8 Hour Co-Parenting Class:
Foundational Skills + Conflict Management Skills + Relationship Building/Repair Skills Class
“Divorce really messed up my relationship with my kids; but after taking this class, I now have a plan to rebuild those important relationships. I feel like I can actually do this now!”
~ Modern Co-Parenting Course Graduate, 2021
What Is The Learning Goal of The Relationship Building/Repair Package?
Divorce/separation often leads to the breakdown of the parent-child relationship – and most of the time it’s not even your fault!
In addition to learning EVERYTHING from the Foundational Course AND the Conflict Management Course, this course will give you the skills and strategies to:
- Address Parent Alienation Syndrome (PAS) if your ex has attempted to turn your child against you
- Improve your relationship with your child – even if you have limited time with them
- Improve your relationship with other key people in your life such as your ex, other family members – and even yourself (because YOU matter too!)

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!
