From the merchant: Educational workshops for parents and kids going through family reorganization, separation or changes in custody.
About A Chat with Co-Parenting and Divorce - Kids at the Center
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We provide support for the entire family through separate but simultaneous workshops for parents, kids 5-8 years old, kids 9-12 years old, and teens 13-16 years old. Parents and kids learn communication skills, coping mechanisms, how to create healthy boundaries, and manage challenging emotions.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
As a counselor I have been looking for a comprehensive resource for families looking to minimize the potential negative impact of family reorganization on their children, by including the children. This program provides exactly the type of support that is needed and missing in Pierce County.
What do you love most about your job?
Working with families and kids to help them deal with a challenging time in their lives is very rewarding! I have worked with thousands of families through the school system of the past 10 years, and divorce is an issue that is important to work on directly to create the best outcomes for kids.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
Although this program is new, I have had many divorce groups for kids over the years. The process of family reorganization can be isolating. Kids often say how nice it is to see that they are not alone and that others are feeling and experiencing the same things with their family.
