Boulder, CO (PRWEB) February 9, 2009
etendi.com announced today that it has formed two key partnerships to help divorced parents maintain active, healthy relationships with their children and cooperative relationships with their former spouse. These partnerships are exciting because parents in a divorce will finally have the guidance and tools they need to maintain strong families before, during, and after a divorce.
The company's latest product offering, etendi BRIDGE(http://www.etendi.com), is a web-based service which provides parents and kids with a suite of communication tools that can keep them connected even when they don't live under the same roof every day. It also has features which can facilitate a healthy co-parenting environment.
Since mothers in a divorce are awarded primary custody of the children roughly 85% of the time, fathers must establish new and meaningful ways to be engaged in their child's life when they are apart. etendi.com is collaborating with researchers at the University of Wisconsin, Madison to develop material designed to help fathers use etendi BRIDGE in ways that maximizes both the amount of contact and the quality of interactions they have with their children online.
The Divorced Fathers Network (DFN), a 401(c)(3) organization started over 10 years ago to provide services to fathers experiencing divorce, is grounded in the beliefs that kids need both of their parents in order to thrive and that former spouses can learn to cooperate and create lifestyles that support co-parenting. DFN assists fathers in dealing with divorce by helping them choose effective mediators, counselors, and attorneys who can assist in reaching fair custody agreements. etendi.com will be sponsoring their efforts and etendi BRIDGE will provide DFN's fathers and mothers with new tools to foster effective co-parenting environments and keep parents and kids connected.
