Agreed Commitments To Your Children — A Unique, Free, Eye-Opening Opportunity!
As Colorado family mediators, we encourage you to complete an absolutely unique, free and private online tour of key commitments you can make to protect your children, in this time of potential conflict and stress.
A secular, nonprofit family charity (created by an attorney-mediator husband and counselor-mediator wife) funds the following special, enlightening websites. These allow you and your spouse or co-parent to separately and confidentially complete an engaging questionnaire of what each of you would choose for your children — in the aftermath of your separation or divorce.
The foundation securely and confidentially considers your answers and choices along with those of your spouse or co-parent, to create and forward by email to each of you: a personalized list of agreed commitments to your children (the ones you both agree will be important to your children and will guide your future parenting).
Four powerful Exercises accompany the Commitments and are also highly recommended!
For divorcing or divorced parents: www.UpToParents.org
If you choose to complete this helpful work, please bring your completed Exercises and Commitments with you to mediation.
