Loved that it was online. I usually prefer live classes, but the amount of time was not possible for me as a single parent. I appreciate the candidness of some of the commentary and listening to the law specialists give their perspective.
I found it extremely helpful! Packed with ides I would have never thought of prior to taking the course.
I thought it was a great mix of print and virtual teaching. I particularly liked the videos of the judges and attorneys telling it like it is and really making you think about the consequences.
It was helpful to me cause it helped me to have better communication with the coparent make decision making with the co-parent and also helped me with how to co-parent with the children along with the co-parent.
Gave me guidelines for a healthy co-parenting relationship. A situation that I never envisioned being in. I also was never involved in a multi-home family growing up so I had little idea as to what healthy vs unhealthy meant. I was also happy to learn from this class about all of the other resources available for people trying to co-parent with a non romantic partner.
This course reaffirmed for me areas where I am doing well to serve the best interest of my children. But it also showed me where things that I was doing where I thought were in the best interest, even though done with the best of intentions could cause conflict. During the course of taking this class, I employed new learned tactics and saw a drastic change in the response from my coparent.
The information regarding possible ways to communicate and come to an
agreement outside of the court.
I liked that The Between Two Homes course demonstrated the difference between good and bad co-parenting with research-based, child-centered techniques.
What I liked about the class is that everything was broken down into different categories which was very understanding. I feel like I learned a lot more that what I already knew prior to taking this class. This is a very interesting class and I would definitely recommend it to those who it will benefit for.
I loved that the class covered so many bases. It also helped me see the areas I need to improve in my own parenting and the role that I play in the coparenting dynamic.
Easy access electronically and the way it automatically resumes in your spot when you have to exit the program and then log back on. The illustrations by video with the role play were effective (and heart-wrenching) and the judge interviews made an impact.
This class is very informative for each role a person plays in a child's life when changing to two homes. As well as legal information, videos, and lots of resources. Thank you!
I thought the class was very informative and I learned a lot. I was very impressed with the class and found a lot of value that will help to put a coparenting plan in place before we file the final decree.
The strong focus on doing what's best for the child. The content helped me see what my attorney pointed out to me about my soon-to-be co-parent already wanting to alienate me from my son's life. I now understand what a big deal this is and why he recommended the strong course of action we ended up taking.
It was good for me to learn more about the laws and how things work. I think allot of times we just listen to what other ppl say and don't do our owe research. It made me look at things related to my situation from a different perspective. There were a few things that I was unaware about that I had been doing that was putting the children in the middle, especially related to making them the messenger or exchange facilitator. It was helpful to get this information so that I am able to correct my actions in further situations.
It really helped give me a better understanding of what my children are experiencing by having to live in two homes in a high conflict case where severe alienation has occurred. Even under these circumstances, I gained a new perspective and ideas how I can help make things easier (instead of worse) for our girls. I also gained some ideas how to handle and always appropriately respond to my co-parent.
Thank you so much for many information and examples of situations that I had to know to be a co-parent. Has given me different ways to handle trying to co-parent with a not so easy other co-parent. Along with making sure i respond appropriately to my children
feelings and responses.
I thought it was most helpful to learn about some of the things you should not say to a child that makes their life more difficult. It was very informative. Practical suggestions to put child's well being first. Organized, carefully, thoughtfully, and considerately presented, and efficient.
The information I got was very clear and I liked that I could take it at home on my computer and on my own time. The class completely emphasizes how to stop looking at the situation
from an adult point of view but from the child's point of view. I actually really enjoyed the class and wish I would have known about it a lot g time ago.
This class made me realize where I can improve which I appreciate. It provides very useful information to make the transition easier on the children, and teaches you what behaviors to avoid.
I was happy I was able to do it online. As a new single mom it was important that was able to do this and still parent my child. I also liked how it helped me better understand how to handle certain situations, how informative it was. How important it is to disregard the adult problems and focus on the Child's well being.
