This course was created for parents wanting to divorce. It has been approved by D.C.F. per statute 61.21. In order to obtain a divorce in the state of Florida, both parents are required to complete this course. No divorce will be finalized until the courts receive a certificate of completion, which will be granted upon successful completion of the 4 hour course. We guarantee you will pass our course with ease, or your money will be refunded.
"AND SO ROCK BOTTOM
BECAME THE SOLID
ON WHICH I
REBUILT MY LIFE" J.K. ROWLING
Preferred Parenting of Naples firmly believes that children need a solid foundation to grow socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically. We provide parents with the necessary tools to enable them to be the best possible parent.
This class is for expectant parents or those who plan to become parents. This is a hour class which covers everything from prenatal care, topics which need to be discussed with partner, writing a birth plan and more. Other topics include, safe sleep, safety, and even pros and cons to circumcision.
This class is the second part of "Preparing for Baby" and it too is for expectant parents. The class begins a brief review of the "Preparing for Baby" class, and goes on to discuss "what to expect when expecting." We will discuss practical issues, such as how to calm a newborn, reflexes, how to hold, burp, bathe a newborn and developmental milestones for the first three months of life. This class is taught in two sessions and is offered privately or in a small group. Everyone gets to practice skills on a lifelike doll.
Call for more information.
Even as a toddler, some children display undesired behavior. Perhaps it occurs mostly at home. We may have the answer to your concern. With written consent, we will place a small camera (like a nanny cam) in the area where this behavior occurs most often. We record everything for about 2-4 hours. We take note of any triggers or antecedent behaviors. From there we develop a behavior plan with short and long term goals, with the plan of extinguishing the inappropriate behavior. We instruct parents on the best way to implement the goals and to document his/her progress. We will review the situation every quarter until you are satisfied. We also include a free ASQ-SE2 with this service and SEAM family assessment. Parents (or caregiver) will receive personal instructions on implementation.
These screenings are highly recommended by The American Academy of Pediatrics & many professional early childhood organizations. The assessments will be administered by trained parents & scored by Preferred Parenting. We will then write a plan based on the results. These tools are used with a behavior consultation.
The PARENT EDUCATION AND FAMILY STABILIZATION course was developed for parents wanting to divorce. Your divorce cannot be granted unless this course has been completed and we submit your state approved certificate. It is required that the course be a minimum of four hours and that a final exam be given. We guarantee you will pass the exam and will be granted your certificate at the end of the course.
