Focus on Kids
More than half of all marriages
end in divorce, and the majority of these involve children.
Conflict between parents, both before and after a divorce, is
associated with many negative outcomes in children. The purpose
of the FOK program is to help parents learn how to nurture and
support their children during and after their divorce.
Focus on Kids satisfies the
Missouri law that requires parents who are divorcing to attend
an educational parenting program. It is conducted in cooperation
with Missouri’s circuit courts.