Well-researched information, presented in a concise manner. It tells people to set your emotions aside, keep a business approach when it comes to coparenting and doing what is in the best interest of your children. It treated scenarios with different outcomes and provided real world examples on how to apply the actions being discussed. it was relate-able.
I learned so much.! It even showed me how I was wrong even when I thought I was doing some things correctly. Everyone that is involved in a child's life that will be influencing the child showed me made to take this class!
The video interviews from the judges and the scenarios provides such as how to behave if your co-parent has their new girlfriend present at a soccer game and you meet them by the water cooler.
The class covered a full Spectrum of issues that parents between two homes probably didn't even know we’re going on. I wish I would have known about this class prior to my separation and divorce! Great
This class pointed out mistakes I was making and greatly helped me reevaluate my decisions in the topics I discuss with our son. I wish I had taken this class long ago. I wont be making those mistakes in the future because of the information provided in this class.
It was easy to understand and put the situation in a perspective separated from the high emotions caused by significant change.
It has taught me different parenting alternatives to raise our child in stable appropriate home for the sake of our child, listening and communication skills. Most importantly what's best or the child in the situation.
I liked, 1. Online option 2. The videos showed helped me understand from a different point of view. 3. The emphasize to keep the child out of adult conflicts for the healthy upbringing
of the child. 4. It broke down everything and provided ways to be a better co parent. I was able to see things from both set of lens. 5. I appreciate the candor of the legal professionals interviewed.
Although I read faster than it was spoken, I actually liked listening to it. I was surprised at how informative it was, and I've already recommended it to a friend who was not ordered to take the class but could benefit. Of course there are unique circumstances in every divorce that could make some of the things in this course a little more difficult, but “everything” can’t be addressed in a 6 hour class. Kudos! I actually enjoyed this class.
Very informative, gave perspective of children's views and things that coparent's need to detract from.Very clear and easy to follow. Learned lot of good things that we all can implement for better care of children. Lot of things that we do unknowingly that can effect the child and how to avoid them as adults and parents. Good conflict preventative thinking steps.
This class was so awesome that I have now became a mentor to help kids I am also donating to some kids with a family member of mine’s back in Louisiana. I love this course so much!
I was pleased 1. How the sections were broken out, 2. Examples given re how to de-escalate
and 3. The child's perspective
Everything! I felt that the course was extremely informative and helpful! I especially liked the communication portion and the age requirement portion. I liked the fact that it was available online. I liked the pre-quiz. I liked that one could start and stop as needed. I liked that one could re-take the pre-quiz before the final test.
The information was easy to understand and is actionable by parents and other family members alike. Terms used described what my kids are going through and ads light to the
situation. Learned how to co control my actions better and I liked the videos with the real life perspective of judges and lawyers.
It opened my eyes to see how the child feels and showed me how to act and be a better co parent. I think all family's divorced or married should have to take this class if and kids are in the family. It showed me the mistakes I made as a mother. It was very informative and I gained knowledge about my situation with it.
I liked the information and the alternative things to say. I try my best and felt I do about 90% of what was told already, but the wording was definitely helpful. Also enjoyed a lot of the remarks of what to do and not to do, as I felt they were all pats on the back for me, and how it calls out a lot of the BS my sons father is currently doing so hopefully he will learn something from the course as well.
I felt that I was able to learn some different phrases and words to use when discussing the parenting plan. I also feel that I will be able to talk to my coparent better.
Everything seemed balanced well. 6 hours is a long time, but the videos were well timed. It pointed out many behaviors I've seen. I like that it provided me with better negotiation skills and communication tools to use with my co-parent and child. I also learned about some mistakes that I had made in the past with my child that I was not aware up until this course.
I enjoyed the scenarios/role plays and hearing from the judges. Some good information and reminders about effective interaction with one's Co parent. It was really informative, pointed out things that I could improve on, should have taken it years ago, some good one liners.
I liked the the fact it was offered online, so I could learn at my own pace on my own schedule. This class was very eye opening and I plan on applying what I have learned from this course immediately I think it will impact my daughter's life in a positive manner. I appreciate hearing from judges and their honest opinion. Well rounded touched base on the most important topics.
