In some cases, many aspects of cooperative coparenting either will not
work or promote increased risk for either coparent and/or the children.
Areas which include increased risk are domestic violence circumstances,
when one or both parents experience mental illness, when one or both parents
are chemically dependent, or when parents continue to make adult focused
rather than child focused decisions. Our Parallel Parenting Class, basically
Part 3 of the Children in the Middle class, is designed to teach parents
how both homes can work separately in the best interests of the children
if both parents are not able to work directly together.
Unless waived by court order, participants must complete both parts of the live Children in the Middle class or the online Making Two Homes Work class within the past 24 months prior to participation in the Parallel Parenting class.
