WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT "CHILDREN IN BETWEEN ONLINE"
"I like that you can listen to the videos and responses. It was easier to absorb the science behind dealing with confrontation."
Father- Cook County, IL
"All of the communication skills are useful; for me the most important skills were self talk and reframing. Seeing the potential effects of conflict on children was important to me. I want my kids to be happy and to have a positive relationship with both of us."
Mother- Milwaukee, WI
"The whole class was helpful. It made several good points and gave an alternative way to think. I hope to use these tools in the future to continue to not only become a better co-parent but to be a better person in general. Thank you for this opportunity."