I enjoyed the information and research that went in to producing this class. I learned useful information and reflected on things that I have already known. I am extremely grateful that they offer an online version of this course!
It was surprisingly informative. It required you to look at yourself instead of blaming and looking at the other parent's faults. It taught you how to focus solely on the best interest of your child instead of your best interest.
Well presented, very informative. I really liked the real life examples on how to handle situations. Loved the options to consider the other parent point of view and meet in the middle but as a team.
What I liked about the class was the perspective I was able to obtain. I can now look at the situation through a new view and approach things more efficiently and peacefully. I loved it.
There was allot of information and perspectives that I did not think of. It also made me realize that I am on the right track in raising my child. It has great information and focuses on the children not the parents feelings, very informative and provided different views.
It was much more comprehensive than I thought it would be. This course enlightened me into how my actions would affect my child towards the co-parent that I may not have seen before. A good reminder your actions are seen by your children and can affect them. The Child's best interest is what is important and gave me a few alternative options to obtain that for the child. It was a huge eye opener on some of my own actions I have taken that can be harmful and I didn't even know I was doing it.
The easy to understand and digest online structure. This was incredibly informative and will definitely change how I co-parent and interact with our boys. Great job!
Informative and detailed. I've taken several parenting classes, psychology/ behavioral classes. The focus on the child's perspective was awesome. The alternatives to litigation, the notion of business model co-parenting rather than friendship, and the information about alienation.
Learning how to communicate better, a Child-focused nature and tools to help the adults deal with their situation and the children's perspective. It was presented in an easy to learn and understand manner. It was also educational on children's behavior and what could be happening to cause such behavior.
Very informative, very help and full of good information that not only co-parents need but all parents need. It taught me more then I thought I did. Wish I did take this voluntarily then been court ordered. And I wish all parents would take it before making big decisions for there children. Iv played both rolls of a mom and a stepmother. It's not easy either way, but everyone most definitely needs to always but the children 1st before there own actions are steps.
The information in the videos that explained how judges interpret litigation and how they conclude what an order will dictate. A I love the clinical aspect it has to it and that it addresses things from both sides not just one or the other. I love the fact that it goes through the states of grief and compares the two to each individual.
That I could both read and hear the material The gentleman's voice was pleasant, well paced, and the font is nice and large. I especially liked the videos directly from the judges with their views and passion on certain topics! This covered all of the topics that I hoped my ex would hear, and I really hope they resonate. I love that you have to continuously click "next" after a short slide or video to force people to stay engaged and not allow them to walk away or ignore the course. I appreciate the input on how to make this as easy on the kids as possible those were the bits I was looking forward to the most.
This class provides great information that I was not aware of and also helped me to see where I am failing my children and how to make better decisions for the benefit of my children. This was offered online and able to take at our own pace. The view of both sides, the child and the parents.
I like everything about this class. So many things I did not know and now I can look at it from the outside. Everything about this class was fantastic. I learned a lot about parenting in general. This class helped me to understand where mistakes were made in my
relationship, and helped me to feel much more informed about what steps I can
take to ensure the emotional stability of myself and my daughter. I feel like I can
handle the uncertainty about the future much more effectively now, because I
know what mistakes to look for. Thank you so much for creating this class.
I learned that co-parenting is going to be hard work but my Child's father and i can get through it with good communication and understanding our children's need come before ours.
I liked that it was online and could be taken at your own pace. I also appreciated the variety of information.
I liked the composition of the course, it moved quickly along and changed slides frequently so as not to get bored. I liked the examples to show us what was just discussed. The speaker was clear. I liked the opportunity to take breaks or even close and come back to where you left off, working at my own pace. Lots of practical information for how to be successful coparent's I especially enjoyed the insight from other attorneys and judges that have dealt with these types of situations.
The information was solidly research-based but presented in a very accessible way that wasn't insulting or demeaning.It showed me how to coparent with my child's dad. How to explain others not to be decorators to the other parent. I really recommend this class to all parents and friends around. I also liked hearing from the judges and attorneys and watching the videos that showed how the children were feeling when they were put in the middle.
