“There is no such thing as a "broken family.". Family is family, and is not determined by marriage certificates, divorce papers, and adoption documents. Families are made in the heart.
DIVORCE PARENTING CLASS
Divorce is not easy on the parents or the children. Families have increasingly relied on the courts to resolve divorce issues and problems including child custody, visitation, child support, paternity, emergency protective orders, and restraining orders.
As a result, courts have found that parental conflict related to divorce is a societal concern because children suffer potential short-term and long-term detrimental economic, emotional, and educational effects during times of family transition due to divorce. To address this concern, Illinois Supreme Court mandates parenting education classes.
There’s this notion that parents after divorce should always be parallel to each other. In fact, there are many issues of parents fighting after their divorce. The reality is that there’s no more communication that supports conflict between you and your spouse in this mater. You are already divorced and the only thing keeping you close to each other are the children. For this reason, you need to be able to solve your conflict without involving them. Divorce parenting classes will teach parents how to cope with the situation and how to avoid direct confrontations with each other. Co-parenting classes will help you to create a healthy environment for both of you and your children.
Although most of the people think that it is obvious to take care of the children from different households, there’s a lot that parenting classes can help you know.
Divorce parenting classes will give you a clear picture of how life will be like in the future and give you all the strategies that you need to overcome any parenting challenge. In this parenting class, you will also learn about different matters that you will face while you are co-parenting such as sharing expenses, communicating to your children, sharing information across households and handling time schedules.
