In recent years, shared parenting has become the talk-of-the-town in the United States. The reason? Family experts and some legislators strongly advocated that an egalitarian approach to parenting is the most ideal concept for families who are in the middle of divorce or separation.
Not only does it promotes equal sharing of parental duties and responsibilities, shared parenting is also considered the best approach and the commonsense solution as it prioritizes the well-being and best interests of both the parents and the children. Despite some skepticisms, shared parenting has become the recent trend in the United States, wherein several states including Missouri, Nevada, South Dakota, Utah, Minnesota and Arizona have passed their own version of this somewhat controversial child custody concept, with more than 20 U.S. states having the same proposals.
