Understanding Dads (for Moms)
In a strained co-parent relationship, a mother’s gatekeeping behavior can often prevent or reduce fathers’ access to their kids, when the father’s involvement would actually be beneficial to the children. The Understanding Dad program helps mothers better understand the importance of involving dad in their children’s lives, and how to better communicate with the father(s).
