For more than 30 years, The Center for Divorce Education has been dedicated to helping parents and children deal with the difficult process of divorce and separation. The most widely used of our online court-approved parenting classes is Children in Between Online (CIBO). Some of the largest counties in the United States have chosen CIBO to meet the requirements of their court-ordered parenting classes.
Based on the success of CIBO, we've recently released a new course, Children in Between: For Kids, which is specially designed to meet the needs of children aged 7-14 and their parents. For parents experiencing divorce proceedings that are particularly challenging, we also offer our High Conflict Solutions parenting class.
Based on our extensive research, we have developed highly effective methods for reducing the stress of divorce and separation for all parties. Experts have recognized our interactive, skills-based approach through court-approved parenting classes as being among the top programs offered today.
If you're a parent trying to navigate the difficulties of divorce, it's time to enroll in our divorce parenting class. There is a way forward, and The Center for Divorce Education is here to help you find it with parenting classes for court-ordered education. Begin here today.
