Time To Put Kids First is a nonprofit organization of fathers, mothers, step-fathers, step-mothers, grandparents and concerned citizens working for children’s rights, parental equality and restoring the value of parent-child and family relationships. Your participation and support is welcome.

Time To Put Kids First

The name Time To Put Kids First was derived from a history of children being placed in the middle of custody disputes, who them suffer as a result of selfish and malicious acts of parents when going through a separation or divorce.

Time To Put Kids First was founded to help support children and those who love them through education on co-parenting and issues pertaining to children involved in custody disputes.

One of our fundamental educational references is THE KEY TO PUTTING KIDS FIRST: A Guide to Successful Co-Parenting. We offer this for free on this website and we also provide them in bulk for individuals who wish to give them away in their own community.

It is possible for parents to work together, even under strained circumstances, when they cooperate for the benefit of their children.
