For Kids' Sake
Divorce is a painful and confusing time for children. The For Kids' Sake seminar focuses on understanding the effects of divorce on children, talking to children about family changes, avoiding placing children in the middle, maintaining parent/child relationships, and co-parenting skills. Class participants will receive a certificate at the end of the class. The 4 hour seminar is offered twice a month. Online courses WILL NOT be accepted by the court. Click here for schedule.
Abuse and violence within the home have damaging and lasting effects on children. Home Front participants learn new communication skills, anger management, conflict resolution, and alternative ways to discipline. Participants overwhelmingly comment that Home Front is a supportive and worthwhile course. Certificates are issued at the end of the 4 week course. Click here for schedule.

Classes are tailored for parents of young children and a separate class for parents of teenagers. The 4 week series is offered each month and is offered to anyone who cares for children.
