Online Co-parenting Classes
Sep 19, 2013 | Written by: Share|
In Wayne County Indiana, the court system created a rule that requires all divorcing parents to complete co-parenting classes. The Judges from that venue reported excellent results including, reduced conflict and increased cooperation.
Unfortunately no such program or requirement exists in New Jersey at this time. However, the website, questions, information, etc. are free.
The three websites are unique tools to help parents through difficult transitions. Divorcing and divorced parents can find help at www.UpToParents.org.
Parents never married to each other can find help at www.ProudToParent.org.
Parents intending to stay married but wishing to remember their children's needs as they work through marital problems can be helped by www.WhileWeHeal.org.
"Each of the websites is a chance for parents to take an interactive timeout from their conflict to consider 50 Commitments they could make to their children in periods of conflict and stress. Our experience in working with hundreds of families is that children have critical needs at such times, that only parents can effectively answer those needs, and that parents come out much better themselves when they make protecting children their highest priority."
