Help Your Teachers Help Your Kids During Divorce with Teacher and Mediator, Claudia Brown Coulter

Susan Guthrie, Esq., welcomes former teacher turned mediator Claudia Brown Coulter to share insider knowledge on how your child’s teachers can be one of their biggest support systems during divorce and beyond!

You may not realize it, but your child’s teachers and school faculty can tell when something is going on at home. Maybe they see a behavior shift or grades start to suffer. Oftentimes, during divorce, parents don’t make the school aware of this major life change. They are leaving a helpful resource untapped.

Today, Susan invites Claudia to talk about the school resources available to children and parents during times of big (or little) stress. In this episode, Susan and Claudia discuss how to talk to your child’s school about your divorce, how to form an allyship between you and your child’s teacher, and other ways schools can support both children and parents through divorce. This is such an important episode, we hope you tune in. 

Claudia Brown Coulter was a teacher in public education for 21 years. The transition to mediation was a natural one as colleagues and administrators kept coming to her to help them settle disputes between themselves and with their parents.

Some topics that Claudia and Susan discuss:

• School is a safe place for children because there is predictability in their day and therefore it is often where they act out or express their emotions
• What kind of information is helpful to share with the school when opening up about an ongoing divorce or separation
• Teachers are your child’s ally, they will be compassionate and understanding
• Some ways parents and schools can support your children
• Bonus topic! Holiday gift ideas for teachers

Claudia was a teacher in public education for 21 years. The transition to mediation was a natural one as colleagues and administrators kept coming to her to help them settle disputes between themselves and with parents. So she decided to make it official and enrolled at Pepperdine Law where she learned the art and science of mediation. She loves mediating online, especially since it means clients don’t have to sit in the same room with their ex or battle LA traffic. It’s a win-win.
