What is Portal Parenting?

Portal Parenting is a private pay program that provides advice, strategies, and tools to increase your parenting skills. It can assist with how to raise children and provide an opportunity for parents to share ideas and concerns with parents going through similar issues. The goal is to help parents feel more connected, involved, and focused on their child. This course is ideal for court requirements, legal requirements, improving personal skills, and growing as a parent. Learning effective parenting skills will not only improve your relationships with your children and co-parent(s), but also reinforce appropriate behavior within the family.

This course may satisfy any requirement that may be a court- ordered parenting class required in the state of Missouri for parents that are seeking a divorce according to Missouri Revised Statutes § 452.600.

Our online Portal Parenting uses a cognitive- behavioral moral recognition therapy approach to better parenting developed by Dr. Gregory Little and Dr. Kenneth Robinson. We are confident you will find this course to be high quality, exceptional and a great learning experience.
