Co-parenting is a choice parents make to focus on the needs of their children while parenting from separate homes. Even in the best of circumstances, co-parenting can be difficult due to past hurts and different parenting styles. This four-hour, court-approved parenting class "Two Parents, Two Homes" will equip you with knowledge and skills to co-parent peacefully. You will learn to:
Keep children out of parental conflict
Clarify parenting responsibilities
Identify your child's needs during this transition
Reduce and resolve conflict
Determine financial responsibilities
Improve communication with your children and the other parent

This was a wonderful alternative to court and the mediator was amazing. I really am pleased that mediation was offered and it worked great! Thanks so much!
Exceptional training! I learned new information that can be immediately applied. So much information to be shared ... I wish the training was longer!

I left this training with an arsenal of how to improve my communication with my kids so that my expectations are clear and they know their feelings are important and valid.
