Description

Parents Forever is a family transition program for parents as they continue to parent together through a divorce or separation, parents who are divorced and experiencing challenges with co-parenting, and for never-married parents when they decide to parent apart. Children need safety, care and freedom from parental conflict, as well as love and limits from both parents.

WHAT IS COVERED IN THIS COURSE?

  • Taking care of yourself
  • Taking care of your children
  • Being successful with co-parenting

WHY SHOULD I TAKE THIS COURSE?

Divorce can be a challenging and painful transition that children experience differently than adults. The distress of the adults involved in a divorce can interfere with their ability to respond to their children and their children’s needs.
The tools and information shared in this course help parents minimize stress for themselves and their children and improve adjustments to this life transition.

TESTIMONIALS

"I think this was really a great and practical class. I was dreading it because I thought I'd be overwhelmed with guilt. I appreciated the hope that was portrayed in the presentation and positive attitude that was presented with important ideas." - Parents Forever participant

"In my experience, Parents Forever™ is a vital component to any divorce involving children. The program benefits the entire family unit and I'm grateful to have this resource available in McKenzie County."  - District Court Judge
