Dr. Novick is a probation and court approved parenting class provider as well as anger management provider. The Advanced 10 Hour Parenting Class was designed as a longer version of our traditional parenting class and is a minimum of 10 hours to complete. It includes more in depth information, expansive content, detailed quizzes and course instruction and is more comprehensive than our standard program. This course is ideally taken by those who want the most detailed parenting class available through our organization either for personal growth or for those that have a court or legal requirement that requires a longer course. Few of us took any parenting classes before or during our children’s early years. Many of us depended on what we remembered from being parented ourselves, and/or depend on our parents for occasional advice. There is nothing wrong with that. You might consider getting a fresh and more modern approach to parenting in a much more complex world.

If there is a chance your Ex will try to manipulate you or the kids with the visitation schedule, put an on-line Parenting Plan in place. Nothing stops the game-playing like a schedule in black and white. Simply tell your Ex that in order for the schedule to be changed, it must be discussed and agreed to; otherwise it is not changing.

Among the topics covered in the course include:

  1. Legal aspects of deciding child-related issues between parents
  2. Emotional aspects of separation and divorce on adults
  3. Emotional aspects of separation and divorce on children
  4. Family relationships and family dynamics
  5. Financial responsibilities to a child or children
  6. Issues regarding spousal or child abuse and neglect
  7. Skill-based relationship education that may be generalized to parenting, workplace, school, neighborhood, and civic relationships.
