After the 8-week program is completed, the program facilitator will conduct up to two follow up phone calls and/or home visits with the family to ensure that they are able to continue to sustain the positive skills learned throughout the program and offer any guidance or referrals that might still be needed to ensure prolonged success.
Our next session of Cooperative Parenting will be held at Family Pride of Northeast OH,
695 South St. #6 Chardon.
Thursdays from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. on
Winner of a Parent's Guide to Children's Media (Parenting Division) Award!
Family Pride’s Cooperative Parenting Program,
is an 8-week program to help any couples going through a separation or divorce master positive co-parenting skills. During the course, participants will learn about the impact their conflict has on their children, common issues that children face during a separation/divorce, and practical skills they will need to resolve conflict in a healthy manner. The program utilizes instruction, videos, activities, role playing and peer discussions to positively impact both parents as they work together towards a common goal – raising healthy and happy children. It includes skill-building exercises on communication, conflict management, positive discipline, and managing anger and feelings of loss in a healthy way. Each component helps parents to understand that there are many common co-parenting challenges that offer healthy solutions and that they are not alone with the often frustrating family transition.
Sessions 1 through 8
Child-Focused or Out of Focus: Commitment to Caring
Plan for Peace or Tug of War: Allowing My Child to Love Both Parents

Cooperation or Conflict: Co-Parenting Is Forever
Here's what the judges had to say:
"Divorce itself is tough on children, but constant, often bitter conflict that persists after the divorce makes it even tougher. Divorced or divorcing parents will find the workbook and video vignettes openly address likely areas of conflict and offer possible solutions that keep parents centered on what they can both agree on: the happiness and well-being of their child. Open communication and genuine respect, even amidst understandable differences, ground the conflict-resolving strategies."
