Aug. 2, 2018-Children in shared care homes fare better than others.
It is now well established that children’s level of stress is reduced and adaptation to parental separation is enhanced in shared parenting, as opposed to sole custody, arrangements. In regard to both divorce-specific and general adjustment measures of physical, psychological, emotional, and social well-being, children in shared care homes fare significantly better than children in other arrangements (Bergstrom e t al., 2013; Fransson, Låftman, Östberg, Hjern, & Bergström, 2017; Nielsen, 2014; Turunen, 2017).
