Consider The Children

This 4-hour parenting class provides information and support for parents or parental custodians who are undergoing a divorce, paternity action, or parenting plan modification.  Classes are provided twice monthly in Thurston, Lewis, and Pierce Counties and once per month in Mason County.  At the end of each class participants will be provided with a certificate which they can then file with the court to document that they have taken the class.
