He went on to say, “A few things stuck with me from this documentary.”
- We both parents to love us more than we need
- We both parents equally
- We need our parents to stop using us as messengers and spies
A ten year study of adult children of divorce was conducted, and from this study most states have got rid of primary and secondary parenting and terms like custody and visitation. What the study found was that the healthiest thing was for the children to have open-access and shared parental responsibility equally. Children want both parents and need both parents in their lives – even if separate.
Matthew Brickman helps divorcing couples create parenting plans that encapsulate these concepts so that children get what they want but more importantly what they need in situations involving the separation of their parents.
