, self-directed online program is supported by comprehensive university research and is an “Australian-first”.
Triple P International Country Director, Carol Markie-Dadds, said amid increasing awareness of perinatal and postnatal anxiety and depression for both mothers and fathers, Triple P Online for Baby is a welcome support in Australia for expectant parents and those with newborns and infants.
“Becoming a parent is a big change. Most parents-to-be and new parents feel a mix of emotions from joy and excitement to uncertainty, and sometimes sadness or worry,” Markie-Dadds said.
“Parents can positively nurture their baby’s development right from the start with Triple P Online for Baby. The program’s online toolkit is full of tips and ideas – what you need to know, plus the topics that can be tricky to talk about, like uncomfortable emotions and partner conflict.”
Markie-Dadds said the Triple P Online for Baby program makes it easier for parents to:
- create the best environment for their baby’s development
- learn a variety of strategies to cope with crying
- understand baby sleep patterns and healthy sleep habits
- promote their baby’s social and cognitive development
- take care of their own emotional and mental health
- improve their relationship with their partner / other family members
- review and maintain progress, and feel comfortable seeking further support as needed
- enjoy life as a new parent a lot more.
Emma McBride , Assistant Minister for Mental Health and Suicide Prevention said, “As the Assistant Minister for Mental Health and Suicide Prevention, I’m proud to support programs like Triple P Online for Baby which is evidence-based and supports perinatal mental health for new and expectant parents and carers.”
“As we recognise Perinatal Mental Health Week, it’s important for parents and carers to know there is support available when and if they need help,” she said.
Triple P says Online for Baby has undergone many years of research and clinical trials in various countries and the program, when delivered face-to-face, “helped parents feel less anxious and depressed, and more confident”.
“Mothers reported enhanced bonding with their baby; babies were less likely to cry; and babies showed improved developmental outcomes for cognitive, motor and language skills.
“The Triple P Online for Baby program allows parents and carers to adapt useful strategies to suit their needs. With no financial cost, travel, or childcare to worry about, parents can do the online modules at their own pace and see their parenting confidence improve as they progress through the course.”
“Positive parenting helps create a healthy, loving family environment that promotes learning and communication. This builds the foundation for positive relationships and mental health throughout a child’s life,” Markie-Dadds said.
Triple P says parents and carers can sign up now and get positive parenting strategies at: www.triplep-parenting.net.au,
Triple P Online for Baby is free in Australia due to funding from the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care under the Parenting Education and Support Program.
ENABLE HYBRID CLOUD & REDUCE NETWORK LATENCY WHITEPAPER
Hybrid cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling businesses to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control that you can get from your on-premise infrastructure.
Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. Taking advantage of compression and data deduplication can reduce your network latency.
Research firm, Markets and Markets, predicted that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from US$38.27 billion in 2017 to US$97.64 billion by 2023.
Colocation facilities provide many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud while still maintaining physical control of your systems.
Cloud adjacency provided by colocation facilities can enable you to leverage their low latency high bandwidth connections to the cloud as well as providing a solid connection back to your on-premises corporate network.
