Our goals are to

  • Help children cope with parental separation.

    Help children to understand and cope with the loss, anger and fear that often accompany familial separation.

  • Help family members support their children.

    Help mothers, fathers and grandparents learn how to support their children and prevent at-risk behavior and teach the skills needed to understand the child’s perspective.

  • Support the diversity of participants.

    Classes are conducted locally in English. Our participants include people from all types of families, including single-parent homes and alternative families.

  • Demystify and de-stigmatize the separation process.

    Half of all U.S. marriages end in divorce or separation. Kids’ Turn promotes a healthy perspective and helps families understand that they are not alone.
