Parent education programs make divorcing parents or parents living in separate homes aware of the needs of their children during and after the divorce process and when children are parented in separate homes. Court-sponsored parent education programs incorporate a video entitled The Most Important Job that provides guidance for parents from professionals as well as from the child''s perspective. Topics include what children need, developmental stages of children, communication tips, conflict, parenting from two homes, well-being, safe and effective parenting, as well as parenting styles.

Please participate when you can focus without distraction.
