A Strategy for Supervised Visitation

How to Tell the Kids You are Getting a Divorce
Different states have different strategies for helping parents deal with custodial issues. When parents are required to have supervised visitation, the chances for negative feelings to come out are very high. All parents want the right to visit their children without feeling like they’re going to make a wrong move.

In Maine, a new program has been announced to help parents have supervised visits in a neutral place for a lower rate. The program has been advanced by the Saint Andre Home’s Center for Parenting and Play. Parents will be able to have one hour of supervised visitation for as little as $25, as well as receive counseling debriefs before and after the visit. Parents will also have access to other parenting resources at the site.

When parents cannot agree on who would make a good supervising party, places like these can help children get the opportunity to spend time with both parents. It is all too easy for children to get a skewed view from one parent about the other if all they do is spend time with one.
