    Parents are forever. Although parents can divorce each other, their children are not divorceable. Each parent is responsible for nurturing and creating their children's sense of security and well-being — even through the divorce process. Focus on Kids was designed to help you with that task.

    What will I gain?

    After attending Focus On Kids, which is only two and one-half hours long, you will:

    ? Understand the importance of ongoing, supportive and nurturing involvement by both parents.

    ? Receive information on both children’s and adolescents’ developmental needs, abilities and common reactions to divorce.

    ? Learn specific behaviors that help in a coparenting situation and those that should be avoided.


    Pre-registration is required for each parent.

    A $25 per-person fee, payable by cash or check to Buchanan County Extension, can be paid in advance, or immediately prior to the start of class.

    To register and for more information: Call the Buchanan County Extension Office at 816.279.1691.

     What else do I need to know?

    ? You and the other parent must attend on separate dates.

    ? Childcare is not provided so children are not allowed to attend.

    ? Sign-in and sign-out is required. Plan to arrive 10 minutes early and to stay for the entire two hour session.

    ? Attendance is confirmed after you have completed a session.
