Are the powerful effects of shared parenting worth the risk?

Many divorcees may find it difficult to encourage kids to maintain a strong relationship with the other parent. After all, conflict between the two of you is most likely what got you in this situation in the first place. However, studies show solid bonds with both mom and dad give children in Texas the best chance at staying emotionally healthy in spite of a difficult home life. 

The Business Insider provides insight into this topic with the results of a study its reporters conducted. The study's author delves into his own background initially, pointing out when his kids - products of a divorce - were young, the prevailing thought was children needed to remain with their moms the majority of the time, and dads played second fiddle. This may be an easy idea for you to embrace, too.

However, with continued research, evidence seems to prove otherwise. Even when one parent or the other has a difficult time sharing custody, the end result continues to reveal that children fare better with shared parenting. They struggle less frequently in school, have an easier time making friends and suffer fewer ill effects such as anxiety and depression. This sounds like a win for kids in your situation and others. 

One study in particular answered those who suggest the positive outcomes result from the parents' economic edge or low conflict in the home. The results seem to indicate the benefits of shared parenting do not depend on the amount of money you have or the level of conflict between you and your former spouse.

This information does not seek to provide legal advice but to educate about the benefits of shared parenting.
