Families in Transition
More than 1 million children are affected each year by their parents’ separation or divorce. Parents in conflict can intensify the already devastating effect of a separation on their children. When parents are educated about the legal and psychological process they are going through, the process is easier for both the parents and the children.
Families In Transition (FIT), using the Assisting Children in Transition Curriculum, helps parents learn about:
- Creating and maintaining supportive parent-child relationships
- Providing a stable, supportive home environment
- Ways to reduce the stress of family changes
- How to protect their children from the negative effects of ongoing conflict
- The legal process and terminology
- Various options for resolving disagreements
- The importance of paying child support on time and in full and obeying court orders
- Domestic violence and the continuum between cooperative and parallel parenting
All facilitators have been trained as per the Parent Education and Awareness Program guidelines. Child and Family Resources is a certified parent education provider and offers FIT in Ontario, Seneca and Yates Counties.
The fee for the class is $100.00 per participant with a sliding fee scale to help ensure all parents have the opportunity to attend the class.
FIT reminds parents that they have a great deal of control over how their children come through the separation or divorce process and whether they develop into healthy, well-adjusted individuals.
