Minnesota Parenting Consultant

Minnesota Parenting ConsultantIf you have gone through a divorce, you likely know the stress and strain the experience can put on you.  It may be incomparable to anything else you have ever experienced, or will ever experience.  If you have children, the chances are good that your stress and worry have been even greater.  For some people, maybe even most people, divorce is the only option.  It is a sad and difficult experience for the vast majority of people who go through it, but the stress and strain of divorce can also reveal a resiliency you did not know you had.  Mediation is becoming a preferred option for navigating the divorce process in the Minnesota area and Johnson Mediation is a leader offers comprehensive and compassionate program for divorcing couples through a variety of divorce mediation services.

Putting Children First In A Divorce With a Minnesota Parenting Consultant

Regardless of the reasons for the divorce, if children are involved, few would argue that we owe it to our children to work diligently to find the best possible solution for the sake of the children.  But couples who are left to navigate their post-divorce relationship with their exes are more inclined to be ill-equipped to find harmony than those who have the advantage of working with a Parenting Consultant.

Though the divorcing couple has the ability to agree upon the choice of a parenting consultant, once a decision is made as to who will serve in that role, the parenting consultant is empowered by a judge to make decisions that are in the best interests of all involved.  Financial decisions can be made by a parenting consultant, for example, when it comes to who pays how much for court costs.  Parenting consultants are also not confidential counselors.  They are empowered by the judge who has assigned them to confer with attorneys and other court representatives who play a role in the welfare of the children affected by the divorce.

Parenting consultants can be helpful in many ways, such as:

  • Helping to create parenting time schedules (visitation).
  • Creating transportation schedules that work for the children and both parents.
  • Facilitating communication between the parents and children.
  • Providing guidance related to discipline, behavioral issues, and parenting style difference.
  • How parents participate in and pay for their children’s participation in after-school activities, sports, lessons, etc.
  • Helping to decide the best possible options regarding education.
  • Helping to determine best responses to medical and/or mental health care for the children.
