FAQ - Parent Education Classes

I am not interested in communicating with the other parent and therefore do not need to build communication skills.  Why must I still take the class?

Not communicating with the other parent may make you feel better.  However, it can create an uncomfortable situation for your child.  Children are aware of unspoken tension.  When there is absolutely no communication between parents, children become messengers delivering messages from one parent to another.  Even if you do not like the other parent, the class teaches you ways to develop a business relationship with that parent - the business of raising healthy children.  Putting your child in the middle of parental conflict adds more stress to their lives.
