RESOURCES FOR CHILDREN

Recommended Reading List for Different Ages

Understanding all of the emotional aspects that come from divorce is hard for adults, so imagine how difficult it may be for children? Understanding why Mommy and Daddy aren't living together anymore, why everyone is fighting, getting step-parents, step-siblings, etc. These books can help you have the challenging conversations with children, from toddler to teenager, and help ease your family's transition. 

Courses for Effective Co-Parenting

Our local counties offer a variety of parenting and co-parenting classes to help you, as a parent, help your children navigate separation, divorce or a custody dispute. Some counties require these courses as part of the child custody process, and can help you in your custody case. Below are several local courses that Spidell Family Law would recommend.

  • Fathers are Parents Too! (Parenting Path- Forsyth County)

  • Parent/Teen Solutions (Parenting Path- Forsyth County)

  • Two Families Now (Guilford County)
