At the end of the meeting, the mediator will ask the child / children what they wish to be fed back to the parents and will check the exact wording with them. The child / children will then leave the mediation service.
As soon as possible after the meeting with the children, with immediately being the best option, the mediator will have another meeting with the parents and will give the feedback. The mediator will not interpret or speculate on what the children have said, they will just tell the parents what the children have asked them to.
The parents will then discuss how to deal with what they have been told with the help of the mediator. As with all mediation, the CIM is confidential. It is used to inform people to help them make the best decisions for themselves and their children. It does not provide evidence for any later legal proceedings.