Great use of video and scenarios. The information was very relevant and use of real world examples were very helpful. I was under the impression that this was a course where both parents needed to attend online together, had I known otherwise, I would have taken this
course much earlier.
It was informative and I believe it made me see my situation in a different light......
i like all the detailed information giving to me. i thought the videos were very insightful.
It was very informative to help me be a better parent and also helped me learn legal names to different situations to better inform the judge like rigid, alienation, and co-parenting detractors vs supporters. I really liked this class! I enjoyed hearing from the judges and watching the do's and don't's videos. Excellent Job!!
Provided me with another view of how I can make sure I am protecting my children by not saying the wrong things about their dad. It can be difficult, because of the anger and aggressive nature he carries. He acts disgusted by me and can't stand near me at all, which has made important doctor visits a challenge. I keep trying, but I need to also move on to know how to set boundaries (next class) and to stand firm. It has to be the best interest of the kids.
It gave me information about how to make coparenting work; fills information
gap between client and attorney. Alternative and more professional ways to talk about things with the other parent.
It definitely was amazing!!! I hope one day it will be required for all parents to take upon filing for divorce! Save the children from being in the middle! I absolutely again, loved this class!
I liked the input you had from attorney's and judges. This helps to better understand their thought process in a situation that can be very intimidating and scary. I like that I was able to attend the class on my own timing and complete the course. Very user friendly.
The information was presented in a clear and positive manner. The examples and analogies were very helpful. I really appreciated hearing the judge's and attorney's perspectives as well. I have taken several parenting classes but this was by far the best from a content, delivery, and data standpoint, plus it delivered real, applicable solutions.
Good information for defusing arguments and the ability to communicate more peacefully. Learning not to say i will miss you i didn't realize it puts emotional burdens on my child.
THIS CLASS WAS GREAT AND EXPLAINED IN DETAIL EVERYTHING AND VERY INDERSTANDABLE.
I learned how to handle situations better and to really sit back and think before I react to different things and really think more of my daughter and focusing on really being a better parent and to co parent better than I have been!
It will make me a better co parent and father to my son as far as co-parenting goes.
I would say, I wish there was more content, but I see that there are other classes that expand upon other more specific topics. I may take these classes just for the sake of informing myself. About halfway through this class I couldn't help but think - if our couples
counselor had taken this class, we would have had more constructive discussions... but I know this is anecdotal.
Implement this as mandatory when temporary orders are placed and parents have to complete course before the final orders will be signed.
I cannot think of any improvements. This was a very impressive class with an
equally impressive handbook.
I liked the child portion - seeing things from their eyes. The videos, it was very educational and i learned words to define behavior i have seen in other people that is very unhealthy. i also learned information about the court process which was good. overall very good information to have for all parents to know.
I liked the narrator, the input from the judges and the examples provided as well as how thorough the information was presented.
One main thing I liked was that the text was read aloud while you read along with it. It was like getting the information two times in one. It was full of good information.
How much of an eye opener it is. Even though I may not be at fault for some of the things it taught me how to better to react to the agitator and to do what's best for my child in all circumstances. This course was extremely beneficial, my now wife took this course with me as well and as a step parent she found this course really beneficial as well. I wish we could've been ordered to take this course when we submitted our temporary orders so we could've been better coparent's to agree better before final orders were submitted.
It was information i had never thought of before. I think I'm a better parent because of it!
This Class helps two families between two homes raise a productive child.
I liked the content, judge's view points and focus on children. I liked the presentation. The videos were especially helpful. A lot of beneficial information.
I like how it was easily available to me. I have a very tight and busy schedule; this allowed me to do this class on my own time and it was very informative in a lot of areas I wasn't too aware of.
Instead of only ordering the courses in court, I believe there should be options for this in pamphlets around the courthouse and around the community for parents to be aware of the program. Or if a parent is getting remarried for their new partner "step-parent" to be ordered to take the course if the parent has a co-parent involved still.
