The Family Service and Guidance Center helping kids caught in the ‘middle’

TOPEKA (KSNT) – Divorce or parental separation can be a trying time for the children stuck in the middle. But Wednesday is the kick-off for a new program at the Family Service and Guidance Center that they hope will help called Me in the Middle.

It’s a once a week, 8 week program for ages 7 to 9. This program allows young children to talk about and relate to one another about experiences they may be going through as their parents separate or get a divorce. One of the great things about this program, is it’s free.

“The goal for the kids to know that the divorce first and foremost is not their fault. To give them the tools to cope when they’re having a really rough day, if mom or dad is not there. And to just deal with those emotions in the ebbs and flows of the family dynamic,” says Pam Evans with Family Service and Guidance Center.

February 24th is the start of the first of four, 8 week programs. Evans says they will be offering the same program throughout the year for kids of other ages as well.
