DadsDivorce Live: Summarizing 45 Shared-Parenting Studies

Slowly, states across the country have started recognizing that it is in a child’s best interest to have equal access to both parents after divorce by revising their child custody statutes. Nonetheless, opposition remains, even though shared-parenting critics fail to base their arguments on objective facts

This is exceedingly frustrating, because for years social scientists have been turning up research showing the benefits shared parenting has for children. Wake Forest Professor of Educational and Adolescent Psychology Linda Nielsen summarized the results of 45 studies comparing children in shared-parenting arrangements to those living primarily with their mother.

Dr. Nielsen joins DadsDivorce Live to discuss the results of her study.