Online at your own pace format was good. It was informative and non-judgmental with the focus of making everyone better for the sake of the children.
I like that this whole test is developed to improve "your self" for your child. It helps you with a lot of pointers on how not to bring your child in the middle of the mess us parents have created. And helps us to understand what our children may be thinking through this process. Us as adults always think of ourselves, but this gives us a very accurate idea of what our children are thinking and feeling, and helps us to know what is good to say to our children when they come to one of the co-parents with a question and tells us what not to do for our child's sake and gives reasons why. Thank you
It was user friendly and easy to navigate. There were resources that allowed me
to identify detractors easier. It was nice in today's environment to have an online option.
I learnt about alternatives to mediation that I was not aware of. It also enlightened me to some approaches to co parenting that I have been taking that could be harming my child, that I think I can approve on. I also learnt that although my daughter is 13 and may be able to have a voice about where she would want to spend more time, that judges do not look fondly on dueling affidavits and to avoid this. I will be bringing a number of the points I learnt during this class with my lawyer. Thank you for this course, your are appreciated.
Easy to follow and comprehend, it was GREAT!
Learned how to communicate with coparent in the perspective of my child, but also learned to communicate better with my child. This will only improve the relationships. I like the videos. I liked how straight forward the class was. Nothing was sugar-coated. It was
very eye opening.
I like that it shows how children think during negative thinking and conflict only because it helps me understand what children go though and how they feel. It helped me understand my children a lot better and how i can make them not feel that way. The class addressed situations in various conditions and circumstances that I may not have thought of. It gave perspectives on all sides and the videos demonstrations depicted relatable scenarios and honest feelings of the families involved.
This helped clarify understanding for me between the lens of cooperative coparenting and parallel parenting. The context, purpose, and necessity of both depending on the safety of the situation. I also am grateful for learning about the dueling affidavits. I do not want my child in this situation and will not be tempted to respond in kind if the other parent has our child sign one. I am on board with children not being forced to make adult decisions and it is empowering to know that I do not have to place a child in that situation.
This class was very informative. I learned different ways to handle difficult situations. I liked voice inflection and speed kept the sections moving.
It gave me an open mind to the new life style that everyone in the family is about to enter. It will be a huge change for everyone and the child is the main focus. It is about their future and the success of the kids. Lots of information, references to other places for more info. How much I learned about my children point of view and how adult actions affect
them. Taught me new ways to handle situations, the course provided scenarios that assist both families co-parenting.
Good layout and it was all relevant information.
Gave me insight on how I should handle some certain situations when it comes to coparenting. Lots of NEW information and ways to communicate differently . It provided examples and videos as well as it was read out load. The class explained the difference between where the court plays a role and when it is appropriate. The class also explained how easily people allow emotions from parents and others to affect the child.
Easy to understand, helped me see my child's POV. I found the class had a lot to offer any parent and would be a great learning tool for any household. I learned a lot about coparenting. This will make me a way better coparent than I was before. Class was well put together and organized.
That I was able to take it online, and start and stop when needed. I like that the course did not take either parents side, but stayed focused on the child. It was informational and gave more insight to coparenting
I liked that fact I good do it online. And it provided me with a lot of helpful information. I learned how to deal with my co parenting partner. The right words i need to use when speaking with my kids. I now know what signs to look for in my son so i can help him deal with different stages he goes through. i wish i had this course a lot sooner. If i didn't have to get a protective order from the judge i might of chose different options of working with the other parent. I see where i was wrong.. ive been able to start correcting it. i can see how this helps parents.
Learned a lot about how this would affect my kids. And how to handle certain triggers that I may have that the father of my kids knows . Id think this would help us out a lot.
It provided information i was not aware of, and i was able to learn and take notes at my own pace. Exceeded my expectations. Really learned a lot and hearing comments from actual Judges and real life scenarios. It made me look at things from a different perspective.
I personally like the sectional break down of the course and the ability to take the course as i have two children in our house and i don't have a lot of free time to just sit on a computer. A It was informative, and the online option made it convenient to go at my own pace. It expanded my knowledge in many categories and issues I'm dealing with.
