Course with a Purpose

The course allowed me to truly reflect on the way forward in co-parenting. It touched on sensitive topics extremely important to us understanding the dynamics of ensuring we place our children in the most productive developmental environments (our homes). Great course!

Very informative

Touched on “touchy” subjects that are not easy to discuss, but makes you feel like you’re not alone going through the process.

A Pleasant Surprise!

I have taken the parenting course before but not from here. This was informative and I loved the "Marriage Hack" video. It really gave me a new perspective.

Single Fathers and Minimum Effort

I feel as though my situation is unique considering my wife attempted suicide and left us both, and I had to file to protect my daughter. Some content was disheartening, particularly the TedX video saying that single fathers can do the lowest minimum effort and be praised. I found this portion of the video slightly offensive as I put 110% effort into being the best father I can be for my daughter.

Informative

I came into this class not wanting to do it, but I'm glad I took it because I feel I have a different outlook on these types of situations.
