Virtual Parenting Workshop

(satisfies SMILE program requirement)

May 26, 2020 from 1pm-2pm

Registration required


Each year over one million marriages end in divorce in the United States. When divorce happens, people feel alone and wonder how anyone else lived through it. S.M.I.L.E (Start Making It Livable for Everyone) is a program for separating / divorced parents with minor children.

The developers of this program have worked with hundreds of divorcing families having difficulties with time-sharing, parenting roles, and other divorce-related issues. This program provides an overview of the FOC office and will provide some information about the effects of divorce and what parents can do to make the divorce situation livable.
