It's proving to be a bitter and ugly custody battle between Halle Berry and her ex Gabriel Aubry over their daughter Nahla.
And according to reports today, the former couple have been told they should take parenting classes together to see how their war is affecting their three-year-old girl.
Halle, 45, and 36-year-old Gabriel, who are due in court today, have been recommended to take the classes by the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services.

Strained relations: Halle and Gabriel have apparently been advised to attend parenting classes by the authorities in a bid to iron out their difficulties for the sake of their daughter
A source told RadarOnline today that the classes were recommended to the estranged pair in the hope that they will see how their fighting is affecting their daughter.
The source said: 'The report recommends that Halle and Gabriel attend parenting classes together, so that they can co-parent Nahla together. The classes will give them the tools to work through their issues, and hopefully become better parents for it.'

And the US website also report that the DCFSe have recommended counselling for Nahla.
According to TMZ, the 36-year-old male model and his former girlfriend spent hours yesterday with representatives from the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services.
It is claimed by sources that social workers concluded Aubry 'needed to work on his anger issues.'
TMZ claim that the DCFS recommended Aubry take anger management classes and sources say he 'agreed to enrol.'A law enforcement source connected with the case told the website: 'Gabriel has a little bit of a temper, but the good news is that he realises it.'
The recommendation stems from an incident earlier this month in which Gabriel allegedly pushed the nanny while she was holding three-year-old Nahla.
Halle was advised to seek professional help after the nanny claimed Gabriel screams at the child and violently yanked Nahla from her arms.
In turn, Gabriel is asking for a restraining order as he believes she's inventing lies to side with Halle.
Meanwhile, he might not be her biological father but it’s quite clear that Nahla and Olivier Martinez have a very special bond as Nahla affectionately kissed her mother's beau.
The 46-year-old French actor showed off his paternal side as he watched the three-year-old playing.
