Why Shared Parenting?
A Few Facts About Kids of Divorce and Separation. Teen violence and eventual incarceration is strongly related to father absence. See Shared Parenting Research. Consider how you would feel as an adult if you could see your children only four days a month. More than likely you would miss them terribly. Children, with their fragile, still-developing emotions, often suffer much more. Sadly though, most children of divorce see their non-custodial parent only four days a month, and many see them even less. Research on divorce shows that children with shared parenting do better in school and have lower rates of depression, delinquency, and other undesirable outcomes.
