Summary of "Do parents of children with metabolic diseases benefit from the Triple P - Positive Parenting Program? A pilot study."

Background Parents of children with metabolic diseases report more parenting stress, anxiety, depression and dysfunctional parenting styles than parents of children without metabolic diseases. In addition, their children have more behavioral problems. Beside the fact that metabolic diseases are rare, they form a relatively large proportion in the morbidity and mortality of chronically ill children. Methods In this pilot study 14 parents of children with metabolic diseases, aged between 2.5 and 13 years, participated in a quasi-experimental pre-post-follow-up study. Results After participating in the Level 4 Group Triple P-program there were small effects in decreasing child behavioral problems and large effects in decreasing dysfunctional parenting styles. There was a moderate to large reduction of parental stress and a large reduction of parental anxiety. Only the effects on the behavioral problems and the parenting style 'laxness' were no longer significant at 6 months follow-up. Conclusions In summary it can be said that the existing Triple P-program has good effects, with a great degree of satisfaction, for parents of children with metabolic diseases in reducing dysfunctional parenting styles, parenting stress and behavioral problems of their children. One should not wait for a specialized program to reach these parents, but further research is necessary as a greater effect can be expected when this program is adapted to these parents.
