I finally was able to make the Parenting Consultant Assessment Form to be much more user friendly. When you visit the coparent coach site, there is a page “Parent consultant Grades”. The form has been created for quick and easy submission.I want to gather information on Parenting consultants throughout Minnesota and across the nation, too. I would like to put together a guide for people who are searching for a Parenting Consultant see what other people have said about their Parenting Consultants. I am hoping to find that there are some good ones, but so far that is not the case. Most reports are of Parenting consultants who ignore phone calls and emails, who interject decisions when the parents haven’t even discussed an issue so therefore there is no conflict, as of yet.My quest is far from over. I am always seeking out information about how to avoid Parenting Consultants and who the good guys are. If we can find those answers, then we will be making a lot of progress. There is no reason why a Parenting Consultant who ignores you should be allowed to take your money. If they did not know that they were jumping into the middle of conflict, then they don’t even understand what it is a Parenting consultant is supposed to be. I know some changes are being made to the scope of authority for Parenting Consultants, but it is not enough. I am glad that a Parenting Consultant can be fired, you could not do that before. It’s about time. Finally we see some accountability. It is still not enough to please me.Stick with me and this blog. I will do my best to steer you in the right direction. I will also keep you updated as the guidelines for Parenting consultants are changed.A special thanks to those who filled out the assessment form on my old website. I know it was tedious and not user friendly. I know how to do it better now and I hope that many people will take the time to let me know about their court authority now that the form is easier to use.If you’d like to see the new form or send your confidential assessment form, go to The Coparent Coach site.
