Because you love your child more than you dislike the other parent.
Co-Parenting is a choice parents make to focus on the needs of their children while parenting from separate homes. Even with the best of circumstances, co-parenting can be difficult due to past hurts, different parenting styles, and adjusting to a new lifestyle. This 4-hour, Court-approved parenting class, "Two Parents, Two Homes" provides participants with knowledge and skills regarding:
Keeping children out of parental differences and conflict
Understanding parenting responsibilities
Specific needs of children during this transition
Strategies for reducing and resolving conflict
Understanding financial responsibilities
Improving communicating with children and the other parent
The one thing to agree on when you can't agree on anything else.
Conflict is natural and normal. We all experience it in our lives, whether with family members, coworkers, or individuals in our community. Often our conflicts are disagreements minor enough that they can be easily resolved or worked around. Occasionally, however, disagreements grow beyond the point where an easy solution is possible.
Mediation can help.
Mediation is a form of dispute resolution.
Mediation can be used to resolve almost any issue in families, workplaces, neighborhoods, churches, and communities.
Mediation has a higher success (80-90%) and compliance rate than court-imposed judgment, according to the American Bar Association.
Mediation is a process in which a neutral (the mediator) facilitates communication between the parties and, without deciding the issues or imposing a solution on the parties, enables them to understand and to reach a mutually agreeable resolution to their dispute.
If you have questions please call our office 540-552-1200. We will gladly talk with you at no cost and provide general information.
