About SuperVision Parenting

About SuperVision Parenting Business

SuperVision Parenting began in 2006 and contains a deliberate use of capital letters and double-entendre. Super-Vision, as in a “super” “vision” for supervision. That vision was and is simple; supervising parenting can be done in a far better fashion if it becomes more naturalized. Visiting parents can be less stigmatized in their children’s eyes. Children do not become bored by being restricted to one location. Therefore, children continue to want to see their parent as if they can do normal things. Parents and children are able to go out into the community and do normal activities such as shopping, movies, eating out, museums, the zoo, Christmas Lighting, mini-golf, and more.

When allowed by the court order or a CFI or with the other parties agreement, visits are allowed to be in the home of the restricted parent. Not only does this feel more natural to the children, but it also helps to prepare them for the time when their parent is no longer restricted. In that way, it helps with the transition period and keeps aunts, uncles, and grandparents in the picture, so no reintroduction is necessary. The shift just comes naturally.

With approval, sober parents with driver’s licenses in good standing can enjoy what we term “mobility.” This allows the children to get in the visiting parents vehicle and the counselor in the visiting parents vehicle with the children, so the parent is able to change locations during a supervised visit. For example, it may start with the restricted parent picking the children up from school, then driving to their (restricted parent) home, playing or snacking there, and then driving to the mall for school clothes for the children. We do thorough documentation in summary of each and every visit, which can be requested by client’s and the other parent’s attorneys. We strive to keep cases with one and the same counselor for consistency and are usually 98% successful in doing so. We further try to set a regular schedule so that especially the child or children know when they will be seeing the supervised parent.
