Parents should not involve their children when they argue. This is harmful for the child’s development. It is also important that children can still see their biological parents even if they do not live with them, for example if a child is temporarily in foster care or if the parents have split up.
Mediation can help parents to learn to communicate with each other, so that there are fewer arguments. Agreements are made during mediation. Everyone must respect these during the sessions. If a child is in foster care or if the parents have split up, Youth Care will prepare a visitation arrangement together with the parent(s).
