Program Information

Focus on Kids is a court-mandated program for divorcing parents who have minor children. 

Today, more than half of all marriages end in divorce, and a majority of these involve children.  Due to the nature of divorce, conflict between parents can often arise, which can then negatively affect the children involved. 

 

So, what does the class teach me?

This program emphasizes the importance of sustained involvement by both parents in their child's life. 

The two and half hour workshop covers:

  • The effect of divorce on children

  • Children's reactions to divorce

  • Helping children cope with divorce

  • Effective co-parenting

 

Upcoming classes

Classes are held twice a month on Wednesday.
