You're divorcing, and you have to consider what's best for your children. You want to create a parenting arrangement that gives them time with you and your spouse, but you don't want to overwhelm them. What's the right thing to do?
A study from 2015 found that children do best when they spend time living with both of their parents, contrary to the arrangements many create. While parents might think it's easier to place a child in sole custody with only visitation with the other parent, the truth is that shared custody can be more beneficial to the mental health of a child.
