Conflict Resolution and Parallel Parenting Program

Everything you do today will affect your child’s tomorrow.

Parallel parenting is a tool to help reduce conflict and keep parents involved with their children. The stress of parental separation can be a strong indicator of everything from poor grades to antisocial behavior in children. By reducing the conflict between you, your child is able to love and spend time with each parent without feeling guilty, responsible, or in trouble.

Goals & Objectives

The main objective of the program is to help parents in conflict become more mindful of their children's needs. They learn to be respectful, supportive, and cooperative in their co-parenting relationship in order to create a new family structure that is loving and nurturing. During our weekly sessions, parents learn to:

Lessen their conflict, reduce anger, and implement problem-solving skills.

Find common ground on their differences by improving communication.

Reduce tension and stress.

Work cooperatively to keep their children out of their conflict.
