When a couple is going through a divorce, it can be an extremely difficult for their children to cope with all the changes. Whether by choice or court order, both spouses may enroll in a parenting class. A parenting class, also referred to as a family stabilization course, helps parents learn more about the effects of a divorce on their children, as well as how to properly handle what is to come. As a Board-Certified attorney, I can help you through the process and explain the benefits of taking a parenting class. Not only can it benefit your children, but it can also help you better prepare for and understand the divorce process.
The Benefits of Taking a Parenting Class
There are two ways that parents can enroll in parenting classes in Florida; either by a court-order or voluntarily. If it the class is court-ordered, the judge will either order that the parents take the class together or separately, depending upon their history. The course provides exceptional information for both parents, including:
- What to expect when getting divorced;
- How to properly handle conflicts that arise;
- Creating a healthy co-parenting relationship;
- What type of emotional and behavioral reactions to expect from your children;
- Family stabilization strategies;
- Addressing abuse, violence and neglect;
- Financial responsibilities that come with parenting; and
- Other valuable information and resources each parent can utilize.
Parenting classes are very useful to both parents involved. The courses provide a great depth of information and teach parents how to ensure that the physical and emotional well-being of their children is protected. If the parents are not committed to learning and growing, the course will not be beneficial to them or their children.
