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.

Consider the Children On-Demand

If you are filing in Thurston, Mason, Lewis, or Pierce Counties in Washington State, STOP; you will need to sign up for our Live Virtual Consider the Children course. We will update the website if this changes.

Our Live virtual course is the better option because it is more interactive, is in real time, and we find that those who take the Live virtual course can ask questions and participate more. However, if you are unable to make those days and times work for you, we are now offering our Consider the Children On-Demand course that you can take any time of day or night. The course is 3.5 hours, so please set aside enough time to finish.

Once you complete the course and answer the questions at the end, our staff will be notified, and you will receive your certificate via email within 24 business hours.
