On Dec. 19, MassLive.com, the site for The Republican, which serves as the newspaper for Springfield, Massachusetts, as well as western Massachusetts, published the op-ed “Study shows obstacles stand in the way of children’s best interests” by National Parents Organization Founder and Board Chair Ned Holstein, MD, MS.
“If we break out of our preoccupations with old debates, we can grasp new opportunities to help children,” Holstein wrote in the op-ed. “We now know that expanding shared parenting is a powerful tool that will improve children’s lives at no cost to the taxpayer. We need child advocates to pressure their legislators and courts to make the needed changes to custody law.”
