Families Take Many Different Forms
The Layne Project helps families reorganize and transition as their family dynamics change.
Cooperative parenting is not an innate skill – it takes commitment. The Layne Project is founded on the principal that parents are the most appropriate individuals to decide what is in the best interest of their child(ren) and, in most cases, it is in a child’s best interest that they be afforded the opportunity to have a relationship with both parents.
When discord between co-parents arises, they often lose sight of the child(ren). Through our educational courses, The Layne Project helps teach parents the skills to effectively co-parent and maintain the focus on their mutual interests – the best interests of their child(ren). The Layne Project Supervised Parenting Time Program helps to ensure that children have the opportunity to continue their relationship with both parents, even in times of extreme conflict and/or following allegations of abuse or neglect, while at the same time keeping the child safe.
Changes for children can be difficult. Despite the best efforts of their parents, children often take responsibility for the “break-up” of the family. The Layne Project strives to help children more effectively cope with the stress that comes from having two homes.
