Two Dads; One Mom: What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

Problems began almost immediately after the birth. Samantha’s idea of shared parenting was that the fathers would visit the child at her house, and they would all share him there in true “village” style. The father’s idea was that they would each have equal parenting time with the child, the child staying with each of them in their own homes. Beliefs re vaccinating children, schooling, hair length all became issues over which the three parents disagree. Litigation ensued and continues on today with daily spats over length of FaceTime calls, return times after weekends away, vacation days, and doctor’s appointments (who goes, who stays home).

The trend is towards broadening the definition of family nationally to include more than two parents. How it all works out for the children and the parents is yet to be determined.

Co-parenting apps help divorced parents with childrearing

"Parenting can be hard — just ask any parent. Co-parenting adds a whole new complicated element to the job of raising kids, but there are apps out there that claim they can help.

The apps Talking Parents and Our Family Wizard help out parents for a variety of reasons.

Talking Parents launched in 2010 and is free for both iOS and Android users. It’s called a simple service, but the results help people co-parenting, and often not getting along, communicate better and more efficiently. And when one parent is less than truthful to the other, the records are always there for the court to see in black and white.

“Talking parents is if you had a shared white board that you both could write on, however, we are holding that board,” Stephen Nixon, CEO of Talking Parents, said. “Making sure neither parent can change anything, edit anything, delete anything and if they need a copy of the record for the court, we provide that.”

The app is being used all over the United States, Australia and the United Kingdom. In some instances, it is court ordered by the judge to help resolve what appears to be irreconcilable."

Reading with Toddlers Reduces Harsh Parenting, Enhances Child Behavior, Rutgers-Led Study Finds

People who regularly read with their toddlers are less likely to engage in harsh parenting and the children are less likely to be hyperactive or disruptive, a Rutgers-led study finds.

Previous studies have shown that frequent shared reading prepares children for school by building language, literacy and emotional skills, but the study by Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School researchers may be the first to focus on how shared reading affects parenting.

The study, published along with a video abstract in the Journal of Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics, suggests additional benefits from shared reading -- a stronger parent-child bond and less hyperactivity and attention problems in children.

“For parents, the simple routine of reading with your child on a daily basis provides not just academic but emotional benefits that can help bolster the child’s success in school and beyond,” said lead researcher Manuel Jimenez, an assistant professor at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School’s department of pediatrics, and an attending developmental behavioral pediatrician at Children’s Specialized Hospital. “Our findings can be applied to programs that help parents and caregivers in underserved areas to develop positive parenting skills.”

Are Dads Finally Being Treated Fairly in Family Court?

"For most of the 20th century, dads who wanted to share custody of their children after a divorce were out of luck. Courts sided almost universally with the mothers, awarding them full custody. That’s not the case today. In the last 30 years, courts have increasingly encouraged — and even pushed — for mutual agreements of shared parental custody."

“The way that custody is evaluated by courts has changed over the decades, and the cases in which the mother had sole custody instead of the father… that has changed drastically,” says Kevin Kelly, an associate law professor at Seton Hall University’s Family Law Clinic.

Mothers still get more nights with their kids, but more courts now encourage shared parenting duties.

The Tragedy of Family Court

In recent decades, the system has been inundated with cases, and not just those concerning children in foster care. Joint-custody cases, in which parents (whether married or not) have split up, have proliferated dramatically, in part because more fathers want to play a significant role in their kids’ lives. Judges find themselves involved in the minutiae of family dynamics: Should the child go to public school? Should the mother be able to move to another town or county, making it harder for the father to see the child? Should a child stay in the same house with a mother’s new boyfriend? Some of these decisions get foisted off on “parenting coordinators,” both to relieve the courts and to show parents how to work together. Sometimes it helps, but often it leads only to another endless round of bickering over details, and the cases often wind up back in court.

Divorce and child custody: Men cry foul

Mothers often complain about getting the short end of the stick in divorce cases involving child custody, but so do many fathers.

For parents who are trying to juggle shared custody, child support payments and their careers — finding the right life-balance can seem impossible.

Sometimes disagreements escalate into messy legal battles that require judges, attorneys and therapists to step in and help.
In her CNN Original Series, "This is Life," Lisa Ling spoke with fathers who feel the system has let them down.

How will my divorce affect my kids?

Most children adjust well to parental separation and divorce, at least in the long term.
A minority of children of separated parents have long-term problems, which can affect them through their childhood and into adult life. But it’s conflict between separated parents, and not the separation itself, which accounts for many of the problems children of separated parents experience.