I like that the class broke down the do's and don't's and different style of
coparenting, how it gave the tool to navigate coparenting and parenting conflicts.
I liked everything about this class. I have taken several other Co-parenting
courses and found this one to be the most beneficial of them all. I do not even
live in Texas, but still found the videos helpful
The fact that it teaches you to put your emotions aside and your child is first. My
child has always been first, but yes emotions have gotten in the way. Gave
some very good techniques.
That it was online, it kept me engaged, it didn't go off on a tangent. Very informative. Did a good job explaining different Scenarios between 2 homes and giving solutions.
I just want to put it to you all this way. This class actually made me tear up. I put
myself and my children's shoes with all the examples that were given and the
story about the child going back in forth in california. The scare that the judges
and attorneys put through you when they come out in the video. This class is an
eye opener and as much as I am full of pride. I feel like this class TRULY made
me change something in me. I even recommended this class to my family. I
appreciate you all for taking the time and truly caring about the future of world.
I liked the information and the ease with the online versions! The videos and I loved the massive amounts of good information given in the class. I liked that the course was very in depth and provided a different perspective. It focused more specifically on the children rather than the legal perspective of the adults.
I enjoyed it I need to stop saying " I'm going to miss yall ,yall are my whole world." Never thought that would hurt my kids . Thank you. I like that it was straight to the point and gave me great insight on raising a child between two homes.
Great information for those that may not have taken the time to research the
best methods for raising a child in a two-parent home.
It helped me a lot in seeing things on the kids side. It serves as a "North Star" for parents during litigation. The information was extensive, detailed and beneficial. Well structured and I liked how child-focused it was.
I liked that it was online and i could go at my own pace as well as review the
material anytime i chose.
It covered more detailed than what I knew when it came to co-parenting. It
opened my eyes to more ways of improving my co-parenting. Excellent bad & good examples of role-play videos; focusing on how adult attitudes & actions affect the kids and their feelings; testimony from multiple judges and attorneys is great; great 22 mistakes to avoid; pre- and post-tests were helpful.
I liked that there was an online option and it provided alternatives to litigation via
real life examples. Very informative.
Informative. I like that fact that I was able to see where my communication towards the other parent was going wrong. The judges perspectives and simple but full of facts; easy to follow.
It was organized and easy to understand. It was very helpful with understanding
co parents and how to always make it about the children. I hope my co parent
learned something from this, and will apply it to their life for the sake of our
I enjoyed the length of parts. any one can make 30 min of time. only a few
sections took 40 plus min. The pretest were helpful in letting me know what to
focus on when seeing the slides. things I did not know were easer to identify.
This class presented information in a neutral and explanatory way. I liked that it
was so factual.
The most beneficial part for me was the part about how to talk to your children. I
realize I made a couple of unintentional mistakes. I liked the class. I'm ok with
having to take it.
I learned different ways to communicate with my coparent and how to use age
appropriate words when talking to my children. It was easy to understand, I liked the voice-overs and the concise information. It gives me a recipe for success.
I really enjoyed the list of resources provided within the Bibliography. There is a
TON of information available on the internet to assist co-parents that it is
sometimes difficult to determine what information is helpful vs. what information
is harmful when trying to navigate through a divorce and successfully coparenting
with a child-focused approach. By providing the list of resources used
in the creation of this course, it allows others to be able to make a more
informed choice about the literature they may choose to purchase/read/watch. I
also think that the Alienation and Estrangement sections of the course are
EXTREMELY important for parents to learn about and educate themselves on in
order to be able to not only understand the Do's and Don'ts of co-parenting, but
also be able to identify potential signs of possible occurrences within their own
Online access during Covid 19 times as I have pre existing conditions that put me at risk being in groups in a confined area. Very informative with printable options to review or refer to later, links to other resources. Videos to watch are well put together.
This class opened my eyes up to a whole new world of communication skills. The class gave me the wisdom to becoming a better father for my kids and to become a better individual all together. Ways to deal with any situations more on a respectful level and caring for the feelings and thoughts of others before pointing fingers not knowing the full details of a situation. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be part of this class it was well worth it.
