The Pandemic of Divorce
U.S. Census shows that separated parents raise close to 33% of American children. This amounts to millions of children who respond differently to separation, all based on age, developmental stage, and most importantly, how the parents manage the break.
"COVID-19 has brought unique elements to family separations, which has only heightened the need to build stronger child-rearing partnerships,"
Co-parenting is the New Parenting
Families need information and support with co-parenting solutions to make healthy decisions. ICC is a co-parenting program led by Dr. Street that puts children first. It exists to help co-parents reduce stress by focusing on their individual ability to regulate emotions, communicate clearly, and practice conflict resolution techniques.
While these are critical skills to have in place, it's also imperative to be educated about effective parenting plans, mediation tactics, and the basics of Family Court.
"Co-parenting has unique challenges. Learning a specific set of skills can significantly improve your co-parenting experience,"
Dr. Street's modern approach to co-parenting goes a long way in lowering temperatures and reducing tensions. By focusing on aspects of the relationship they can control, each parent assumes responsibility for what is ultimately best for the child.
"Co-parenting is the new parenting. It is difficult, but it does not have to feel impossible. Knowing you're not alone in this struggle is the first step." says Dr. Street.
