REPORT: Robin Thicke & Paula Patton Attend Family Counseling After Child Custody & Abuse Case

GOOD! Work it out.

After Paula Patton and Robin Thicke experienced a contentious court battle recently where she filed a motion with the court to limit the singer’s time spent with their 6-year old son due to an alleged spanking incident, it appears the former couple may be putting their own issues to the side for the sake of their son.

It’s being reported that the couple attended a family therapy session with their son over the weekend.

“While Julian has remained in his mother’s care, both parties are working with a therapist who is advising on Julian’s best interest,” a source familiar with the situation tells PEOPLE. “The family attended their first joint therapy session this weekend. Ms. Patton will continue to do what is right for her son.”

A second insider tells PEOPLE, “Robin wants to keep Julian’s best interests at heart.”

According to the documents, a school counselor stated in court papers that Julian told her in November that his father “punches him so hard, but never where someone can see.” She and the school principal decided to meet with Patton and then to call L.A.’s Department of Children and Family Services on Jan. 4.

I hope this family therapy session resolves some of the tension and brings this family back together! *fingers crossed*
