Report: Bears' Urlacher to parenting class

CHICAGO, July 12 (UPI) -- Chicago linebacker Brian Urlacher and the mother of his child were told to take a parenting class to help settle a custody battle over their 2-year-old son.

The Chicago Bears linebacker is seeking extra overnight meetings with the boy, Kennedy, to make up for the weekend visits he claims Tyna Robertson reneged on in May and June. Urlacher also seeks $15,000 in legal fees.

The Chicago Tribune reported Thursday Urlacher told Will County Circuit Judge Dinah Archambeault that Robertson sometimes doesn't show up from her home in Joliet, Ill., for his visitation with the boy.

The two have shared custody and Urlacher claims Robertson violates the custody agreement when she doesn't show, the newspaper said. He requested Robertson be held in contempt for violating the agreement.

The judge ordered both parents to attend a three-hour parenting course, separately, before Sept. 10.

"I'm glad she ordered parenting classes because Brian needs it," Robertson said in the Tribune report. "Based on his actions, he's not a good role model, and I pray that he changes."
