Co-Parenting

Parents who are divorcing or  living in separate residences often struggle to find balance between parenting styles.  This seminar helps them gain insight into their children’s developmental needs and learn co-parenting skills.  Being a parent isn’t easy, yet knowledge & support from parent coaches can make a lifetime of difference for families.

Parents recently deployed, separated, divorcing, or facing family changes find this course helps guide families through times of transition.  Changes are difficult, and separation often brings feelings of loss and grief… especially for children.
