Parenting Education Classes

Parenting Education Classes

The Parenting Education Classes provide information and practical tips to help parents with the impact of divorce or separation on children, and provides information about mediation, parenting plans, and the legal process.

The Parenting Education Providers are those approved by the Supreme Court Office of Dispute Resolution, on behalf of the State Court Administrator, to educate parties about the impact of separation and divorce on children.

These courses include information on the developmental stages of children, adjustment of a child to a parental separation, the litigation and court process, alternative dispute resolution, conflict management, stress reduction, guidelines for parenting time, provisions for safety and transition plans, and information about parents and children affected by abuse and unresolved parental conflict.

BASIC PARENTING EDUCATION: Each parent is required, under the Parenting Act, to attend a basic level parenting education course. Basic Level courses are offered for parents to either attend in-person (identified below as “Basic”) or take through an online computer-based course.(identified below as “Online”).

SECOND (2ND) LEVEL PARENTING EDUCATION: A court may also order some parents to attend a second (2nd) level parenting education course (identified below as “2nd”). Second level parenting education courses are only provided by Nebraska educators, and in-person attendance is required. ODR has not approved online 2nd level courses.

Please note that each of the providers/agencies charge their own fees and fees may vary. Some of the providers offer both a first (basic) level parenting course and a second-level parenting course and it is the parent’s responsibility to determine which class is needed/court ordered.

If you have questions regarding any of these classes, contact the individual Agency/Organization through their website or email link.
