In a previous blog I have written about my experience attending the Parent Education Class. It was brought to my attention at a recent event that you can now attend one day of the Parent Education Class by video tape, but you must attend the next day in person. The purpose of the change is to allow parents ease in making childcare arrangements, while allowing access to the court process. One must get the alternate participation approved by a judge before being allowed to watch the DVD. In other words, you must be able to explain to the judge why you are not able to attend both days in person.
