Who Is The Co-Parenting Course For?

This course is for divorced, separated and single parents. You can take control for yourself and the kids, even if the other parent is not willing. This course is also for grandparents, foster parents and any adult caring for children of divorce.

In the United States and abroad, courts mandate divorcing parents take a class. The court ordered classes give parents a foundation, but in the months and years after the court classes have ended, parents still struggle to find peace. Conflicting opinions about what’s best for the kids, and so many other arguments, stop effective co-parenting from becoming a reality for many families.

“I have worked with ShaRon for over a year. She has been an invaluable support and resource.
She listens in non-judgmental ways and has never-ending knowledge on how to work through co-parenting conflicts.
She has helped me find peace, clarity, and a loving approach to challenges in times when the children and I needed it most.”

Three Things Co-Parents Often Forget To Do

1. Take care of yourself first.

Self-care is not selfish, especially with all the twists and turns you and your children will go through as you adjust to the new family structure. The goal is to become a solid foundation for yourself first, so you can stand on it for them.

2. Be a cooperative co-parent.

Learning to work together with your former spouse may be difficult, but it is important. One way to achieve a cooperative working relationship is to see the other parent through your child’s eyes.

3. Solve the problems.

Anger, hurt feelings and competition can keep you stuck.  You may become unable or unwilling to find solutions that move everyone forward. When you are parenting after divorce, focus on modeling behavior that teaches your child how to handle life’s ups and downs – to be resilient. When parents change their behavior and model resilience by looking for solutions instead of reliving or staying stuck in the problems, the result is a more peaceful home life for their children and themselves .
