  Hi there! Do you know when divorced parents engage in shared-parenting, they are building a barrier against violence, molestation, suicide and health problems in their children? Statistically, children with divorced parents who are both actively participating in the parenting process are happier, more secure and more adjusted at home, school, and with in a all aspects of their lives. According to Nicole Makris in her article about Parenting Time Guidelines, Shared-Parenting is an alternative to promote the healthiest bond possible between the child and both parents. With a shared parenting plan, each parent’s home is intended to be “home base” for the child where their adjustment to separate households is facilitated by mutual routine between parent’s households. A shared parenting plan is most beneficial when established for a child at a young age to allow time for adjustment to the new environment.

Factors related to the child    

These factors related to the child adresses important considerations such as the age of the child, the child’s capacity to adapt to change and the child’s ability to benefit from a shared parenting plan. Age is discussed in considerations to the extent of the decision-making required for the child and the amount of accommodations that the parents will need to be prepared for. Factors related to the parent    The factors related to the parent focus on the parent’s motivations related to parenting, their level of involvement with the child, the nature of the parent-child relationship and any distractions from parenting that may be an obstacle to a shared parenting plan. This applies to a parent that battles with addiction,suffers from medical issues, interfering relationships and whose employment may impact their parenting capacity. Factors related to the parent-child relationship   To determine if shared-parenting is the best fit for the family, the relationships between each parent and child should be analyzed to confirm if the benefit of a shared parenting plan outweighs the benefit to the child of less engagement of one parent in the child’s life.
