In this sample video from the video program “Cooperative Parenting and Divorce,” a little girl manipulates her parents into a fight. The follow-up scene depicts her mother demonstrating peaceful co-parenting skills by refusing to take the bait.
This co-parenting video program is available from Active Parenting Publishers (www.activeparenting.com/CPD_main).
This video-based course gives divorcing or separating parents the power to make positive changes that shield their children from parental conflict and guides them into establishing a long-term relationship with the child’s other parents. Course leaders will play videos like this one to launch a discussion of positive ways to deal with common problems. The step-by-step Leader’s Guide provides details of when to play the videos, how to lead discussion, and how to run the activities that keep the class lively as well as informative.
