Children in the Middle now available online

Due to COVID-19, Iowa Valley Continuing Education is now offering an online, self-paced option for participation in the Children in the Middle program. The content of the program will be the same as the mandatory in-person class for persons who are court-ordered to attend a seminar providing education and affirmation for parents, with the primary focus on children’s needs. Topics include parenting skills for divorcing parents, a child’s needs and survival techniques, health versus problematic reactions of most kids, age-specific needs of children, and identifying how a child feels. Step parents and grandparents are also welcome to take this class.

“This online option has been temporarily approved by Iowa Judicial District 2, which covers all of Hardin and Marshall Counties until such time as we are able to resume the in-person, face to face classes in Marshalltown and Iowa Falls,” says Julie Thomas, IVCE Community Education Coordinator. “If you live in Poweshiek, Tama, or another county, please check with your attorney or Judicial District to confirm an online course will be an acceptable substitute. The online course is also available in Spanish.”

To get more information call 641-752-4645 or 1-800-284-4823. To register and pay, click on the red graphic below. The fee for this online class is $48.95/person (optional workbook is an additional $14) and is payable by credit card.
