January 22, 2015

On Jan. 2, 2015, the Berkshire Eagle in Pittsfield, Mass., published the op-ed “Remove obstacles to shared parenting” by Ned Holstein, MD, MS.

“After decades of child development research, this year, three different groups of experts reached the same sweeping conclusion: shared parenting after parental separation or divorce has substantial positive effects on the development of children. For instance, 110 child development experts signed a paper published by the American Psychological Association titled ‘Social Science and Parenting Plans for Young Children: A Consensus Report’ that concluded, ‘shared parenting should be the norm for parenting plans for children of all ages, including very young children,’” Holstein wrote in the piece.
