Why Do I Have to Attend a Parenting Seminar?

The Tennessee General Assembly in an attempt to improve and protect the welfare of children of divorcing families enacted T.C.A. 36-6-408.

This law requires parents who have or will be entering a permanent parenting plan to attend a 4-hour parent education seminar. This seminar is not designed as individual therapy, but is designed to educate parents on the emotional health of children of divorce.
