Parenting After Divorce/SeparationThere is no way around it. A divorce can be extremely stressful and financially draining. With over 50% of marriages ending up in divorce, AMS Mediation noticed a need for education classes around a divorce. Especially when children are involved, learning about the legal process and many other factors surrounding a divorce can help make the divorce process smoother and more family focused. If you live in Minnesota and you are looking for help with parenting after a divorce, AMS Mediation is the partner for you!

Get To Know Amber Serwat

As a divorced parent of two children, Amy Serwat, founder of AMS Mediation has been through the tough times of a divorce first hand. Her experience with using a mediator and her belief that children need both parents involved in their life, even after a divorce, is what drew her to start offering mediation and parenting services.

Minnesota Parenting Class

Our specially designed parenting class known as “A Toolkit for Successful Separate Parenting” has helped couples with children that are going through a divorce. Providing helpful parenting guidance and tips on co-parenting are just a few of the benefits of joining our parenting education classes. Life after a divorce can be tough to adjust to for not just the parents but also your children. Through this class, you will be taught what to expect and made aware of the potential issues that may come about in the future. Being able to create a healthy environment and mature relationship after a divorce can go along way with your kids success in the future. The last thing you want is for your divorce to take a toll on your kids and affect them both emotionally and socially. Other topics that our parenting education classes go over include:

  • How conflict affects your children.
  • Focus on age groups and how their needs and viewpoints may be different.
  • Communication with your children about a divorce.
  • Change and regaining your children’s trust.
  • Healthy environments.
  • Properly managing anger and conflict.
  • Communication as a family after a divorce.
  • What to avoid.
