Raising children between two homes is a challenging task. And when families experience transitions, children especially need and deserve the love, care and support of both their parents. For this reason, The Parenting Center’s Co-Parenting program provides comprehensive support, education and guidance designed to help parents keep their children safe and happy throughout the transition. Our dynamic services are offered to parents, step-families, grandparents, and children and include classes, consultation and mediation.
• Co-Parenting Essentials: Designed to help prevent problems resulting from divorce and to keep children out of the middle of conflict.
• Kids First: To help adults explore how children perceive divorce and litigation.
Both classes uphold the basic concept of empowering family members to look at their situation from a more effective point of view, make better decisions and focus on the most important people in their lives: their children. Participants learn how to make better choices themselves, and also discover the various professional services that are available to them.

COUR FAMILY WIZARD ONLINE TOOL:
The Parenting Center encourages those in co-parenting relationships to use Our Family Wizard, an online communication platform. This tool allows the co-parenting parties to view private and shared family calendars that allow parents to record activities, trade days; post protected messages; and add notifications and reminders about important dates or plans. It also includes a family journal; an expense log; and an info bank to share health records, emergency contact information and much more.
A subscription is $99 per parent per year. For every parent who uses this link, The Parenting Center will receive a share of the costs, allowing the agency to provide scholarships to clients who need financial assistance for these classes and services.
