      (For Parents/Caregivers of Children Any Age) Many children transition between two homes when their parents are no longer together. Children do best in an atmosphere that provides consistency, structure, routine and predictability.  How can parents best help them to adapt as they navigate the process of moving from home to home?  In addition to giving parents tools to support their children, this class discusses ways for parents to interact and communicate with each other in the best interest of their children and to minimize conflict.
