I've just received an email from Kent Family Mediation, detailing a new service that they are launching for parents who live apart. From June they will be offering parenting workshops to 'inform and support' all such parents:
"The 3 hour workshops will provide an opportunity to discuss, amongst other things, what children are feeling and saying about separation and divorce in their lives; current research on the impact of separation and divorce on children; how to communicate effectively. The workshops will be a safe place to share and learn, focusing on ‘children first’."
Parents will be able to attend the workshops either jointly or separately. The first two workshops will take place in Sittingbourne, but others are planned for venues across Kent later in the year.
