Hi! I’m Dr. Becca Ballinger

Child Psychologist & Modern Parenting Expert

Why Should You Choose My Co-Parenting Class?

You know you need to complete a court-mandated parenting class (sometimes called a Parent Education and Stabilization Class), but which one is the best one for you?

As a child psychologist and Modern Parenting Expert who has worked with countless co-parents over the years at my Southern California private practice, Modern Parenting Solutions, I know the top questions that worry today’s parents:

  • How do I handle a difficult ex whose only goal is to make my life miserable?
  • What exactly is child support and how does it work?
  • How do I instill values and discipline in my child if their other parent doesn’t care about household rules?
  • How do I handle the intense ups and downs of emotions involved with co-parenting? I’m tired of this emotional roller coaster!
  • How do I move on from my breakup and feel good about me as an individual?

As a co-parent myself (I’ve been successfully co-parenting with my ex for the past 14 years), I know that there is so much complexity involved with co-parenting – and my goal for you is to make your co-parenting journey so much easier by addressing the topics that matter to you most in my co-parenting class!

Topics Covered in This Course:

Child Support 101

Does the concept of child support have you confused? We go over all the ins and outs of child support – what it usually covers, what it doesn’t, AND we provide a worksheet to organize your expenses related to your child.

Kids & Discipline

Learn how to bring order and peace into your home using our discipline plan strategies. We will teach you how to create a parenting plan that allows you to raise your child using your unique passions, values, and beliefs.

Legal Terms You Should Know

Don’t be confused by common legal terms involved in custody and co-parenting. Gain a competent understanding of many of the terms used in divorce, custody, and co-parenting.

More topics are covered in the 6 Hour Class, the 8 Hour Class, and the 10 Hour class.
