The purpose of the research study was to compare pre/post data from parents participating in Triple P-Positive Parenting Program. Participants of this program were 13 parents of children enrolled in a preschool for at-risk families. Through data collection and videotaped observation, this study attempted to answer the following question: How did the use of Triple P-Positive Parenting Program change perceptions of parenting experience among parents of at-risk preschoolers? Data analysis, using two-sample t-tests, was performed to compare the Triple P Parenting Experiences Questionnaire response data pre/post. Descriptive statistical analysis was used to compare parent/child videos scored by the Keys to Interactive Parenting Scale (KIPS) pre/post Triple P. Upon completion of program, Triple P questionnaire responses showed positive changes in parenting perception, as well as parent satisfaction in the program. The study had several limitations including the data collection procedures and a small sample size of 13 participants. Future research could be done to investigate if positive co-parenting affects a parent’s perception of their experience.
