Think before you leap – moving to 50/50 custody arrangements

I constantly see updates in the news talking about how interest groups are pushing for split custody arrangements.  Dad’s need equal time and should not be seen as lesser parents. Equal time means equal rights.  Split custody arrangements mean that we won’t have conflicts in court and kids will not be used as a instrument of one parent’s hatred toward the other.

Custody arrangements should be ultimately what’s best for the kid’s, right?. So what do kid’s need?  Kids need parent’s who can better communicate and work through problems.  Kids need parents’ who co-parent.  Kids need parent’s who don’t put them in the middle.

So think before you leap.  If your going to implement shared custody arrangements you better include required parenting classes on how best to educate parent’s on the art of communicating.  You better also assess parent’s ability to coparent and have a fail safe system in place to restructure custody arrangements when the parent’s maintain high conflict and create an unstable environment for the child.  It’s not parent’s first, it’s kids first, right?
