About Consider the Children (Considere a los Ninos)

The divorce/separation of one’s parents is a major event in the life of a child. Consider the Children is a 4-hour parenting class focused on strategies to support children who live separately from one or both parents.

Topics include:

  • Grief and loss
  • Stress indicators in children
  • The long-term impact of parental conflict on children
  • Communication skills for parents who live separately
  • Strategies to help children in transition through visits

Consider the Children Seminar Workshops meet Lewis, Mason Pierce, and Thurston County Superior Court requirements mandating attendance at a four (4)-hour class designated to address the impact family restructuring has on children. All instructors have been approved by the courts. Upon completion of this class you will be given a Certificate of Attendance to give to your attorney, or file with the court clerk.
