I wish every single Judge presiding over family law cases ordered divorcing parties
with children to this class.”

“Being a parent is hard, being a co-parent is harder.  The focus of this course is to teach you how to
​co-parent.  It’s great if you can both do your part, but it only takes one parent​for your child to follow.”
​– Carlos U. Pembroke Pines

Co-parent because it matters.

You brought your children into this world with the desire to be a good parent and make a good life for them. Your former relationship may have ended, but you can still make this dream a reality – it just takes learning a few new skills.
