Our Mission

TO ELIMINATE HARM TO
ACADIANA’S CHILDREN DUE TO
PARENTAL CONFLICT.

Compassion

Upholding the needs of our children over the wants of parents:

BOI educates Acadiana’s citizens and community leaders about how to better identify, manage, and intervene in cases where parental conflict threatens the wellbeing of our children.

Community Involvement

BOI sponsors parent-intervention programs demonstrated to improve parenting skills.

BOI funds ULL grants for family research and education.

BOI collaborates with mental health workers, attorneys, clergy, and teachers to resolve problems associated with parental conflict.

Research

BOI promotes the well-being of Acadiana’s children.
BOI’s efforts are backed by research that documents:

Family intervention programs have proven to enrich the lives of children by reducing parental conflict.

Parental hostilities and continuing legal battles inflict lasting psychological harm on children.

Parents can learn to resolve adult issues without hurting children.

Healthy parenting benefits children even as their parents negotiate difficult times.

Long-term physical health consequences in adults are associated with their exposure to parental conflict as children.

Addressing the Issue

Through a range of activities:

Hosting free public seminars about the effects of parental conflict on children.

Sponsoring family and parenting intervention programs for the Acadiana community.

Improving coordination among professionals involved with family conflict including judges, attorneys, mental health workers, and the clergy.

Organizing local professional workshops with CEU credits.

Funding community education programs with organizations such as ULL and The Family Tree.
