The goal of Family and Consumer Sciences is to help Oklahoma's families, youth, and
individuals develop and grow in safe and healthy ways. This is approached through
research-based education that focuses on building upon our understanding of the different
aspects of their lives and how they affect others. We survey the population in Oklahoma
in each county through issue scanning and our local program advisory committees (PACs)
to learn about their needs and how we can help provide education that helps people
improve society and the economy.
Co-Parenting is a court-referred parenting class taught by OSU Cooperative Extension
Educators-Family and Consumer Sciences, throughout the state of Oklahoma. The Cotton
County Cooperative Extension Service offers Co-Parenting for divorcing parents with
children under the age of 18.
