Clearview Divorce News
While divorce is hard on the two individuals who are splitting up, its impact on children can be just as great if not greater.
Many couples have done their best to put the focus of their divorce and their post-divorce lives on their children, but this is easier said than done. This is part of the reason why a California city is introducing co-parenting classes.
According to the Petaluma Patch, the Petaluma People Services will begin offering a Cooperative Parenting and Divorce group, which intends to help parents bring the focus off one another and onto the children.
Susan Boyan and Ann Marie Termini, family therapists and creators of the program, began the group to help children. They hope the program will help kids by getting to the root of many of their problems: parental conflict.
Another way parents can ensure that the dissolution of their marriage has as little an impact on their children as possible is pursuing divorce mediation. Divorce mediators gives couples the chance to avoid the crowded and slow court system, bringing their marriage to an end quickly. This will allow children to get settled in their new living situations faster, which will give them increased stability.
