I'm currently recruiting clients to join a co-parenting group. The group meets once a week for 8 weeks. It is very affordable, just $25 per session ($200 total).
It may be comforting to know that most children adapt quite quickly post parent split up if a couple of things are in place: 1. Parents resolve any ongoing and persistent conflict between themselves. 2. The children return to a consistent and predictable routine. And 3. They can maintain a healthy and happy relationship with each parent without interference from the other parent.
Of course, there are many heartaches and unmet wishes a child of divorce may have. Like they might hope their parents get back together. This is very common, but this unmet wish is something they will understand with time. It isn't something that they will carry with them forever. Ongoing and persistent conflict, unpredictable parenting, and fear of ridicule or disappointing a parent has much further reaching consequences.
This group is designed to help parents resolve ongoing conflict between each other that involves parenting matters, helps you get in touch with your child's experience, and introduces parenting strategies so that your child has as consistent and predictable a life as possible.
If you're interested, or know someone that might be, give me a call or shoot me an email! I also offer co-parenting sessions on an individual basis.
