Straight Forward and Easy to follow

This course didn't disappoint in any way. It does feel a bit inconvenient being court ordered to take a course, but ultimately, it was helpful and for the best.

Other perspective and taking responsability

Even that we are not divorce had to do this course and I like how it teach to be responsible, be present because you care, it is not about who gets more BUT what is the BEST outcome for the child benefit.

Good points and go at your own pace

This course presented food for thought, self-reflection, and served as an avenue to put my thoughts to words. I was able to focus after work hours which was also helpful.

Very interesting and valuable course.

Attending a mandated course you do not want to be at is never fun, however, this course changed my mind. It had very valuable information and incorporates lots of interesting videos, Ted talks and articles. Much better then sitting through a long boring PowerPoint. Very good course with some very helpful information. Thank you.