Most parents worry how their child will fare after divorce. Most will be fine, so long as they don't witness conflict.

Child separation issues go well beyond the border

When the immigration crisis started over a month ago, I tweeted out to the world about the selective outrage, when children are being separated from their fathers daily in family court and nobody blinks an eye. Well here is an article addressing the same issue..

News of children being forcibly separated from their parents at our borders has been understandably filling the news cycle for a while now.

Unlike My First Two Kids, My Third Child Sees Dads as Caregivers. Here’s What Changed.

Ruth Feldman, a neuroscientist at the Center for Developmental, Social, and Relationship Neuroscience at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, Israel and an adjunct faculty member at the Yale School of Medicine, has spent the past 20 years studying the impact of parenting on the brains of both men and women. She says the adult human brain is capable of the greatest plasticity during the period around the birth of one’s child, and that’s true for moms and dads: “While only mothers experience pregnancy, birth, and lactation, evolution created other pathways for the adaptation to the parental role in human fathers, and these alternative pathways come with practice, attunement, and day-by-day caregiving.”
Feldman’s research indicates that fathers (even nonbiological) may be able to alter their brains as much as mothers, developing the same intuitive capacity to respond to their babies’ needs and wants.

In other words, Feldman’s research indicates that fathers (even nonbiological) may be able to alter their brains as much as mothers, developing the same intuitive capacity to respond to their babies’ needs and wants. But this only happens if a dad shows up for the job. “It’s not just fathers who think about or play with their kids,” said Feldman. In order for this brain plasticity to occur, a father needs to give their babies baths, feed them, and get up with them when they cry at night. He needs to assume a caregiving role and take it upon himself with diligence, commitment, and perseverance. A dad’s ability to sensitize his neurobiological system is dependent on him being responsible for many of the daily tasks necessary to care for his child during the first year of their life.

Change only comes if dads are fully engaged in the day to day of parenting.

Shared Parenting Keeps Families Together

For decades, it was a woman’s job to raise kids and a man’s job to pay for them. Our family courts are still forcing those gender roles on people, even when they divorce or separate. We still see courts making mothers the primary custodians over 80 percent of the time. It’s still a woman’s job to raise the kids, married or not. [ 149 more words ]

Dersch: Shared parenting helps children avoid trauma which can lead to crime

What is the common denominator that links nearly every social ill in this country? President Barack Obama nailed it when he said the single greatest domestic problem facing this country is the breakdown of the family — i.e. fatherlessness. Broken homes are the source of most of society’s ills. “Unstable homes produce unstable children,” writes Peter Hasson at The Federalist. Children need both parents to grow up well-adjusted.

When children have two fit, willing, and able parents, they shouldn’t be forced to lose one of them if parents separate.

Dads push for shared parenting, states consider new laws after decades of favoring moms

The every-other-weekend dad, born from two generations of soaring divorce rates, was once a conventional part of American culture. In recent years, more couples have been agreeing to parent after divorce as they did in marriage: collaboratively.

Now lawmakers are accelerating this trend toward co-parenting, with legislatures in more than 20 states considering bills this year that would encourage shared parenting or make it a legal presumption - even when parents disagree.

Kentucky this year passed a law to make joint physical custody and equal parenting time standard for temporary orders while a divorce is being finalized. Florida's legislature overwhelmingly approved a bill last year to presume equal time for child custody plans, but it was vetoed by the governor. And in Michigan, lawmakers are considering a bill that would make equal parenting time the starting point for custody decisions.

The legal push for custody arrangements is in large part a result of years of lobbying by fathers' rights advocates who feel alienated from their children and burdened by child-support obligations. These groups, including the National Parents Organization, are gaining new traction with support from across the political spectrum, as more lawmakers respond to this appeal for gender equality and, among some conservatives, the frustration of a newly emboldened constituency of men who say they are being shortchanged.

Critics of the bills, including women's rights groups and some legal associations, contend that stricter laws will roll back important protections against abusive or controlling former spouses and take discretion away from judges who are tasked with deciding what is in the best interest of children. They also say that the bills, which would directly apply to only the 10 percent or so of divorcing parents who cannot come to an agreement, are unnecessary because more divorcing parents are already choosing shared custody.

Laws that require joint physical custody could also lead to the elimination of child support in some states, women's advocates say, disrupting a system that was designed to help women who have historically been paid less in the workforce while performing more unpaid labor at home.

Legislatures in more than 20 states are considering bills this year that would encourage shared parenting or make it a legal presumption.
