The course had some good pointers that could benefit a family but I just don’t understand why it’s not free. If a family is going through a divorce and they have kids, it’s already a difficult time and a financially ruff time in most cases and trying to make people pay for basic info is wrong. We already have to pay for the divorce itself.
