Real quotes from real parents: What were the most helpful and useful things you learned in Children in Between Online?
"I felt like I learned a lot of valuable information, particularly in remembering to Stop-Look-Listen, ways to be mindful, and to remember that the way my children respond to our divorce is directly related to how much conflict they are exposed to."
"In-depth information and a complete guide to working agreements out with former partners."
"The videos were definitely helpful, because they're pretty relatable."
"Statistics about children of divorce. I think it helps me realize how important it is to work on communication and conflict management."
"Learning more regarding brain functionality, and how it plays a major role in reactions to situations. Self-Talk, learning of ways/new techniques to deal with my child's emotions given the change in their father and I's relationship, and Active Listening."
"Using "I" messages, active listening, stop-look and listen, learned how the amygdala operates and what it is."
"How to manage my anger and not jump to conclusions. How to communicate effectively with my children's' mother."
"This was a surprisingly good and useful course. Learning about the physiological aspects of our brain functioning with stress and conflict was very interesting and enlightening. I found the skills related to "I" messages to be useful and the focus on mindfulness techniques."

Attorneys and judges interested in children would love to have this to show to divorcing parents. Parents in conflict will attend to this much better than merely being told what they need to be doing for their children.

What I like about this video is that... it provides practical skill-building that gives both parents and children the ability to handle those difficult, but recurring, moments in divorce... This video is a good one to use both in school divorce programs and in the emerging court-mandated parent education programs around the country.
John A. Moran, Ph.D.
Children In Between sets the gold standard for online parent education programs. Attention grabbing action scenarios, video clips, animations and narration provide multiple approaches to developing skills for the most stressful coparenting problems.