I come from 2 homes and this really did give me more knowledge about 2 home
situations and how to make it better. It was well ordered and documented.
I liked the videos, although outdated the message was clear and it was much
easier to see how parents look when doing things in front of the kids. It showed me an outside perspective on parenting. I can be more in tune with my children's emotions and feelings. How thorough and informative the class was.
The information on Alternative Dispute Resolution was priceless. I have never
divorced or divorced with children so this was loads of great information. I am
going about my divorce in a different direction away from the courts as much as
I can. Great course.
I like that it is available in a online, come and go format, how informative the lessons were particularly the videos from judges and reenactment videos.
I liked that I'm doing a lot well but see the problems i can fix on my side. How informative it was. It gave me insight on what I may be doing wrong and it also has calmed our
tempers and actually are friends now instead of divorcees.
Everything! I learned better ways to communicate with my coparent and most
importantly, I learned knew ways to be a better parent and coparent. It is well done.
It was to the point, emphasizing the need to put welfare of children first.
It was educational and informative, it was good at giving insight to how adult
behaviors can effect children. I got the most out of the judge interviews and I liked the dramatizations. It has a lot of good information to help parents.
I liked everything. It made me aware of what I was doing wrong and also gave me
confirmation of some of the things I was doing right. This class also gave me a
different view on how we should act as parents especially when our children are
around. I liked that it was easy to follow along with.
Great class! I highly recommend. I liked the online option, easy to use web site.
This class is an excellent tool to have because it gave perspective to the little
details that can go unnoticed by a parent. This class was very help in my
situation and moving forward, I am glad I was told about this class.
I learned a lot more about the impacts that effect children growing up in two
homes, and also that judges generally should be able to see when one parent is
purposefully using litigation as a means to their own wants and needs instead of
what's best for the child.
I liked that you could take the class at your own pace. New information on different ways to handle situations as well as different options rather than litigation.
The class was very knowledgeable in various areas. As a parent it is easy to have clouded vision in regards to a child view point. This class helped me to see how my child feels at times being in the middle and I will modify my actions/behavior to make sure that does not happen any more regardless of what my co-parent does. I am responsible for me and making sure our child grows up in a loving, nurturing home where they are loved by all.
Take the class ASAP in the divorce process. It will frame the entire pathway toward creating 2 homes but healthy, intact children. It will influence all the decisions during the divorce process.
This class is an excellent tool to have because it gave perspective to the little details that can go unnoticed by a parent. This class was very helpful in my situation and moving forward, I am glad I was told about this class.
Have this class in all court rooms and in the hands of every coparenting parents out there!
Suggest that stepparents, grand parents or any other adults that will be living with the children or will be influencing the children also take this course.
As a step parent I would have benefited greatly from taking this class when I got into a blended family.
I learned many important facts I did not know about how to communicate with my child and co-parent too.
I liked the format-Part 1 and part 2. I liked the embedded videos--the judges were insightful and sometimes hilarious. The explanations on what to do and WHY were meaningful to me. It changed my focus of what my responsibilities are for creating/assisting in a co-parenting situation.
Good insight and worldly examples, liked the videos from judges and attorneys and their statements on the topics they were discussing.
Real word issues and scenarios discussed, continued focus on the best interest of the children as the number one priority.
The best part of this class was getting to hear from actual real judges and hear their responses on how they handle certain situations.
It gave a lot of good advice on how to communicate with my co parent.
I like how the class covered various areas of co-parenting and ways to resolve conflict. I also like that the course provided insight on court room battles and continued litigation.
For attorneys I think you should mention a class to your clients in the very first meeting. Waiting until a judge orders this class could be months down the line and damages could already be done. I wish I would have taken this class when separating to know how to better handle the new change.
It has outstanding information and all two household parents should take it. Everyone will learn something.
I would say that it is beneficial that it covers many different areas regarding divorce situations. It has been helpful to know statistics and how to begin developing a different relationship with the co parent moving forward.
