Why do I have to take a parenting education class?
Updated: Oct 22, 2018
All parents divorcing in Massachusetts with children under 18 years old must complete a parenting education program. See Standing Order 2-16 (Parent Education Program Attendance). The 2-part course addresses the effects of divorce on children and understanding their emotional needs. It will also address some of the challenges parents will encounter when raising children under two households.
