The Nov. 13, 2014, USA Today story “Report: States fail on shared parenting laws” highlights National Parents Organization’s inaugural Shared Parenting Report Card and features National Parents Organization Founder and Board Chair Ned Holstein, M.D., M.S., as an expert on shared parenting and the need for family court reform.
“The difficulty in convincing state lawmakers to buck tradition was reflected in a first-ever report card released Thursday by the National Parents Organization. The study evaluated state custody laws and found that most of them are not friendly to shared parenting,” the story said.
The story continues, “Holstein said judges across the country still rely on decades-old research rooted in Freudian psychoanalysis about what’s best for children. More recent studies have discredited theories that children should only be with their mothers.”
