Question: What were the most helpful aspects of the course?

How to co-parent. Stay focused on the child and not the past.
The video was very informative. Focusing on communication is very helpful as well.
Communication, putting the child first no matter what, always think about
the child, put yourself in their shoes.
All of it. Very helpful. I love the video also.
Learning how to calm yourself and reflect on what the bigger picture is for your child.
Techniques for communicating.
Just sitting there and hearing the others talk.
Knowing how to talk to each other.
Communication–ways to effectively get your point across without offending.
Different tools for better communication.
The dialogue with the presenter.
Talking with others in class, sharing experiences and resolutions.
Being able to listen to others and how they handled their situations.
Video was effective as it had relatable content.  The course materials included good advice for dealing with conflict.
Doing what’s best for your child.
She (the instructor) got to know each one of us and was very helpful with getting us to open up and ask questions and she answered them greatly.
Discussing different ways to address behavior issues in both homes.
Communication–always model good behavior.
