This is a one-time, three and one-half hour class. The focus is on what parents can do to help make it possible for their children to make a positive short- and long-term adjustment to having two homes.
• The differences between how parents and children experience the break-up of a family
• Short- and long-term effects on children of being caught in the middle
• Specific ways parents and other family members can be sensitive and responsive to children’s needs during stressful times
• “Modern” parenting plans (time share) that make it possible for both parents to be actively involved in their children’s lives
• Communications skills parents living apart can use to co-parent more effectively
• Ways to guide other family members, new significant others included, to be part of the solution, rather than part of the problem
• Available in San Bernardino and Murrieta
