Parenting Education Program

Parenting education programs (PEP) are classes designed to educate adults about the many issues children face when their family situation changes. PEP trains participants on how to help children adjust in a healthy way to divorce or living apart from a parent. PEP includes information about children’s developmental stages, adjusting to parent separation, cooperative parenting, conflict management and dispute resolution techniques, guidelines for visitation and parent access and stress reduction for children.

You will need to submit the form below for the class. Please print one copy for your records.
