Just Kids On Divorce
Bill Of Rights
It's Working Out
Taking A Parenting Course = Healthier Children
You may be taking our course simply to help your kids, or because a court requires it. Either way, its a win-win for your children. When you know what to expect during divorce, you're better prepared, and it's easier on everybody. Whether you're working with an ex or parenting alone, you can raise healthier children and protect their rights.

If your income is above $40,000, or if you wish to have more course materials, we provide a Premium Course, which includes everything from the Basic Course, plus five videos, access to the book The Intelligent Divorce, and useful handouts designed to help you raise healthier kids despite divorce.

Why Take The Family Stabilization Course?
Our course director, Mark Banschick, MD, is a physician, a child psychiatrist and the author of the Intelligent Divorce book series. His winning strategies for raising well adjusted children during divorce was featured on The CBS Early Show.

Dr. Banschick has recently been quoted in USA Today, in the article, "Child abuse claims help poison Brangelina divorce"

What effect could all this have on the children?
"Protecting the children from further trauma should be the goal," says child psychiatrist Mark Banschick, retired expert witness in child custody disputes and author of The Intelligent Divorce books. He called on the media to be careful.

"The No. 1 thing is to protect the innocence of children," Banschick says. "They can be traumatized by something that happened but they can also be traumatized by the public humiliation that the family can experience by this exposure. The news media should really handle this in a way that respects the children....They deserve their privacy even if their parents are famous."

Dr. Banschick was also quoted in CBC News Canada on the Jolie-Pitt Split.