I believe this class would limit the amount of unnecessary time, energy and money spent on litigation. And quickly put the focus back where it should be, children.
I wish this class would have been around 21 years ago when I went through my first divorce. It would have helped both of us out raising our daughter.
That videos with judges and attorneys advocating for the parents to come to cooperative decisions was encouraging. It's easy to assume that all lawyers are litigious, and judges want to impose "their" decisions. This is obviously not true and was refreshing to hear these professions speak in this way.
This course gives parents a different view on how to coparent differently and how to mainly focus on children living between two homes. The information it provides and activities giving to one thru this program helps both parents and children going thru anything having to deal with children in the middle. Amazing program!
They should recommend all parents take this class.
It's great. I'd highly suggest this class to anyone going into a 2 home system.
I think this has improved my parenting skills a lot overall, and I am glad that I have access and a new set of co-parenting skills to work with.
This class helped me re-think on how to handle situations that may occur between my co-parent and I.
It's a good place to start for parents with a child growing up between two homes. It should be recommended to divorcing parents.
They should from henceforth order the litigants to take the class first before litigating rather than later in the course of litigating events and save the families untold cost, damage to families and the children in the middle who did not create the problem but suffer most.
It was very informative and points out certain behaviors that I wasn't intentionally doing and can improve and change that behavior.
It provides pertinent information and stresses importance of putting the best interest of the child first.
It is well worth the time to take the course for parents that are getting divorced or have been divorced for awhile. The videos with the judges and attorneys are very good at informing you about things you thought you knew but were wrong about and, it also explains things better and you understand better than you do standing in a court room.
I learned a lot taking this class, and saw different situations through the class. I wasn't too thrilled when they said I had to take the class and procrastinated until my last day but I am very glad they ordered us both to take it!
The law in Texas needs to be changed so that every parent who files for divorce has to complete this class before moving forward with their case.
Very beneficial. I wish i had taken this class before filing for divorce. There may have been a different outcome had I done so.
Everyone should take this and very early.
Should be suggested much sooner in the process.
It helped me in viewing my kids dad different.
I do not feel that there is any way to improve this class. I feel that it gave me information that puts my outlook on my particular situation more in perspective.
Recommend it before filing for divorce.
How important it is to focus only on the child's best interest and be the best parent and put the child's needs first, teaching day to day communications, how to control our behaviors for better and how to keep the negative factors out of our child life.
The unbiased approach to parenting. Total emphasis on the children.
It was very informative. Helping me be more aware of my actions as they relate to being a better co-parent.
Very informational and helpful. Highly recommend it for members in co parenting.
All the descriptive and well detailed information with various links that provides help to parents with children between two homes. Outstanding course!!!
The ability to return to the site. I also appreciated the ability to pretest to understand what I did and didn't know through intuition.
It was very informative and showed me things I was doing wrong that in my mind seemed like the correct thing to do.
I enjoyed the videos that came along with the class to hear a judge or attorney's perspective on things, and what really happens.
It was very easy to understand. It was objective and fact based.
I have 4 kids, so it is important that I was able to take this class online at my own pace.
Could work on it in my own time. With my work and travel schedule trying to attend in a classroom session would have been difficult. Going back to see what questions I missed really helped me learn too.
I liked it being on-line for my time frame.
Showed me what my parents should have done differently when they got divorced.
Very detailed with practical life scenarios and remedies or solutions to bad family situations.
The class was very informative. I learned a lot and enjoyed taking it.
I liked the course it was very helpful.
Great course. Made me think differently in a few cases.
I like the narration because I would dread having to read the information.
The different point of views it provided me regarding the other parent as well as what my child may be going through.
Being able to take it at home.
The many Judges spoke the truth to matters. I wonder why they don't order the litigants to take this course first rather than later, when a lot of damage has been done.
For stepparents, it's a great online class to understand good parenting for the best interest of your children. Anyone would benefit from taking this course.
I thought the class was helpful with making sure it was about the parents in one section and then making it abo
