Parents taught to deal with kids in separate living conditions

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A local counseling center is striving to help you and your children cope with difficult situations. 

The Better Life Counseling Center is offering a course to the public called "Parenting Separately".

The class is designed to help parents, who now find themselves single, deal with their children and divorce.

According to Jeff Cline, therapist at the center, "research tells us that poor outcomes for children are primarily due to negative interaction between their parents. And so, what we really hope to do with a course like this is teach parents more effective ways to communicate."

The course is being offered Thursday evening at the Paragould Community Center from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
