On Dec. 16, Eminence, Kentucky, newspaper Henry County Local published the story “Shared custody is good for kids” on National Parents Organization’s Shared Parenting Report Card. The report quoted National Parents Organization Founder and Board Chair Ned Holstein, M.D., M.S.
The article read: “Despite what you might believe, shared parenting is not the norm in instances of divorce and separation. In fact, family courts award sole custody, usually to the mother, in over 80 percent of child custody cases,” said Ned Holstein, M.D., M.S., Founder and Chair, National Parents Organization. “Our report highlights that many states are not only discouraging shared parenting, but they are also depriving children of what they benefit from most — ample time with both of their parents — while also enabling a system that fosters parental inequality.”
