Raising a child in different homes can be challenging at times. FairField’s Meeting in the Middle class focuses on co-parenting through separation and divorce. It provides parents and caregivers with the opportunity to think critically about what is best for their child and how they can work together to accomplish it.
Some of the topics that will be discussed are:
- Developmental stages of children
- Options for dealing with conflict
- Improving communication skills
- Co-parenting and parallel parenting
Why should I take the class?
The class helps parents and caretakers understand how their words and actions have an impact on their children. It provides information to co-parents so that they may provide a healthy and happy lifestyle for their children. Although separation will change how families work, co-parents can still be a source of stability and comfort for their children as long as they commit to resolving conflict within their shared parenting in a peaceful and productive manner.
How much does it cost?
The class is free for individuals who make less than $40,000 OR are a client of Department of Child Support Enforcement (DCSE) AND agree to have their name released for grant purposes
For all others, it costs $50 for the class, payable before the class begins.
