Keeping it About The Kids

Keeping It About the Kids is a co-parenting education class for paternity identified parents with minor children. Both co-parenting classes are collaboratively taught by Fond du Lac  County Family Court and Division of Extension Fond du Lac County. Both programs help parents learn to keep children from witnessing parental conflict, avoid putting children in the middle, utilize emotionally neutral communication and support the role of the other parent in the child’s life.  Parents also learn the benefits of having a parenting plan in place.


Home Alone Program

The Home Alone program will help parents and children determine if they are ready to stay home alone. Parents and children should watch the Home Alone videos together and use the short activities after each video to discuss plans to stay safe. Available at https://fyi.extension.wisc.edu/homealone/ and in Spanish at https://fyi.extension.wisc.edu/homealone-espanol/.
